Peace be upon him who follows the Straight Path!
The true seeker hunts naught but the object of his quest, and the lover has no desire save union with his Beloved.
Nor shall the seeker reach his goal unless he sacrifice all things. That is, whatever he has seen, and heard, and understood (before), all must he set at naught, that he may enter the Realm of the Spirit, which is the City of God.
Verily we are from God, and to Him shall we return!
