My Real Being (4/9/17)
First, I learned about myself by imitating others.
Although I was aware of my existence, I didn’t comprehend my being.
Because I didn’t see, because I didn’t recognize myself, I was only hearing my name.
When I went out of myself, I saw my real being.

It Is Time (1/1/17)
How long will we be satisfied by the shapes and appearances of time?
How long will we watch and sniff after existence?

But, when I look at Him, I see my image. When I look at myself, I see His.

God’s Appearance (6/19/16)
Every creature in the universe is God’s appearance.
Every event, everything has existed in the Divine Consciousness before.

Everything, Everyone Seems to Exist (5/22/16)

May reach His Essence behind His attributes.

The Means to Reach Absence (1/3/16)
Fate is not the slave of our heart’s desire;
Existence is a means to reach Absence.
Our nanny is behind the curtain.
