It is important to explicate here how the cosmos is formed and what is the role of Time and Space in its control and administration.

Universe has two aspects. If one is termed as the Internal Self then the other will have to be termed as Personal Ego. Internal Self is the base line comprising huge heavenly bodies and the smallest particle of the universe, id est, all the lights which combinatively constitute the great and small heavenly bodies and the other particles of the universe, are the parts of the Internal Self. If we could see these lights they will appear in the form of the concept (Imaginations). These very imaginations are handed down to the Personal Ego by the Internal Self. Transference of imagination (concepts) depends upon the Internal Self. Personal Ego is bound to accept the imaginations handed over to it by the Internal Self. For instance, only those imaginations are conveyed to the rose by the Internal Self which are exhibited in the form and figure of the rose. Similarly, man receives only those concepts from the Internal Self which are to be exhibited in the form and figure of a human being.

What is the Structural Formation of man?

He is a collection of those concepts which acquire the consciousness of the Personal Ego in the Internal Self. Man’s Unconscious (the Internal Self) constructs its own body. That which is ordinarily called Substance’ (matter) is the product of the machine of the Unconscious. Normally it is considered that the diet taken from the out formulates blood and the flesh of the body. It is altogether a wrong conjecture. In fact, Man’s Unconscious (Internal Self) converts the concepts into matter by using the light. Matter makes its existence known by taking the form of physical figure and features and gravity. Death occurs when, due to any cause, the Unconscious does not arrange to convert the concept into matter or substance.

Man in his lifetime usually suffers, sometimes more than once, from fetal and protracted diseases and his diet is reduced to the minimum or is totally forbidden but still he doesn’t die. One would eventually conclude that the physical machine is not responsible for keeping the life functional. These Observations also confirms that what the human body gets from without are not the resources of life. The skill of the Unconscious is responsible for the life.

There are many ways to understand the Internal Self. Characteristics of the Internal Self are innumerable. Man after his birth and then infancy, attains the age of sixty or sometimes even ninety. His body, his thoughts, his knowledges and activities keep changing all time. Every bit and part of his body, knowledge and thoughts changes but the person remains the same person born some ninety or sixty years ago. If his name is Tom he would always be addressed by the name of Tom and will be remembered as Tom.

What is this Tom?

This Tom is the Internal Self. All that changes is the Personal Ego. Internal Self is encompassing the universe. The Knowledge of the universe is not possessed by the Personal Ego because of its unconcernedness regarding the internal Self. If all the interests of a person are limited to his family alone his experiences and Observations will also be limited accordingly and his thinking will remain confined to his family only. Or so to say, he has confined his understanding within the perimeter of his family so much so that he is unable to see beyond his family. Eyes and ears of a person see and hear within the perimeter of the understanding of that person. They simply fail to see or hear beyond the range of the person’s perception. Apparently he enjoys well established contacts with the world around but the understanding of such a person is not at all attracted by anything out of his family unit. His conscious is just like that of a few years old child who is at a loss to make anything out of the news broadcast of the world. From the view point of spiritualism a man is considered to be only few years old even if in his fifties his thinking is confined within the limit of his family alone. Conscious of a person remains immature even in his hundredth year if he only cares about his own individual interests. For this reason he remains unaware about the Internal Self. He, on the stage of universe, reminds us of a three year child present in an international symposium. For the very reason religion is an integral part of the life, A nation can neither observe the standards of the universe nor can its understanding comprehend the sciences concerning the universe, if it does not believe in sincerity for the universe. It has detached itself from the Internal Self. This type of a nation would remain in infancy despite living for many thousand years.

The light which is felt by our eyes is a veil drawn between the Internal Self and the Personal Ego. The concepts are conveyed to the Personal Ego from the Internal Self through the very same light. In other words, informations given to the Personal Ego by the Internal Self are carried over to the Personal Ego by this light after giving them shape, color and dimension. Television could be referred to as an example of it. All that is telecast from a television station can be seen and heard or seen on the television screen but when the communication is switched off nothing can be heard or seen on the screen. Similar is the case of the information coming from the Internal Self. Individuals of the mankind receive the informations through the light. Man’s observations and the knowledge is in accordance with the informations received by him. When the supply of the informations is disconnected for an individual that person expires but this disconnection is form the Phenomenal World only, that is, man is disconnected from one phase of life only, supply of information remains intact from the second phase, known as the Unseen.

It must be kept in mind that the light because of which our eyes observe also has two planes. The senses of one plane have both the gravity and the dimensions whereas the senses of the other plane have only dimensions. The planes of the dimensions are found in the depths of this very light. The informations supplied from the upper plane of light are seen and heard directly but the informations dispatched from the lower plane of the light are observed by something due to which the senses fail to grasp them completely. Actually, the informations received from the upper plane becomes a hindrance for the informations of the lower plane and a wall like obstruction is formed which is so hard that our senses despite their best endeavors cannot permeate through it. Informations of the upper plane are also of two types.

1.                Informations pertaining to the motives. We have partial and biased attitude for such informations.

2.                Informations, not associated with the individual interests.

These attracts our impartial attitude.

If, Keeping both the types of information in view, we deliberate, it would be revealed that man enjoys two angles of perception. One, which is limited with in individuality and the other, which is beyond the limits of individuality. When we look in individuality the universe does not partake but when we look out of individuality the universe partakes. The angle in which the universe is present, we perceive ourselves along with all the articles and objects of the universe. The process of this perception is recurring. The same is called the World of Experiences. On the one hand we are used to seeing the universe in our individuality and on the other hand we see our individuality in the universe, that is, we represent the individuality on one hand and the universe on the other. When both these two representations collide we come up with a vindication to support the representation of individuality. Supporters of this vindication sometimes find it hard to avoid a clash with their opponents ensuring a conflict of ideologies. Individuality could be pertaining to one person, a class or a nation. The biggest of all the flaws of the angels of individuality is that ultimately it renegades other objects of the universe except its own self.

Sight is bound to commit a mistake in this angle, for instance, size of an object in water appear to be different than that of the size of the same object in air. This difference of sight is because of the spatio-temporal restrictions. Unless the observer does not emancipate himself from Time and Space he cannot find the reality of an object


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.
