Some only ride on paths, while others rise across trackless deserts. Those who ride on paths, are like those who can see the way to Allah. Those who ride across trackless deserts, are like those who have lost the way to Allah. Yet, Allah reveals himself within the souls of both; he is the inner reality of all people.
– Ibn Arabi rahimahu Llah in his Fusus al-Hikam ~ The Bezels of Wisdom
