      Know that He is never in anything, nor is
      anything in Him. He is neither inside nor
      outside of anything. None can see Him,
      whether with the eyes of the head or with
      the inner eye; nor can any conceive Him
      with senses, knowledge, mind, intelligence
      or imagination. Only He can see Himself; only He
      can conceive Himself. None can know Him; only He
      can know Himself. He sees Himself by Himself; He
      conceives Himself by Himself; He knows Himself
      by Himself. None other than He can see Him. None
      other than He can know Him. That which
      hides Him is His oneness. None but Himself can
      hide Him. The veil that hides Him is His own being.
      He is not within you; nor are you in Him. He does
      not exclude you, nor are you excluded from Him.
      When you are addressed as you, do not think that
      you exist, with an essence and qualities and
      attributes; for you never existed, nor do exist, nor
      ever will exist. You have not entered into Him,
      nor He into you. Without being, your essence is with
      Him and in Him. Without having any identity, you
      are Him and He is you. If you know yourself as nothing,
      then you truly know your Lord.
      Otherwise, you truly know Him not.
