What does it mean to learn
The knowledge of Gods unity?
To consume yourself in the presence of the One
If you wish to shine like day
Burn up the night of self existence
Dissolve the Being who is everything
You grab hold of "I" and "We"
And this dualism is your ruin

Rumi, mathnawi I:3009-3012, tr.Helminski
