just as you fall asleep…


fall asleepJust as when you fall asleep,

you leave the presence of yourself
to enter another presence of yourself.
You hear something from yourself
and imagine that someone else
has secretly spoken to you in a dream.
But you are not a single “you,”
you are the wide sky and the deep sea.
Your awesome “You,” which is nine hundredfold,
is where a hundred of your you’s will drown.

~ Rumi
