NO WORDS TO TELL THAT WHICH HE IS

O HOW may I ever express that secret word? 

O how can I say He is not like this, and He is like that? 

If I say that He is within me, the universe is ashamed: 

If I say that He is without me, it is falsehood. 

He makes the inner and the outer worlds to be indivisibly one;

The conscious and the unconscious, both are His footstools. 

He is neither manifest nor hidden, He is neither revealed nor unrevealed: 

There are no words to tell that which He is.

Kabir

(translated by Rabindranath Tagore)

    In other words–we cannot even begin to comprehend the Creator.
