Ibn al-‘Arabi and Imam Sultan Muhammad Shah on Continual Creation

Ibn al-‘Arabi and Imam Sultan Muhammad Shah on Continual CreationMuḥyī al-Dīn Ibn al-‘Arabī, the great Sufi mystic and theosopher, explains how getting “bored” is the symptom of the person who fails to realize that God’s creative act is perpetual and renewed at every instant and that therefore, no moment or experience of the Cosmos is identical to another. If one realized that all things are anew at every instant, one would never experience boredom.
