Everything Is Preordained
The revelation of the Creator does not change one’s actual reality but adds to it the awareness he had not had before.

Actually, one who attains contact with Him attains only the awareness. It is as though one has a treasure in his pocket, and he does not know. Along comes another who lets him know what is in his pocket, and this knowledge in particular makes him rich.
