“The Sufi is he whose thought keeps pace with his foot – ie, he is entirely present, his soul is where his body is, and his body is where his soul is. This is the sign of presence without absence.
Others say on the contrary ‘He is absent from himself but present with God’. It is not so…he is present with himself and present with God.
— Sheikh Kabir Helminski
