If you see me, you see Him
“If you see me, you see Him; And if you see Him, you see us both.” – Mansur Al-Hallaj
No human language can express what the Heart longs to speak. Mind’s topography of reason: structure of is/is not … mapping anatomy into functional space . .. structure of cortico cortical interactions.
but is/is not can not
parametric mapping will not
conceive a simple fact of Truth:
Submission the secret of knowledge.
Annihilation is the summit of existence.
The divine was a flash flood. Mansur Al-Hallaj an arroyo.
I’m sure you can guess the rest. The rushing of water
can efface even stone.
Don’t be frightened by the demands of the Beloved.
Don’t shy away from the impact of Linji’s stick.
Become like the clear center of the bead.
(Sobriety was Al-Junayd’s Way and yet it birthed Hallaj. Relinquish the practice of argumentation. Birth mothers know a secret that lovers of Truth would do well to embrace.)
Empty of self, there will be no disputations of absence/presence
but Only, and Submission is the secret of knowledge.
It is where I see You and You see Me.
