Bayazid I Bistami
Sufi Mystic. (804-874 CE)
"I never saw any lamp shining more brilliantly than the lamp of silence."
"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.’"
"I went to a wilderness, love had rained and had covered earth, as feet penetrate snow, I found my feet covered with love."
"I desire not to desire, for my will is without value, since I am ignorant in any case. Therefore choose Thou for me what thou knowest to be best and do not put my perdition in what my autonomy and free choice prefer."
"All this talk and turmoil and noise and movement and desire is outside of the veil; within the veil is silence and calm and rest."
