Peace, one and all…
‘When you fall asleep,
you go from the presence of yourself
into your own true presence.
You hear something
and surmise that someone else in your dream
has secretly informed you.
You are not a single ‘you’.
No, you are the sky and deep sea.
Your mighty ‘Thou’, which is nine hundredfold,
is the ocean, the drowning place
of a hundred ‘thous’ within you’.
(Masnavi 3.1300-1303, trans. Shaykh Kabir Helminski)
