Electrical System

Book :Muraqaba (The art and science of Sufi meditation)

Short URL:

When we contemplate matter, then material laws (Physics) and material attributes come to the surface. However, when our mind goes deeply into the matter then we become aware of the world, which is the basis of matter. We can call that, the world of light. When scientists research the ingredients of matter, the atom and its particles come into light. Among the atomic particles, electrons have dual attributes. On one hand, it is a material particle, on the other it is merely a ray. The system of rays inside the atom points to the world of illumination or light. Hence whatever we see in our environment on one hand has a physical side and on the other, it is a halo of light. Whatever motion takes place in that halo of light reflects physical being. Based on a scientific principle, if a number of electrons and protons are altered then that atom changes its form. In a nuclear reaction, uranium after fusion converts to plutonium. Hence, those atomic particles that belong to the world of rays, if any changes occur to them then they change their shape. When a change takes place in the world of rays or light (nonphysical world) then the same change is reflected in the physical identity of that element.


Just as with every physical being, a system of electrical flow works in the same way, since humans also possess the electrical system. According to Sufism, Man is not just a statue of flesh and bones; besides being a physical being, he is also a luminary being. Moreover, that luminary being is its essence. That being is the electrical ray or current.


Generators (latifa)



Three generators work inside the human body. These generators produce three different types of electrical currents. The combination of these three currents is in fact a man.





The light of a candle is composed of three parts. One: Color of fire. Two: Light of fire.

Three: Heat that is produced because of that burning.



When we describe a candle it usually means the combination of the above three states. No single attribute can be separated from its existence. Just like the candle, human senses are also subject to


three electrical rays. All thoughts, imaginations and feelings, whether they are outward or inward, obvious or latent, are made of various mixtures of electrical current.


All three generators are controlled by a central power station referred to as Divine Will (mnr), Spirit (ruh) or the Divine Light (tadjalli).


The electric charge that is produced by generator no.1 is exceptionally delicate and carries high speed. Its strength or potential is extremely strong. Due to its high speed it keeps the mind linked to all the dimensions of the Universe. Also because of its high speed, its reflection that falls on the screen of the human mind is very dim. That reflection is called the whim (wahma). All feelings and knowledge begin with it. It is the most delicate form of thought that can only be felt in the depth of perception. When it deepens, it becomes a thought.


The electric charge that is created by generator no. 1 is composed of two parts. One has more strength than the other. The same electric flow first gains speed and then slows down. The more powerful and high speed charge is the consciousness of the Universe and the weaker one is what we call a whim.


Generator no.2 also creates two types of current, one of which is positive and the other negative. When the negative wave enters whim, it is converted into a thought. Actually, thought is the detailed picture of whim. However, it is hidden from the sight as well. When the positive current envelops the thought it turns it into imagination. When thought gains some form and figure it is referred to as imagination. Imagination is such a figure, which remains latent from the sight but the mind figures out its picture and other details.


The purpose of the electric current of generator no.3 is to give depth to feelings. This electric charge acts in the form of waves. This means that one of its motions is ascending and the other descending. In other words, these two movements give two types of feelings to the mind. Ascending movement is the colorfulness of feelings. In this movement, the imagination becomes so strong that you are involuntarily drawn towards action. Descending movement is the action or its display.


The Divine Will (amr) or Divine Light (tadjalli) carries the entire knowledge or science in the form of a record. When this record is activated, it turns into a whim. This action is called the current no.1


The negative wave of current no.2 gives whim the forms and figure of a thought. Through thought, all creatures are connected in one chain. That is why all creatures share the basic needs, for example, hunger, thirst, anger need to reproduce and so on.


The positive flow of current no.2 gives you the awareness of the imaginations of your own kind (species).


The descending flow of current no.3 solidifies the perception while ascending flow brings colorfulness to it. During ascending flow, all your feelings after disconnecting themselves from the body emancipate from time and space. Descending flow manifest through eyes, ears, nose and limbs. Ascending manifests through faculties of vision, hearing, speaking and touch functions without any physical organs.


All three currents pass through the mind and it moves in all three states. However, according to whichever current has the strong reflection on the screen of mind, you find yourself moving in the attributes of that current. If current no.3 is subdued by the sensation of current no.2 or 1 then you move with the speed of imagination, thought and whim and all hidden information are received in the form of a film.


By practicing Muraqaba the strength of current 2 and 3 gradually increases. By increasing the strength we mean that the receiver of the brain is able to receive this information in a better way.


3 currents:



As we have mentioned earlier there are three different types of electrical currents that work inside the human body. These three currents are the three forms of perception. Each possesses complete identity. Each current creates a separate body of a man. Hence man has three beings in him. In other words he has three bodies: a physical body, a luminous body and a body made of pure light (nur). These three bodies function simultaneously, though the physical body (consciousness) is only aware of the physical actions. For example, numerous body functions are performed inside the physical body. Lungs perform the respiratory functions; the liver does its own work and inside the brain a spectacular phenomenon occurs through electrical current. Through cell division, old cells convert into new cells. Most of these functions are neither provided by consciousness nor does our conscious mind control it. Without conscious knowledge, these functions are performed automatically. Luminous and pure light bodies also work inside us but our consciousness is unable to feel them. Only during dream and Muraqaba (meditation) do we get an awareness of the luminous body. During this condition, our physical body remains inactive. In spite of that, we perform all our functions of life.


During this condition the luminous body is able to move. This body is also known as Aura or the jism mithali. When the power of thought is increased, the actions of the aura become evident and we can use it at our will. The speed of the aura is sixty thousands times greater than the physical body. During dreaming, the body of pure light (nur) also becomes functional but its speed is so fast that we are unable to remember its actions. The body of pure light travels a thousand times faster than the aura. If the strength of thought is increased to its desired level then you could become aware of the body of pure light as well.


Spiritual beings travel with their luminous and pure light bodies by achieving perfection in Muraqaba. Through Muraqaba, the conscious state of humans is dissolved into the luminous body. You then become aware of all the information that is already loaded in the luminous body. Here we would like to clarify that this light is not the light we see with our naked eves. Instead this light is unseen by our physical eye.


Moreover, when conscious state dissolves into the pure light realm, the pure-light body becomes functional. At that moment, you, through these pure light waves, will be able to cross the boundaries of time and space.
