The One Who Works and the Work Itself

Peace, one and all…

Masaallah

‘God’s work is nothing other than His revelation in the soul when He shows Himself to the soul.  Then God is both the one who does the work and the work itself.  And He is what He works, and what He works is He.  Therefore God draws the soul away from all things so that it can become receptive to His work.  And God’s work makes the soul one spirit with God, which is what God desires most from men and women, that they should allow Him always to work within them without any obstruction, so that they may become one spirit with Him’
(The Book of Spiritual Poverty, p.56)
