Excerpt About Potential
Our observation corresponds with this Sufi knowledge, that the soul potential includes all possible forms of manifestation, whether organic or not, regardless of size and shape. So the soul can experience herself, as happens frequently on the spiritual journey, as a star, a planet, a galaxy, a universe, a rock or mountain, rain or clouds, an ocean or a river, a jewel or a crystal, a metallic or an organic form, and so on. The experience is not physical, but feels similar to the physical. It is an inner experience, and the forms are forms of consciousness, but they are the closest a human being can experientially know these manifestations.
