Worlds of Different Makings

I wonder whether looking inside vs. looking outside is to look into two different realms at all. Perhaps it’s more like two different ways of looking into one and the same.

As Rumi once wrote :

I am so small, I can barely be seen

How can this great love be inside me?

Look at your eyes. They are small,

but they see enormous things. 


The Essential Rumi, Translated by Coleman Barks, with John Moyne, A. J. Arberry, Reynold Nicholson, First HarperCollins Paperback Edition, San Francisco (Cal.): Harper, 1996, p.279.
