Question: The experiences of students of telepathy are sufficient to prove and consolidate the relation of this knowledge with reality but when the ratio of success is taken into consideration it creates suspicion that this is only an artifice of imaginations of the students, that is when one autosuggest concentrative that this is to be sighted and felt then the same is envisioned would you like to tell us something in this regard?
Answer: As far as imaginative power is concerned no one can deny the fact that the whole life is a convoluted network of thoughts. His Divine Grace Qalander Baba Auliya in his remarkable book “Loh-o-Qalam” has termed the creation made from this network as Aura (Nasma) and has said that jinni are created from simple Aura and man and the world of man is the resulting outcome of compounded Aura. This thing has been defined by him by drawing a sketch in that book.
The waves that give us life are responsible for the production of all demands of life. When the inbuilt antenna of our brain receives these waves they are displayed in the shape of thoughts and emotions. Transmission of thoughts is life. Considering the thoughts and imaginative power as something ineffective and useless is nothing but ignorance of the highest order.
Let us perform an experiment. Lie down on your bed comfortably and let your body relax. Now concentratively focus your attention on this thought that your feet are getting warm. Then let this imagination occur to you that waves are falling continuously on your head and are discharging through your feet after leaving their warmth behind to warm your feet. The moment your attention will be focused undistractedly on this thought you will be surprised to note that your feet actually start getting warm and persistence of this thought would take you to that point where you will be feeling that the heat is becoming unbearable for the soles of your feet. The same experiment can be done by imagining a cold wave. The concentration of thoughts would make your feet so cold that it would be felt as if your feet have been chilled with ice.
The act of overlooking or dismissing the idea of acknowledging the metaphysical sciences by saying that these are all the resulting product of imaginations and the imaginative power, in fact, amounts to an escape from reality. And this is the approach of those who do not possess the initiatives and driving force to work.
What are our emotions, feelings, sensations, and urges of life like certitude, sacrifice, hatred, grudge, hunger, and thirst after all? These are all changing forms of thoughts initially perceived in the form of imagination. If we are not informed by our mind about appetite as a thought of eating something we shall never be able to pay attention to food.
This whole universe is a concordant and harmonious film of thoughts and imaginations.
