Imam Mohammed(ra) explains-Ghurrur (sensation v. perception)


The cosmos is in the soul and they call it the microcosm. That is the macrocosm out there, but you have to see all that in here. Then it has reality for you.  Otherwise, it is nothing but what G_d says in the Quran, “Ghurrur”, meaning signs that will send you off in your mind; signs that will make you subject to have delusions if you take them for granted. You will be deluded because what you think is real will be nothing but illusion, allurement, not reality. That idea was long before these Prophets we know of by name. Long before the Prophets, there were seers and others and they saw that the universe was really a reflection of what is in the soul. That is why it is called, “Ghurrur”. It is not real. It is real out there, but it is not real for the person who wants to understand that language and apply that language. You cannot do it. You are not supposed to apply it out there. You are supposed to apply it here, inside. So, these seers were able to see into the nature for soul of man and see that the language out there is really expressing the life in here. God made that [the cosmos] to speak the language of the soul.
