THERE IS NO BARRIER BETWEEN THE LOVER AND THE BELOVED
This apparent anomaly is due to two different factors: man's ignorance of Truth, and the fact that Truth is beyond the faculty of reason and far, far above the sphere of intellect.
The fact remains that man has become God and man can become God for the simple reason that, knowingly or unknowingly, man is God. Only so long as man's ignorance lasts will there seem to be no end to the plural diversity of illusory things. When Divine Knowledge is gained he realizes that there is no end to the indivisible oneness of God.
Under the illusion of cosmic duality the apparent separation between man and God is invariably referred to by masters in terms of the intervenient "Veil" and "Curtain".
Hafiz, who was a Perfect Master as well as a great poet, says:
Miyane ashiqo m'ashuq hich hayal nist;
Kabir, referring to the removal of the seven folds of the Veil, says:
Tere ghunghat ke pat khol, tujhe Ram milega
