Ring Settings of Wisdom

the angels were certain powers of that form which the folk call the great human

the angels were to it Like the spiritual and perceptual powers in the human nature

but each power is veiled in itself and sees nothing that is better than it

for the angels claim kinship to every high station and exalted rank before allah to divine consciousness

whether it pertain to the divine aspect

or the aspect of the reality of realities

or, in the nature contains all these attributes, To what is required by universal nature

which encompasses the vessels of the world, high and low

and this no mind knows by rational speculation

but only by that art of apprehension that originates in divine unveiling ~ Ibn ‘Arabi
