(Wasat). The middle or the intermediate. Creation is the Middle (al wasat). It is situated between Sheer Light and utter darkness. The human heart is situated in the middle between the spirit which longs for its celestial home and the downward-pulling self. The Perfect Man is also situated in the middle. He is the intermediary between the physical realm and the Spiritual Realm, the Visible World and the World of the Unseen. He is the isthmus.
