women exist, men do not

From Sunlight, a bit of Rumi via Chittick:

Let us speak less, for if we speak, few understand. Pour
more wine, for we have entered the ranks of the self-deniers!
Existence is for women – the work of men is nonexistence.
Thanks be to God, for we have risen as champions in nonexistence!
