The Angels and the Intellect, the Ego and Satan

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

“The angels and the Intellect are one nature, but for the sake of God’s wisdom they assumed two forms: The angel acquired wings and feathers like a bird, while the intellect put aside wings and acquired splendor. Hence each of them aids the other, each beauteous one supports its fellow. Both angel and Intellect are finders of God; both aided Adam and prostrated themselves to him. The ego and Satan were also one from the beginning and were enviers and enemies of Adam. He who saw Adam as a body fled, but he who saw him as a faithful light bowed. Hence those two were clear seers, but the eyes of these two saw nothing but water and clay”

–  Rumi, Mathnavi

Ya Haqq!
