‘The Bounty Of The Sun Continues’

‘Abdu’l Baha contrasted the imperishable nature of the human spirit with that of the human body which is formed through the agency of the animal spirit and is subject to dissolution.

‘The human spirit may be likened to the bounty of the sun shining on a mirror. The body of man, which is composed from the elements, is combined and mingled in the most perfect form; it is the most solid construction, the noblest combination, the most perfect existence. It grows and develops through the animal spirit. This perfected body can be compared to a mirror, and the human spirit to the sun. Nevertheless, if the mirror breaks, the bounty of the sun continues; and if the mirror is destroyed or ceases to exist, no harm will happen to the bounty of the sun, which is everlasting’.
