things of this fleeting world in order to sever attachment to them, if it is not for Almighty God’s sake. That is to say, if man’s attachment is for God’s sake and on account of the face that looks to Him, and for Him, he cannot embrace what is other than Him so that his head should be cut off with the sword of “Everything will perish save His countenance.”
In Short: If a person looks at things for God, if a person finds God, nothing will be other than Him so that his head should be severed. But if he does not find God and does not look on his account, everything will be other than Him. A person has to use the sword of “Everything will perish save His countenance;” he has to rend the veil so that he can find Him.
The Eternal One, He is the Eternal One!
