On Knowing and Loving the Divine

Updated: Mar 1, 2023

“Only He knows He”

– From the Sufi mystic and poet Balyani

Lord, you are so simple

that I imagine you grand.

You are so grand

that I imagine you simpler than you are.

What you are I cannot know,

nevertheless you know yourself in me.

Even then, it is only you knowing you.

I can merely participate in your knowing

and loving of yourself.

And for that I am deeply grateful.
