I stood with the pious
and I didn't find any progress with them.
I stood with the warriors in the cause
and I didn't find a single step of progress with them.
Then I said,
`O Allah, what is the way to You?'
and Allah said,
`Leave yourself and come.'
~ Bayazid Bastami~

"The thing we tell of can never be found by seeking, yet only seekers find it." -Bayazid Bastami
