Also, a young bee newly come into the world, flies a day’s distance when only a day old without losing its way, and through that drive of divine determining and inspiring impulse, returns to its hive.
Also, it happens frequently to everyone that while speaking of someone, the door opens and totally unexpectedly the same person enters. There is even a saying in Kurdish which goes: “Talk of the wolf and ready your gun, for it’s bound to appear.” That is to say, through a premonition, that dominical subtle faculty perceives the person’s arrival in summary fashion. But since the conscious mind does not comprehend it, it prompts him to speak of it, not intentionally but involuntarily. Intuitive people sometimes say that someone is coming, almost miraculously. At one time I myself, even, was acutely sensitive in this way. I wanted to incorporate the condition into a principle, but was unable to adapt it and couldn’t. However, in righteous people, and particularly the people of sainthood, premonition develops to a high degree, showing its effects wondrously.
Thus, ordinary people even may manifest a sort of sainthood by virtue of which in true dreams, they dream of things appertaining to the Unseen and the future like the saints. Yes, for ordinary people, in respect of true dreams sleep may resemble a degree of sainthood. So too, it is for everyone a splendid dominical cinema. However, those with good morals think good thoughts, and someone who has good thoughts dreams of good things. But since those with bad morals think bad thoughts, they dream of bad things. Furthermore, for everyone, true dreams are windows in the Manifest World that look onto the World of the Unseen. For restricted, ephemeral human beings, they are also an arena of infinite proportions manifesting a sort of eternity, and a place for gazing on the past and the future as though they were the present. They are also a resting-place for beings with spirits, crushed as they are beneath the responsibilities of life and who suffer great hardship. It is for reasons similar to these that with verses like: “And We made your sleep for rest,”(78:9) the All-Wise Qur’an teaches about sleep (hakikat-i nevmiye), giving it importance.
The Sixth and Most Important
Having experienced them numerous times, true dreams have become for me decisive proofs at the degree of absolute certainty (hakkalyakîn) that divine determining encompasses all things. Especially the last few years, these dreams have reached such a degree that they have made me certain that the most insignificant events and unimportant dealings and even the most commonplace conversations I will have the following day are written and ordained before they occur, and that by dreaming of them the night before, I have read them not with my tongue but with my eyes. Not once,
