On the Idea of "Incarnation"

A meditation by Fahkruddin Iraqi:

Although you may not know it,
If you love anyone, it is Him you love;
If you turn your head in any direction,
it is toward Him you turn.

Let go of everything,
Completely lose yourself on this path,
Then your every doubt will be dispelled.
With absolute conviction you'll cry out--
I am God!
I am the one I have found!

In the light I praised you
And never knew it.
In the dark I slept with you
And never knew it.
I always thought that I was me,
But no, I was you
and never knew it.
(from The Essential Gay Mystics, ed. by Andrew Harvey)
