Rumi

It has only taken me seventy years to begin to grasp the elegant truth in the writings and teachings of ancient mystics like Lao Tzu or Rumi.

My current favorite is this concise and all encompassing metaphor from Rumi, the Thirteenth Century Persian poet:

“You are not a drop in the ocean.

You are the ocean in a drop.”

I only wish I could have come up with such a brilliant and fat free description of the God within us all.
