A description of the experience
Rumi – The Beginning of things
How do we know the beginning of time?
How should we know the start of the sun?
The wriggling worm that's buried in dirt
How should he know the start of the earth?
We've heard all these rumours
From fathers and sons,
Though nonsense, we believe it is right
Tell me the argument, tell me the truth,
Or else keep silent
And talk to me less of such things
