I love this great teaching of Christ.
He shows us that the soul is more precious than all worlds known and unknown to human beings.
Again, today, Baha’u’llah says that man should be considered as the greater world.
The immense world of creation is only the shadow of the world of revelation. After leaving behind the physical body, the developed soul of man will enjoy eternal reunion with God in the spiritual realm.
Disobedient souls, who attach themselves to worldly things against God’s Will, deprive themselves of the divine bestowals of God which nurture and ennoble them. This is the spiritual meaning of “creating man in God’s image and likeness.”
We cannot gain darkness, we gain light.
The more light we gain, the more illumined is our soul.

The All-Merciful hath conferred upon man the faculty of vision, and endowed him with the power of hearing. Some have described him as the “lesser world,” when, in reality, he should be regarded as the “greater world.” The potentialities inherent in the station of man, the full measure of his destiny on earth, the innate excellence of his reality, must all be manifested in this promised Day of God.
(Baha’u’llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 340)
Our soul most precious
Greater than all universes
