Based on indications in Ibn ‘Arabi’s Fusūs al-Hikam, this introduction to the divine-human relationship of “closeness” (walāya) begins with a few of the most familiar signs through which we begin to become aware of the actual reality of that relationship, moves on to the processes of “realization” by which we can deepen those initial discoveries, and focuses on the recur- rent ways that this intimate relationship—ultimately encompassing every dimension of our experience—becomes more present and consciously interactive in our spiritual life.
