„I caught sight of my reflection;
I caught it in the window.
I saw the darkness in my heart;
I saw the signs of my undoing.
They had been there from the start,
And the darkness still has work to do.
The knotted chord's untying.
They're heated and they're holy.
Oh they're sitting there on high.
So secure with everything they're buying.“

—  Peter Gabriel, Blood of Eden

„I saw my Lord with the eye of my heart.“

—  Mansur Al-Hallaj Persian mystic, revolutionary writer and teacher of Sufism 858 - 922
Context: I saw my Lord with the eye of my heart. He said, "Who are you?" I said, "I am You." You are He Who fills all place But place does not know where You are. In my subsistence is my annihilation; In my annihilation, I remain You. Mysticism and Philosophical Analysis (1978) by Steven T. Katz, p. 92; four centuries later the Christian mystic Meister Eckhart would make a very similar assertion: "The eye with which I see God is the same with which God sees me. My eye and God's eye is one eye, and one sight, and one knowledge, and one love." Variant translations: I saw my Lord with the eye of the heart. I asked: Who art Thou? <br/> He answered: Thou. As quoted in Sufism : The Mystical Doctrines and Methods of Islam (1976) by William Stoddart , p. 83 I saw my Lord with the eye of the heart And said: "Who are you?" He answered: "You! As quoted in In the Company of Friends : Dreamwork Within a Sufi Group (1994) by Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, p. 86 I saw my Lord with the eye of the heart, and I said "Who are you?" and he said "Your Self." As quoted in The Modern Alchemist : A Guide to Personal Transformation (1994) by Iona Miller, p. 119 I saw my Lord with the Eye of my heart,<br/> And I said: Truly there is no doubt that it is You.<br/> It is You that I see in everything;<br/> And I do not see You through anything (but You).
