What does all this stuff about "Oneness with God," mean? Here is a story. Once upon a time, I was in love. I came to the door of my lover's room and knocked. "Who is it?" she called out. "It is I," I said through the closed door. No response from my lover. I knocked again. Silence. I tried to open the door on my own power. I could not. "Let me in," I pleaded. "Go away," replied my lover. Distraught, I went away. Alone, in solitude, I longed for my lover. Everything around me reminded me of her. Everywhere I went I seemed to see her. My heart ached. Suddenly, the light went on for me. I went back to her room and knocked on the door. "Who is it?" she asked from within. "It is you," I replied. The door flew open and I was welcomed in with love. "There is not enough room in here for two I s," she whispered. Rumi, the poet helped me with this one.
