Consider the sun which hath been obscured by the clouds.
Observe how its splendor appeareth to have diminished,
when in reality the source of that light hath remained unchanged.
The soul of man should be likened unto this sun,
and all things on earth should be regarded as his body.
So long as no external impediment interveneth between them,
the body will, in its entirety, continue to reflect the light of the soul and be sustained by its power.
As soon as, however, a veil interposeth itself between them,
the brightness of the light seemeth to lessen.
But the soul of man is the sun by which his body is illumined,
and from which it draweth its sustenance, and should be so regarded.
