16 The Ascent Back to the One - Human Beings
The ascending ladder back to the One reaches its fullest outward manifestation in human beings, each of which has the potential to undertake an inner ascent leading back to the First Intellect and beyond.
This ascent is prefigured in Islam’s sacred history by the Prophet’s miʿrāj, literally, his ‘ladder’– the night journey during which he rose up through the cosmos and entered into the presence of God.
