A description of the experience

Azizal- Nasafi [trans Fritz Meyer]

On the death of any living creature, the spirit returns to the spiritual world, the body to the bodily world.  In this however  only the bodies are subject to change.  The spiritual world is one single spirit who stands like unto a light behind the bodily world and who, when any single creature comes into being, shines through it as through a window.  According to the kind and size of the window less or more light enters the world.  The light itself however, remains unchanged

The source of the experience
