The World as One

I am not a Christian. I am not a Jew. I am not a Zoroastrian and I am not even a Muslim.
I do not belong to the land, or to any known or unknown sea.
Nature cannot own or claim me, nor can Heaven, nor can India, China or Bulgaria.
My birthplace is placelessness.
I am the life of life. I am that cat, this stone, no one.
I have thrown duality away like a dishrag.
I see and know all times and worlds as one, one, always one!

-Rumi, Sufi poet and mystic
