Chapter 2                         BE—–(taken from Be Still and Know-by-sufi)

Be, to exist. To have being. What does it mean to be? In reality, the word be only applies to God. God is that which exists. God is that which has being. God is God, and exists without any partner in His existence. The being of God is One, without a second. God is the first and the last. God is first, existing without a partner. God is last, without any being, coming into existence after His existence. The existence, being, and oneness of God are eternal, having no beginning or ending. God is alone in His existence. God is the one alone, existing eternally, in a state of oneness, without a second partner in His existence, God is. The wise have said “in the beginning was God, and nothing was with Him. It is now as it was.”

Before creation only God existed. After creation only God exists. When God creates anything He says to it “Be”, and it is. God speaks things into existence. The word, vibration of God, exists as what we call the material world. In the beginning was the word. The word was with God, and was God. The word became flesh, and dwelt amongst humans. God and His word are one and the same. God is not different from His word. The secret of existence is contained in the word of God. The word became flesh. The word becoming flesh is the divine descent of the word, vibration of God, creating flesh, the material world. What we see as the world is none other than God. God has veiled Himself with Himself. Thus, looking for God is like a fish in the ocean looking for water. My teacher in Africa once said to me, “if you see something, without seeing the existence of God, your understanding of the oneness of God is limited.”

Ice, water, and steam. The body, soul, and spirit. Man, universe, God. This is the divine trinity. The oneness of God, existing in multiple forms. The multiplicity of being.
