O Servant


O servant, where dost thou seek Me?

Lo!  I am beside thee.

I am neither in temple nor in mosque: I am neither in Kaaba nor

  in Kailash:

Neither am I in rites and ceremonies, nor in Yoga and


If thou art a true seeker, thou shalt at once see Me: thou shalt

  meet Me in a moment of time.

Kabîr says, “O Sadhu!  God is the breath of all breath.”
