"your remedy is within you, but you do not sense it. your sickness is from you, but you do not perceive it. you presume you're a small entity, but within you is enfolded the entire universe. You are indeed the evident book, by whose alphabet the hidden becomes manifest. Therefore, you have no need to look beyond yourself. What you seek is within you, if only you reflect."
 

Apparently it's in Nahj al Balagha, but I can't find it there. Could someone shed some light on the source. Thanks

Can someone verify that the English translation exactly corresponds to this reference mentioned above. ?

I asked someone who knows Arabic and he said that the Arabic text is different. It doesn't mean this, 
"your remedy is within you, but you do not sense it. your sickness is from you, but you do not perceive it. you presume you're a small entity, but within you is enfolded the entire universe. You are indeed the evident book, by whose alphabet the hidden becomes manifest. Therefore, you have no need to look beyond yourself. What you seek is within you, if only you reflect."

 

Can someone share a reference. ?
