Humans: Verse Two

Be sure we shall test you with something

of fear and hunger, some loss in goods

or lives or the fruits (of your toil), but

give glad tidings to those who patiently

persevere, 2:155

All our experiences are

balanced between attraction

and repulsion. Liberation

from these dualities is

through the experience of the

inner light, which can only

happen when we transcend

the limitations of time.
