Darkness is also Light

All the four above indicated Consciouses are present in every individual person. Knowledge of their presence and existence is called the Conscious and the ignorance in this regard is known as the Unconscious, that is, the populace are only aware of the Fourth Conscious. If we search for the real cause of this awareness we would finally conclude that light is the source of this consciousness. Here the word light’ is not indicative of that light which is generally known as light by us rather it is that light which is the medium of sight for the eye even in the darkness. If a living being is accustomed to seeing in the dark then the darkness would be considered an equivalent of the light for it. Many insects and beasts being nocturnal by natural design, are used to seeing in the darkness of the night.

 Suppose we are watching something. If the light that is present between that thing and ourselves is put off that thing would automatically be dropped away from our Conscious. We would, eventually, conclude from this example that light is the conscious and Conscious is the light. If, for any reason, features of light undergo a change the features of the conscious would also experience the same change.

 Under ordinary circumstances there could be many ways to verify this thing, one of them is that if a cup is immersed in a tub filled with water, its diameter, weight and depth would change. This change is either the Change of the Conscious or that of the light. In both the cases we can derive this formula that the thing that is light in the out, is the Conscious within. As though, the Conscious and the light both are one and the same thing. When it takes place within the senses of a person it is indicated by the word Conscious’ and when it appears before our eyes in the out, it is termed as the light.


If somehow we could manage to induce a change in our inner lights (Conscious), the light present before our eyes would also undergo the same change. This system of light is extended upto the final limits of the cosmos. It is not possible that the features of light in any one point undergo a change and the rest of the lights of the universe should remain unchanged. This is the method, in Spiritualism, to exercise Conductive Influence. But, the influence is initiated in the inner lights and not in the external lights. When someone with the powers of Conductive Influence intends to bring a change in the external lights i.e., the outer circumstances, he induces the change in himself, that is, in the inner lights (Conscious). In Sufism, this very process is known as the coloration of Thy Subtleties. If the subtleties of a person (the inner lights) become colored this colorfulness will infuse in all the lights of the universe ,that is, all the lights of the universe will experience the same variation that has taken place in the Subtleties of that person. This is the method of exercising the Conductive Influence in Monastic system by the Administrators (Aqtab-e-Takween or madars).


Loh O Qalam

Qalandar Baba Auliay (R.A)

Alshaikh Khwaja Shamsuddin Azeemi, Chief Editor of the monthly Roohani Digest, the renowned spiritual scholar, founder of the chain of Muraqba Halls the world over has had the honour of learning the spiritual sciences from his spiritual mentor, His Divine Grace Qalander Baba Auliya, the sage of this age. In order to teach him the spiritual sciences Qalander Baba Auliya made Alshaikh Azeemi to pen down the words that he used to narrate. Alshaikh Azeemi being a devoted disciple not only noted the contents but also did his best to understand what he was taught. The eventual out come of his dedicated work took the form of the ‘Loh-o-Qalum’, the first ever book that comprises the whole syllabus of the spiritual science. Who else was more suitable to explain the contents of this document but Alshaikh Azeemi, the very able student of Qalander Baba Auliya. Dissemination of that knowledge, which is the legacy of prophets and had reached him in disciplic succession, has become an obsession for Alshaikh Azeemi because, according to him, this knowledge is the only elixir and the antidote for the ailing humanity in present times.
