Intermediation of Ether

Human life has two dimensions. One is the external side and the other is the internal one. External side is the means of identification for the viewers that this person is so and so or this is that thing. And, the internal side is a picture gallery of memories of seen objects, that is, all seen things remain preserved in the internal side in the form of pictures. We feel and understand both these dimensions comprehensively. When anything which is present and inscribed in our internal dimension comes before our eyes externally, we recognize it without hesitation.

This fact has now been established that whatsoever is there in the inner, only that exists in the outer. And, that which does not exist in the inner cannot exist in the outer. External (object), in other words, is a reflection of the inner (subject). Inner is real and Manifestation is only a reflection of the same. Inner is the self of a person – a self which is called the lord’s Edict, an indivisible entity or the soul.

The fact is that all the components of the universe and their movements are present and inscribed in the inner self of every person.

The human self comprises of two portions. One is the interior and the other one is exterior. Interior is real and the exterior is merely a shadow of the same. Interior portion of the self is the unity (oneness) and the exterior is the plurality. Both, Time and Space, do not exist in the interior portion of the self, but they do exist in the exterior one. In the Interior portion of the self, everything is an indivisible entity, it does not occupy any space. It only exists in the form of an Observation. Time also does not exist in it as it is devoid of space. In the exterior portion of human self, Time and Space, both exist.



We view a building from an angle while we are standing by one of its sides. When we want to see the building from a different angle we have to walk a few steps in order to see the building from another side. To change the angle of sight we covered a distance of a few steps and to cover that distance a brief period of time was also spent, Thus to form an angle of sight, Time and Space, both took place. To narrate the same more elaborately, we can say that when someone wants to see the Tower of London, he has to travel from Karachi to London. And to do so he is required to spend many days to cover the space of thousands of miles. Only then would he be able to form that angle of sight by which the Tower of London can be sighted in its proper perspective. The aim of the journey undertaken, involving Time and Space, was to form that angle of sight which could show the Tower of London. This is the angle of sight which pertains to the exterior portion of human self. Involvement of Time and Space produces plurality in this angle of sight.

If the angle of sight of the interior portion of the self is to be used, we can visualize the Tower of London by remaining seated in our place. The sight made operational in visualization produces a dim sketch due to its frailty but it does produce that angle which is formed after undergoing a long journey to see the Tower of London. If, somehow, frailty of sight could be removed, the dim sketch so produced by this angle of sight can take the form of a clear and vivid scene fulfilling the purpose of viewing in the same manner as would have been accomplished after undergoing the hardships of travelling and Putting so many means of transportation into use. The main thing is to obtain the angle of sight however it may be possible.

This makes it clear that the soul of a person is an indivisible entity in its nature. Everyone is encompassing the universe in himself by dynamic ability to focus the angle of sight- the universe which is also an indivisible entity as a whole. Interior portion of the self is unity (Oneness) and the exterior is plurality. Unity (Wahdat) is that dimension which has neither Time nor Space. Only three sections of perception, i.e. Observation, Observer and the Observed are found in it. And the exterior of the self is merely a reflection of that very perception which has been denominated as plurality (Kasrat).

This reflection after involving Time and Space represents perception in a concrete solid form. As soon as man moves in a particular direction and a small period of time lapses, he feels a pressure in his perception and the perception splits up into pieces instantly. He starts thinking, He starts seeing, hearing, smelling and touching. This perception which is doing everything being an observer, too, is an indivisible entity. Whatever is perceived being an observed is also an indivisible entity. And, the observation which is a link between the Observer and the Observed, too, is an indivisible entity. This is the factual reality of perception, unity and plurality.


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.
