He had a vision of the universe
that encompassed the principle of the universality of revelation,
the idea that all prophets are an aspect of the Divine Presence
- the Supreme Centre -
and that each is "a logos" in him or her self.
Ibn Arabi believed in the transcendent unity of the inner core of all religions.
He came to realise that divinely inspired paths all converge at the same peak,
and that to have embraced a single path completely
is to have embraced them all.
"My heart has become capable of every form: it is a pasture for
gazelles and a convent for Christian monks,
And a temple for idols and the pilgrim's Ka'ba and the
tables of the Torah, and the book of the Koran.
I follow the religion of Love: whatever way Love's camels take,
that is my religion and my faith."
May grace accompany us on our chosen path.
