Rumi: Even then tied in a thousand knots, the string is still but one

Even then tied in a thousand knots, the string is still but one.

– Rumi

We can see all our identifications, hangups, beliefs, emotional issues, wounds, traumas, and so on as knots. They are parts of us that knottet themselves in order to protect us.

And yet, as Rumi says, the string is still but one.

To me, all of this happens within and as what I am.

To me, the world and all these knots in my human self happen within and as what I am.

It’s all happening within what a thought can call consciousness.

And that’s one.

It’s already and always undivided – and unknotted.
