the Secret Direction that Leads Directly to Him

Divine Space1.
After God arranged the six directions -

North,
South,
East,
West,
Above,
and Below -

one direction was still left to be placed; the most powerful of all, the one containing the greatest wisdom and strength, the one which led directly to Him.

God looked to place this Seventh, Secret Direction where it could not easily be found.

It was finally hidden in the heart of man, for He knew it would be the last place that humans usually look.

- adopted from American Native Indian Tradition

2.
And (have We not) built over you the seven firmaments? and placed therein a blazing lamp. - The Quran 78:12-13

God is He Who created seven Firmaments and of the earth a similar number. Through the midst of them (all) descends His Command: that ye may know that God has power over all things, and that God encompasses all things in Knowledge. - The Quran 65:12

And surely your Lord is Mighty, The Singularly Compassionate and surely this revelation is of the Lord of the Worlds. Brought down by the Faithful Spirit upon your heart (qalb).. - The Quran 26:191-94

3.
Ahmad, the celestially praised one, one day addressing his holy companions pronounced while pointing his finger towards his inner heart: Taqwa (God consciousness and divine awe) is here! is here! is here! - Sacred tradition of Islam

4.
O God,
give me light in my heart
and light in my tongue
light in my hearing
and light in my sight
and light in my feeling
and light in all body
and light before me
and light behind me.

Give me, I pray Thee,
Light on my right hand
And light on my left hand
And light above me
And light beneath me,

O Lord,
Increase light within me
And give me light
And illuminate me.

- Prophet Muhammad's Light Prayer

Meditation on Divine Space: This Jewish meditation is a model for orienting oneself within a space whose parameters are defined by the six commandments that continuously govern our relationship to God.

Into our own Divine space that we have now constructed around ourselves, our own personal messianic spark will reveal itself. May we be inspired to redeem ourselves, with God's help, from our own state of exile, and to redeem all of the world around us.
