There is a wonderful game that we play,
And it goes like this:
 We hold hands and look into each other’s eyes
And scan each other’s face.
 Then I say,
“Now tell me a difference between us.”
 And you might respond,
“Hafiz, your nose is ten times bigger than mine!”
 Then I would say,
“Yes, my dear, almost ten times!”
 But let’s keep playing,
Lets go deeper,
Go deeper:
For if we do,
Our spirits will embrace
And interweave.
 Our union will be so glorious
That even God
Will not be able to tell us apart.
There is a wonderful game
We should play with everyone
And it goes like this…

-Sufi Master Jallaludin Rumi
