Ibn al-‘Arabi - Consider!

It is none other than He who progresses or journeys as you.
There is nothing to be known but He;
and since He is Being itself, He is therefore also the journeyer.
There is no knower but He; so who are you?
Know your true Reality. He is the essential self of all.
But He conceals it by [the appearance of] otherness, which is "you."

If you hold to multiplicity, you are with the world;
and if you hold to the Unity, you are with the Truth ....
Our names are but names for God;
at the same time our individual selves are His shadow.
He is at once our identity and not our identity ... Consider!
