Something opens our wings.  Something
makes boredom and hurt disappear.
Someone fills the cup in front of us.
We taste only sacredness.

excerpted from The Essential Rumi

I, too, chose to leave the Oneness
to find my own consciousness
to add to the Light of God.
Along the way, I became forgetful,
as you have,
and I found myself wallowing, it seemed,
in a world so separate from God
that when the full realization of that horrifying belief
came to me,
I felt darkness all around.

Yet, as the longing and the pain increased,
I began to turn,
just as you have done,
to seek the Light,
knowing that if I felt pain because of lack of Light
then there must be Light.
If darkness were my natural home
I would be comfortable there.

So I turned,
as you have done,
and climbed mountains and forded streams
and prayed in mosques and temples and churches
and followed teachers and stumbled and walked again
until I came to the time of evolution
when I could say truly and completely,
“I am one with God.”
