FANA-FILLAH — ABSOLUTE VACUUM
Consequently, with the vanishing of the limited ego or "I," mind, energy, body (typifying happiness) and worlds with all of their corresponding paraphernalia, a state of absolute vacuum is spontaneously experienced by the consciousness, which remains eternally when once it is gained.
At this stage God, in the man state as man, with full consciousness as super-consciousness, is now only conscious of absolute vacuum &mdash the consciousness is now fixed and focused on "Absolute Vacuum" itself.
This vacuum is absolute in entirety; vacuum alone prevails and there is an entire absence of the Nothing as well as of the Everything. This is therefore called the "Divine, Absolute Vacuum," and it is not born of Illusion, but it is born of Reality.
This state of divine vacuum prevails just at the instant when the Nothing disappears or vanishes and just immediately before the Everything fills in that vacuum to give conscious experience of the reality of the "I am God" state.
