As soon as I attained to His Unity I became a bird with a
Body of Oneness and wings of Evelastingness, and I continued
Flying in the air of Quality for ten years, until I reached
An atmosphere a million times as large, and flew on, until I
Found myself in the field of Eternity and saw there the Tree
Of Oneness.

–Abu Nasr al-Sarraj
