Closer to You Than You

And He is with you, with you in your search; when you seek Him look for Him in your looking closer to you than yourself to yourself." Jalal ad-Din Rumi (1207-1273)

"The one true God is My witness! This most great, this fathomless and surging Ocean is near, astonishingly near, unto you. Behold it is closer to you than your life-vein! Swift as the twinkling of an eye ye can, if ye but wish it, reach and partake of this imperishable favor, this God-given grace, this incorruptible gift, this most potent and unspeakably glorious bounty."

Bahá’u’lláh, Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 326

Alex, you know the Baha'i texts well. It seems you always know where to find verses that correspond nicely with what I've posted. Thank you.
