Why do you not see Me? Why do you not hear Me? For you My delights surpass all other delights, And the pleasure I procure you surpasses all other pleasures. Love Me, love Me alone.

Love yourself in Me, in Me alone. Attach yourself to Me, No one is more inward than I. Others love you for their own sakes, I love you for yourself. And you, you flee from Me.
I am nearer to you than yourself, Than your soul, than your breath. Who among creatures Would treat you as I do? I am jealous of you, over you, I want you to belong to no other, Not even to yourself. Be Mine, be for Me as you are in Me, Though you are not even aware of it. Let us go toward Union.
And if we find the road That leads to separation, We will destroy separation. Let us go hand in hand. Let us enter the presence of Truth.
Let It be our judge And imprint Its seal upon our union For ever. From: Henri Corbin. I personally believe, that Ibn Arabi has come as close to understanding the nature of the Creator of the Universe as humanly possible.
But how? In the next post, you will see his explanations on how the revelations would come to him. Flashes of divine inspiration used to come upon me and almost overwhelm me, so that I could only put them from my mind by committing to paper what they revealed to me. If my works evince any form of composition, that form was unintentional.
Some works I wrote at the command of God, sent to me in sleep or through a mystical revelation….. It was then that I realised, only both together — science and religion — can answer my questions. Of course even in a million years science cannot find out the true nature of the Creator. Because God is in another realm, totally unknown to man. How can a fetus know anything about what awaits it outside the womb? This comparison is of course childish, when we are talking about God. The religions do not explain much about the nature of God.

Contemplation is the communication device with the spritual world. That was the reason that ancient philosophers and thinkers like Ibn Arabi were so insightful. They had time to contemplate! Then she continued: ….
But decades later, by constant contemplations about the Creator, suddenly a sentence started echoing in my mind, again and again …. Hardcover , pages. More Details Original Title. Friend Reviews.

Sep 05, Martin rated it really liked it. I read this on a plane ride to Israel, to put myself in the proper and appreciative frame of mind. The Rav's insights are marvelous and unique, and the 6 knocks gave me lots of pause and reflection.
It made me think, a lot, and me realize, plenty. I fell a little more in love with his teachings, and a lot more in love with Israel.
