A Quote by Abu Sa'id Lbn Abi-L-Khayr on god, living, devotion, and mystic

The true mystic is not a devotee lost in ecstatic communion with the One, or a reclusive saint who avoids others. The true mystic lives alongside other people - coming and going, eating and sleeping, buying and selling, marrying and chatting - but not for a moment does he forget God.
