“For the Persian poet Rumi, each human life is analogous to a bowl floating on the surface of an infinite ocean

That’s a metaphor for the acquisition of knowledge. When the water in the bowl finally reaches the same level as the water outside, there is no longer any need for the container, and it drops away as the inner water merges with the outside water. We call this the moment of death. That analogy returns to me over and</i> …
