Somebody once asked Rumi

"Who are you?"

And he replied

"I do not know who I am. I am in astounding lucid confusion! If you label me and define me, you will starve yourself of yourself. If you box me down with labels and definitions, that box will be your coffin. I am your own voice echoing off the walls of God!"

What Can I Do

What can I do, Muslims? I do not know myself.
I am no Christian, no Jew, no Magian, no Musulman.
Not of the East, not of the West. Not of the land, not of the sea.
Not of the Mine of Nature, not of the circling heavens,
Not of earth, not of water, not of air, not of fire;
Not of the throne, not of the ground, of existence, of being;
Not of India, China, Bulgaria, Saqseen;
Not of the kingdom of the Iraqs, or of Khorasan;
Not of this world or the next: of heaven or hell;
Not of Adam, Eve, the gardens of Paradise or Eden;
My place placeless, my trace traceless.
Neither body nor soul: all is the life of my Beloved.
I have put away duality: I have seen the Two worlds as one.
I desire One, I know One, I see One, I call One.

- Rumi

must say that I appreciate the 'forgiveness' quote Luna..

  'it is the fragrance flowers give when they are crushed'  brills.

“What you seek is seeking you.”
– Rumi

Comment by Rosmarie Heusser on March 20, 2019 at 8:59pm

The light of God is a glowing light inside your heart 
It is not dependent on any source 
It does not tire nor deplete 
It is the source of your life and it is infinitely emanating waves of light that makes up your body of light 
You are the heart 
You are the love inside the heart 
You are the light 
You are a mirror of the Divine 
This light is filled with love and in a state of peace, you are able to re-unite with this natural sacred power.
It is not something else 
It is only forgotten
and we have been deprived from this natural sacredness a long time ago, in being told it is something other. 
Return to the root of your being. 
The heart has secrets to tell 
Listen

This little picture shows well the feeling I had enjoying the wide view of "The Alchemy of Love" . Fortunately this "Titanic" will not sink
