One Song - Rumi

"Every war and every conflict between human beings has happened because of some disagreement about names.

It is such an unnecessary foolishness,  because just beyond the arguing there is a long table of companionship  set and waiting for us to sit down.

What is praised is one, so the praise is one too, many jugs being poured into a huge basin.

All religions, all this singing, one song. The differences are just illusion and vanity.  Sunlight looks a little different on this wall  than it does on that wall  and a lot different on this other one,  but it is still one light.

We have borrowed these clothes,  these time-and-space personalities,  from a light, and when we praise,  we are pouring them back in."

~ Rumi
