A description of the experience

The Game of Love - Rumi

 In the early morning
A lover asked her beloved
‘Do you love me more than yourself?’
‘More than myself?

For sure I have no self any more –
I am you already
‘The ‘I’ has gone, the ‘you’ has come about
Even my identity is gone

The answer is taken for granted
‘You and I’ has no meaning
The ‘I’ has vanished like a drop
Into an ocean of honey

The source of the experience

Rumi, Jalaladdin
