Man is in the world and opposite it. Accepting submission, which is the way of existence of that opposite world, means the confirmation of the human nature of the created one. And that nature demands a Creator. One seeks the other. The Creator manifests Himself in the created one who is, thus, the revelation of His Words. Without the created one the Word is hidden, unrevealed, and undivided. It is only an unarticulated name. Man's submission or serenity becomes the “transcription” of that hiddenness into revelation, just as the world is. And man can express it, thus disclosing himself, the world and God. The fullness of submission would be the fullness of remembrance. Both remembrance and forgetting are between power and beauty as two inseparable expressions of oneness. The self that wishes for closeness without submission and fear expresses lust and insatiability, and thus denies that God remembers those who remember Him.

Keywords:   God, remembrance, submission, forgetting, power, beauty, oneness, serenity, revelation, self
