Series 004 - Cosmic Body (JISME-E-MISALI)

09-Oct-2011

It is written "It is God who takes away the souls at the time of their death, and those that die not during their sleep. He keeps those souls for which He has ordained death, and sends the rest for a term appointed. Verily in this are signs for a people who reflect."

We must remember ‘sleep’ is a temporary death; as is said in the above verse, souls are held and then returned upon awakening.

This routine continues for a fixed period of time. When this period ends, then the soul leaves the body permanently. From this verse we get a sense of life after death. In our sleep we go through what we are to go through after death.
Glimpses of these are seen in our dreams. The body we see moving in our dreams is our cosmic body, or the Aura.

Around our body there are circles of different coloured lights, which are in the shape of holograms. The body of these lights is our Aura and it has the duty of controlling our material body. Lights of God's Names are working in the fabric of the Universe. The souls of creation come into existence through the formula of lights of God's Names.

In the formula of the human soul, all those lights work together and are used in the formation of the Universe. The knowledge of all these lights is taught to man in the shape of knowledge of God's Names. Soul’s perception is the movement of these lights.

Because the soul is made up of the manifestation of God's Attributes; the soul sees in splendour brightness, just as the material body sees in materialistic light.

Each manifestation in the cosmic world is some kind of manifestation of the Universe. In each manifestation there is a portrait of some kind. This portrait is the formula of the thing which is the circle of lights. The soul always sees in these manifestations. This is the shape of the Universe which comes into existence with the Command of God "BE". These are the manifestation of God's Names, which contain in them the lights of knowledge of names.

Curiosity of the soul enters these Divine lights (Tajalli) in the form of reflection. This reflection then sends rays of knowledge of names onto the Loh-e-Mehfooz (The guarded tablet on which, the activities of mankind have been recorded for eternity). On the Loh-e-Mehfooz lights of God's Names take the form of the formula. The will of the soul, i.e. Light of God's Command, bring these souls into movement. Likewise the reflection of man's soul travels throughout the Universe to learn the knowledge of Names.

When this reflection comes into contact with the mirror of the cosmic world, the first thing that appears in this mirror is the reflection of the soul. The soul retains this reflection with its ego. Ego is the reflection of oneself and this reflection of the cosmic world is the cosmic body or the Aura, whose movement is on the waves of the ego.
