Another profund Rumination –
The Absolute Being works in nonexistence –
what but nonexistence is the workshop of the Maker
Does anyone write upon a written page? Does
anyone plant a sapling in a place already planted?
No, he searches for a paper free of writing, he
sows a seed in a place unsown.
Be, oh brother, a place unsown, a white paper
untouched by the pen!
Translation by William C. Chittick
