Insight from the Masters of Wisdom on the Manifestation of Reality By Mawlana ‘Abd al-Rahman Jami

Excerpted from: Rashahat ‘Ain al-Hayat [Beads of Dew from the Source of Life: Histories of the Khwajagan: The Masters of Wisdom]. Translated by Muhtar Holland. Al-Baz Publishing. P. 174,208.

[The venerable Mawlana ‘Abd al-Rahman Jami said],

-“Today I recieved an insight that I had not seen anywhere before. The manifestation of Reality [Haqiqah] is the form seen in the mirror, not the mirror itself. This quality does not exist in the mirror…

[The venerable Mawlana ‘Ala ad-Din said],

-“When Husain ibn Mansur [al-Hallaj] said: “I am the Truth [ana’l Haqq],” he was referring to his own reality. When Pharaoh said: “I am your Lord [ana Rubu-ka],” he was describing his own apparent form. If Pharaoh had understood his own reality, his saying “I” would also have been acceptable”.
