“The Self is an ocean without a shore….”
“The Self is an ocean without a shore. Gazing upon it has no beginning or end, in this world and the next.” – Ibn Arabi (1165 – 1240)
Our true Self is an infinite Ocean. The clue is in the capital ‘S’. Ibn Arabi like all mystic teachers is pointing to the infinite Whole, the Formless, out of which we, and all things emanate.
Our lower self, our ego gets in the way – until we surrender to the reality of the Whole by quieting our fears & attachments and pierce illusion that we are self-subsisting.
