Al- Haqq: The Truth Is

If I submerged you
in a warm pool,
stuffed up your ears,
turned off all the lights,
and the only thing you could feel
was what runs around and around in your mind,
gerbils on squeaky metal wheels,
what would you be able to tell me
of truth?
It’s the same with God—
when we strip away everything like this,
the every “thing” that
give us some compass or support,
but go further and
wipe out ideas
even knowing you are knowing,
you begin to enter
the Truth
that abides.
