    The Ocean of the Heart 🙂

    O Drop

    Listen, O drop, give yourself up without regret,
    and in exchange gain the Ocean.
    Listen, O drop, bestow upon yourself this honor,
    and in the arms of the Sea be secure.
    Who indeed should be so fortunate?
    An Ocean wooing a drop!
    In God’s name, in God’s name, sell and buy at once!
    Give a drop, and take this Sea full of pearls.

    [Mathnawi IV, 2619-2622, Jewels of Remembrance, trans. Kabir & Camille Helminski]
