God is your Being

“I told you to forget everything save the blind awareness of your naked
being, I intended all along to lead you eventually to the point where
you would forget even this, so as to experience only the being of
God…God is your being."

-Unknown, The Cloud of Unknowing

I really need to get a copy of this book.  What kind of mystic am I without it? 😉

  1. I can't help but be reminded of the old 77s song, "Pray Naked".

  2. You might want to get several different copies. The translation makes all the difference! (Several are available on-line.)

  3. What translation(s) have you found to be the best?

  4. I'm not sure which is best. I read Ira Progroff's translation which was worth reading for the sake of the introduction and the translation from the Paulist Press. I liked the Paulist Press translation better – but it was interesting to read them together because they very often said very different things.
