When awareness (idraak) gets deeper it turns into vision and esoteric information manifests into pictorial form before the sight. This state in Sufism is called varood. It begins when with higher concentration drowsiness goes away and the esoteric vision gets underway. All of a sudden, any scene would come before the sight. Since consciousness is not used to seeing in this fashion, that is why mental concentration fluctuates. Memory is able to retain some part of the vision that appears before the eyes, while the rest goes into oblivion. Over time, the student gets used to this condition (state) and this process of observation continues during Muraqaba. Sometime the observation becomes so deep that the students consider themselves part of the vision. Observations become more orderly and the mind is able to comprehend what it sees.
Compared to previous weeks, this week was great as far as my Muraqaba conditions are concerned. I was able to get deeper in my imagination and was able to focus as well. Another point to mention is that I have also been successful in maintaining focus during regular obligatory prayers. When the eyes are concentrated, at one point then the sight is stuck and becomes deeper and the esoteric eye starts seeing things. During prayers holy places come before my eyes.
In addition, I have noticed that I have pretty much overcome the inferiority complex and have since gained confidence and faith. Today all day, my mind remained focused. I have also noticed that when I am thinking about something that thing or event comes right before my eyes. Mind negated the space to such an extent that every country, every city seems to be just few steps away. Karachi, Lahore etc all of them seem so close. My mind has gone through an unbridled expansion and speed.
I see different things during Muraqaba. At the same time I feel hot and sometimes this feeling become unbearable. That is why I have shortened the duration of my daily Muraqaba.
I saw during the Muraqaba that there is a luminous body just few steps from my body. The more my focus was enhanced, the more that body became luminous. Even the heart seems luminous. I felt that my forehead has an eye. During the Muraqaba, I felt like I am seeing with my forehead eye. Wherever I see, things appeared to be a collection of various colors.
During Muraqaba, due to enhanced concentration, I became totally unaware of my physical body and my body of aura became more prominent. I felt as if the universe existed inside my body and toward my lower back; the electric current was spreading to my entire body. Suddenly I felt a shock and my aura and I were separated. I saw a huge space and my aura was floating in there. From that aura, a wave of light emanated through which everything in space became visible.
