“You see Him and you do not know that you see Him.” -Ibn Arabi (Balyani), 13th century Sufi. New MJ Awakening Quote

“The word things applies to the separate self and to other things. Because the existence of the separate self and the existence of things are equal in terms of being things.

When you know the things you know yourself. And when you know yourself you know the Lord, the ultimate reality of the Universe. Because what you think is other than God is not other than God, but you do not know it. You see Him and you do not know that you see Him.”

-Ibn Arabi (Balyani), 13th century Sufi
