My Favorite Quotes

“God epiphanizes Himself to the soul according to the essence of that soul, which is at once physical and spiritual. Then the soul becomes aware that it sees God, but through Him, not through itself it loves only Him, not through itself, but in such a way that it is He who loves Himself it is not the soul which loves Him it contemplates God in every being, but thanks to a gaze which is the divine gaze itself. It becomes aware that He loves no other than Himself He is the Lover and the Beloved, He who seeks and He who is sought.”
Abu Bakr Muhammad Ibn al-`Arabi
