I see myself as other than God
From Know Yourself, by Muhyiddin Ibn ‘Arabi or Awhad al-din Balyani
If someone then says, “I see myself as other than God and I do not see God as myself,”
The answer is as follows: The Prophet meant, by the word ‘self’, your being and your essential reality and not the self which is called the blaming self or the egotistical self or the self which is known as the confident or peaceful self; by the self, he was alluding to everything that is other than God, like when he said, “O God, show me things as they are.” He meant by things whatever is other than God; so this prayer means, “Make me know what is other than You, so that I may know what things really are – whether they are You or other than You, whether they are eternal and subsistent, or newly happening and temporal.” Leer Más
