Rumi on ONENESS

All quotes are from

Unseen Rain, Quatrains of Rumi by John Moyne and Coleman Barks

Threshold books

and The Essential Rumi, translated by Coleman Barks, Penguin Books

,

Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi the famous Sufi poet says

Our eyes do not see you but we have this excuse:

Eyes See surface not reality

Though we keep hoping

In this lovely place

This piece of food cannot be eaten

Nor this bit of wisdom found by looking

There is a secret core in everyone

Not even Gabriel can know by trying to know

Or as Rumi said

The center clears Knowing comes

The body is not singular like a corpse

But singular like a salt grain

Still in the side of the mountain
