How may I ever express that secret word?  ~ Kabir

Secret Word, Inside Out

O How may I ever express that secret word?
O how can I say He is not like this, and He is like that?

If I say that He is within me, the universe is ashamed:
If I say that He is without me, it is falsehood.

hidden, revealed, conscious

He makes the inner and the outer worlds to be indivisibly one:
The conscious and the unconscious, both are His footstools.

He is neither manifest nor hidden, He is neither revealed nor
 unrevealed:
There are no words to tell that which He is.

~ Kabir
