by Reza Shah-Kazemi
The negation of limitation—whether this limitation take the form of the Trinity/Divine Names in the face of the Godhead or of the soul before God—this negation of limitation transforms death into life: self-negation, motivated by supreme aspiration and consummated by divine grace, grants one a taste of the beatitude of infinite being.
Presented at a Symposium entitled “Religions’ Sacred Teachings and their Inner Meanings” organised by the Australian Centre for Sufism and Irfanic Studies on 15 December, 2013. Published here by kind permission.
