How to know God
Advertisements [?]
Since a poster here had an interesting thread saying he/she was God, I thought some words on the matter from a Sufi perspective might be of interest. The following comes from "Essential Sufism" edited by James Fadiman and Robert Frager

p. 199-
O seeker, know that the path to Truth is within you. You are the traveler. Going happens by itself Coming happens to you, without you. There is no arriving or leaving; nor is the there any place; nor is there a contained within a container. Who is there to be with God? What is there other than God? Who seeks and finds when there is none but God?

Sheikh Barduddin
