O Salman! All That The Sages And Mystics

O Salman! All that the sages and mystics have said or written have never

exceeded, nor can they ever hope to exceed, the limitations to which man's

finite mind hath been strictly subjected. To whatever heights the mind of

the most exalted of men may soar, however great the depths which the

detached and understanding heart can penetrate, such mind and heart can

never transcend that which is the creature of their own conceptions and

the product of their own thoughts. The meditations of the profoundest

thinker, the devotions of the holiest of saints, the highest expressions

of praise from either human pen or tongue, are but a reflection of that

which hath been created within themselves, through the revelation of the

Lord, their God. Whoever pondereth this truth in his heart will readily

admit that there are certain limits which no human being can possibly

transgress. Every attempt which, from the beginning that hath no

beginning, hath been made to visualize and know God is limited by the

exigencies of His own creation--a creation which He, through the operation

of His own Will and for the purposes of none other but His own Self, hath

called into being. Immeasurably exalted is He above the strivings of human

mind to grasp His Essence, or of human tongue to describe His mystery. No

tie of direct intercourse can ever bind Him to the things He hath created,

nor can the most abstruse and most remote allusions of His creatures do

justice to His being. Through His world-pervading Will He hath brought

into being all created things. He is and hath ever been veiled in the

ancient eternity of His own exalted and indivisible Essence, and will

everlastingly continue to remain concealed in His inaccessible majesty and

glory. All that is in heaven and all that is in the earth have come to

exist at His bidding, and by His Will all have stepped out of utter

nothingness into the realm of being. How can, therefore, the creature

which the Word of God hath fashioned comprehend the nature of Him Who is

the Ancient of Days?
