Ibn 'Arabi - "Know Yourself" - Selected Excerpts for Meditation - Sufi Mystics

These excerpts from the book - "Know Yourself: An Explanation of the Oneness of Being" (translated by Cecilia Twinch) have been formatted for guided meditation purposes. Please note, the languaging for the description of the Absolute Reality has been rendered gender neutral.

'Abū 'Abdullāh Muḥammad ibn 'Alī ibn Muḥammad ibn `Arabī al-Ḥātimī aṭ-Ṭāʾī was a Sufi mystic, poet, and philosopher born in Murcia, Spain on the 17th of Ramaḍān (26 July 1165 AD). He was one of the great mystics of all time. Through the richness of his personal experience and the constructive power of his intellect, he made a unique contribution to Shi'ite Sufism. He was considered a Saint.

After his death, Ibn Arabi's teachings quickly spread throughout the Islamic world. His writings were not limited to the Muslim elites, but made their way into other ranks of society through the widespread reach of the Sufi orders. Arabi's work also popularly spread through works in Persian, Turkish, and Urdu.
