If there is any lover in the world, 0 Muslim, it is I.
If there is any believer, infidel, or Christian hermit, it is I.
The wine, the cup-bearer, the musician, the instrument and the music,
The beloved, the candle, the liquor and the inebriation, it is I.
The seventy-two religious sects in the world
Do not really exist;
I swear by God every religious sect-it is I.
Earth, air, water and fire: do you know what they are?
Earth, air, water and fire-and the soul as well; it is I
Truth and falsehood, good and evil, pleasure and suffering, beginning and end,
Knowledge, learning, asceticism, devotion and faith-it is I.
Be assured that the fire of hell and its flames,
Paradise, Eden and the angels of heaven-it is I.
Heaven and earth and all they hold: angels, demons, and men - it is I.

Don't laugh like children! You do not understand my state.
Read a chapter from me, unfold a secret from her [the creative Force]:
I am drunk of that wine forbidden by the lawgivers;
I am drunk of the wine of oneness; I am free of color and smell.
I am oblivious to this place; my mind is elsewhere;

The universe was not there; only I was. Adam wasn't them only I was. That light of unity was "I"; I am the Everlasting, and I am the prophet Elias. -The universe gets its light from me; Adam took his form from me; I am the All-Wise, the Knower, the Judge of all judges.

O Thou Soul who art free of "we" and "I,"
0 Thou who art the subtle Essence of the souls of men and women,
When a man or woman unites with Thee, Thou art that One; when their individuality is obliterated, Thou alone art.
Thou didst contrive this "I" and this "we" only so that Thou mightest play the game of worship with Thyself,
So that all "Is" and "Thous" should become one Soul, immersed at last in the one Beloved.

Experience shows that the spirit is nothing but awareness. Whoever has greater awareness has greater spirit When the spirit becomes greater and passes beyond all bounds, the spirits of all things become obedient to it.

Know that the World of Unity lies in the other direction from the senses. If you want Oneness, go in that direction!

What can I say about the stations of those who have attained union except that they are infinite, while the stations of the travelers have a limit? The limit of the travelers is union. But what could be the limit of those in union? -- that is, that union which cannot be marred by separation. No ripe grape ever again becomes green, and no mature fruit ever again becomes raw.

How could the rays of God's light fit into the heart? Yet when you search you will find it there, not from the point of view of containment such that it could be said that the light is in that place. You will find it through that place

His ego falls like a battered wall. He unites with God, alive, but emptied of Nasuh (i.e. himself).
