Now is the traveler unaware of himself, and of aught besides himself.

He seeth neither ignorance nor knowledge, neither doubt nor certitude; he knoweth not the morn of guidance from the night of error.

He fleeth both from unbelief and faith, and deadly poison is a balm to him. Wherefore Attar [1] saith: For the infidel, error ~ for the faithful, faith; For Attar's heart, an atom of Thy pain. ~ The Seven Valleys
