Usually we think that we are looking at a tree, but the tree is looking at itself through us.

Without this instrument,
the tree doesn't get to see itself.

We are the sensing instruments of the Divine."

- Adyashanti

MysticSaint Thoughts: Although Adyashanti is using the tree analogy here to help us understand our sacredness, our oneness and our being the instrument, it is not to be wrongly interpreted that the Divine has limitations. Divine is beyond limitations. In Islamic theology this being the instrument of the Divine is what signifies "the servanthood".

There is none in the heavens and the earth but cometh unto the Divine, the Most Gracious as a servant. - The Quran 19:93

From the teachings of Islam, servanthood is synonymous to instrument. Thus the Divine and the whole of created manifestation is like the Lord and His servants, the Doer and His intrument.

And I have prepared thee for Myself - The Quran 20:41

So in this analogy of tree and us seeing, there is something more and beyond. When the duality is removed the grand oneness reveals itself in grand scale. Then we realize that it is not us who is seeing. From the point of view of the Grand Reality it is only the Divine That is the All Seeing.

Allah - Al Baseer - the Divine is "the All Seeing". Pin It Now!
