"I am a fish, you are the moon", by Jalaluddin Rumi

Moments when I get caught in a disturbing thought, or emotion, I try (not always succeed, alas) to come back to Simplicity, to Nature, to Silence, to Breath, and to Poetry.


I also remember the question "Who am I?", which often brings me to read Rumi - again -.

I remembered the poem "Tending Two Shops"

"You are the free swimming fish", he says in that poem.


And then these words, also by Rumi:


"Don't measure it with a cup.

I am a fish.

You are the moon.

You cannot touch me,

but your light can fill the ocean where I live"




"You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop"
