"My Heart was sunk in the sleep of delusion, and my self-obsessed mind swept up in a whirlwind of dreams, so that the Real Glory of His True Nature was hidden from me until He revealed It in all its majestic splendor. Such is the compassion of my Lord and God."
"In the parched desert of my sinful life I groaned in agony, trembling with fear, until my Lord put an end to my suffering and revealed to me in the sight of men that state of Grace which even the gods cannot know."
"My mind’s activity along with my ego subsided and fell into total abeyance so that no object of thought existed within my consciousness. Then, in that overflowing emptiness, did I experience the goal of the Self, eternal and ever present, as my own True goal."
