This short book introduces a view of the world which is very different to that held by many people. For some it may serve a purpose in shattering preconceived notions and presenting an entirely new perspective which opens up a compassionate and responsive universe. It reflects an ardent desire to reach beyond the peripheral uncertainties of everyday life and discover for ourselves, a certainty in the oneness of being which constantly flows through everything that is. 'When the secret of an atom is discovered, the secret of all created things is made clear' This is a new translation of a work attributed to Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi (born in Andalusia in 1165) and more recently to a close contemporary, Awhad al-din Balyani (died 1287). It speaks directly to the heart of each person who seeks self-knowledge. Often in the form of a dialogue with the seeker the author answers some of the perplexing questions that arise on the journey.
