Rumi believed that we are a part of Universal intelligence that has all the essence of the whole.
“You are not a drop in the ocean; you are the entire ocean in a drop.”
Rumi believed we are multidimensional beings with physical and nonphysical or energetic bodies.
Nonphysical or energetic bodies are made from the subtle matter invisible to the naked eyes as the subtle matter vibrates at a much higher frequency than the matter that our physical bodies are made of.
Based on quantum physic, the matter is a pocket of individualized energy in the field. According to their vibrational speed, that can become a visible or invisible form of energy/matter.
In our physical body, the vibrational speed is much slower than our energy bodies. And that is the reason that our physical body is a form of energy/matter that is visible to our eyes.
On the other hand, energetic bodies have an exceedingly high vibration speed and take the form of matter/energy that is not visible to our physical bodies.
The electromagnetic field is also not visible to our naked eyes, but we know it exists based on its force exert. Couple hundred years, no one believed in the existence of such power, but once the proper tool developed, no one denied its existence.
One day scientists may develop such a tool to measure the effect of the subtle energy and our nonphysical body. Simply said, the nonphysical body is in the form of matter not visible to our eyes.
This was the case with the electromagnetic force, gravity force, and atomic force just a few hundred years ago.
To the people who lived at that time, these energies did not exist.
Many scientists are being laughed upon or jailed, even talking about such a form of force.
Nonphysical bodies are holographic template energy for the formation of the physical body. The energetic bodies are superimposed to our physical body like Russian dolls, one inside another one.
Energetic bodies existed before the physical body, which is the blueprint for constructing our physical body. In messages or codes through the chakras, subtle energy moves to the physical body and is the vital life force for the physical body. The subtle energy gets into our body with the first breath. Life can not exist without this crucial life force or subtle energy which moves through our physical body from our energetic body. there are four main types of energetic or nonphysical bodies:
1-Etheric body- the closest energy body to the physical body connected to the physical body through the physical and etheric interface, which contains chakras, Nadis, and meridian system, an energetic network that transfers subtle energy from the energetic to the physical body. There are many scientific pieces of research point to the existence of an etheric body.
2- Astral body or emotional body is the second closest energetic body to our physical body. Our fears, love, hate form here and are transferred through a vibrant network to our brain for interpretation. The most psychological problem, such as depression, develop at this level due to energy imbalances which then affect the physiology of our brain.
3- The mental body is where invention and discovery reside. Once we connect to this energetic body, the opportunity for creation and discovery is limitless.
4- Casual or spiritual bodies have no valid scientific validation, but we all have our opinions and beliefs based on our upbringing and religion. Only a few have connected to this energetic body. This area has the closest connection with Universal intelligence and has a direct relationship with intuitive knowledge.
Mohamad, Buddha, Jesus, and Moses reached and connected to this energy body through years of meditation and discipline.
In this poem, Rumi refers to the energetic body as the unseen world and the universal intelligence (source).
“Everything you see has its roots in the unseen world; the forms may change, yet the essence remains the same. Every wonderful sight will vanish, every sweet word will fade, but do not be disheartened. They come from eternal, growing, branching out, giving new life and new joy. Why do you weep? The source is within you, and this whole cosmos is springing up from it.”
