T he first time I entered the Holy House,” said Bayazid, I saw the Holy House. The second time I entered it, I saw the Lord of the House. The third time I saw neither the House nor the Lord of the House.

By this Bayazid meant, I became lost in God, so that I knew nothing. Had I seen at all, I would have been God.
