(If you wish to more benefit from this article, please read first our "The Alems" titled article.)

I had talked about two faces of the big reality created by God (Allah), about Halk Alem (haalk aalam) and Emr Alem (emr aalam), in previous article. And I had stated that the human is a little world bearing the ingredients from both worlds.

The human is been constituted from two components as body and spirit. The first of these is from the Halk Alem, and represents the matter of the Human. The second is from the Emr Alem, and represents of the essence and the meaning of the Human.

The connection and the interaction between these two fragments are provided through the Heart. Implied meaning with the Heart word is not the meat part which placed in the middle left of the chest and pumping the blood to the body. It is the spiritual power representing by this organ. The soul or the conscience are also told to this. It is a representative and imaginary being.

The Heart is very important. The knowledges and images belonging to both worlds (The Halk and Emr Alems) are represented in the Heart. The impressions of all the somatic, physiological and psychological dimensions, which appear as joys and pains, and also all the products of the mind and moral dimensions are take place in the Heart. For this reason, this imaginary world occuring in the Heart has been named as "the Misal Alem" (the misaal aalam). Misal means instance or example. The Misal Alem is not a reality world such as The Halk and Emr Alems, but it is an imaginary wold, an images arena, be formed from the images of other two alems.

An example can be given from nowadays facts to able to better explain the case: Now, please think the human as a personal computer named PC. The body of the human is the mechanical part of PC named hardware. The spirit of the human also likes the programme named software. We can compares to the monitor the meat part named heart. And also we can think the Heart, which is representative of the spiritual values that we tries to explain since we start, such as the images appearing on the monitor.

When a defect or a perfection occurs on the mechanical part of PC (for example on monitor board, power supply or on keyboard), this reflects to the monitor completely. In the same way, the whole features of the programme, all the defects and perfections on it, reflect to the monitor completely. Like this, all the occurrences on our body and our spirit completely reflect to the Heart which is our soul window.

Such as managing through the monitor images every things controling by PC, also, our whole life is managed by our Heart. If the Heart is good, also the human is good. But if the Heart is bad, also the human is wicked.

The Heart is not only an imaginary world on which be represented the Halk and Emr Alems (the matter and meaning worlds), but it is an imaginary passage, a passing point, between both worlds, at the same time. The Heart is a window opening to the meaning world from the matters world. The human can not observe and perceive the occurrences on the Emr Alem (the spiritual world) without his heart window. For this reason, the humans, whose hearts are blackened with sins, suppose that there is not a Spiritual World, because they can not see it.

I had explained in previous article: The components of the Halk Alem are "the objects". This world is constituted from "objects", "cases" and "phenomenons". And it is a "volumed", "timed" and "measurable" world. But the Emr Alem is not so that. It is constituted a pleasant and spiritual things such as spirits. It is not "spaced" and "timed". The knowledges of this world, namely the Meaning World, can not be obtained with the methods, ways and techniques belonging to the Matters World. The knowledges belong to this world are obtained only through the Heart. The key of this is "Belief". If you approachs with computer example to this case, you can think the Belief as the password for arriving any programme. How you can not arrive the programme without a password, also, you can not arrive the knowledges of the Meaning World without the Belief.

I had told that, the heart is an imanginary arena where the knowledges of both world are represented there. The representation ratios of the knowledges of both worlds on this arena, depend on the Belief.

The Heart comes to life by the Belief. The Heart without Belief is a dead heart from the viewpoint of spirit, at that the knowledges and images belonging to the Matter World take place, only. The persons possessing such dead heart (by losing his "meaning"), that take place images only belong to the Matter World in, is named as "heartless" or "unconscientious". Such heartless persons can do every wickedness, due to thinking only his world life.

The revival of the Heart begins with believing. When appeared a belief and love as little as grain for his God in a person's heart, the password has been decoded and a passage has been opened to "the meaning world" in person's heart. After this, it begins to represent not only the knowledges belong to the Matters World, but the knowledges belong to the Meaning World, at the heart. Flowing this knowledges to the Heart is in ratio of person's belief. As the knowledges belong to the Matter World disturb the heart, the knowledges belong to the Meaning World relax the heart and give serenity to the heart. For this reason, the worldly persons, who possess a weak belief, are always uneasy, anxious and flurried. As long as their heart are refreshed by increasing their belief, a conspicuous quiet down seems on these persons.

The largest barricade in front of obtaining the knowledges belong to the Meaning World, by seeing through the heart window, are representations belong to the Matters World, resided in the heart. These are the curtains belong to the Matters World, in front of the Meaning World. If the human destroys one by one these materialistic curtains in the heart, by restricting the desires and ambitions of his ego, he gets possibility of seeing uncloudedly and clearly the things belonging to the Meaning World.

The process of destroying the representations belong to the Matters World situated in the heart is named "cleaning of ego". Cleaning of ego, means its extinction. A such man getting rid of his egoism begins to better understand every knowledge coming from his God. And he also better knows his God. The way going to the true Belief passes through this cleaning.
