Who Is There?

Jalal ad-Din Rumi

Someone knocked at the door of the Beloved and a voice   from within inquired: “Who is there?” He answered, “It is   I.” And the voice said, “This house will not hold me and   thee.” So the door remained closed.

Then the lover sped away into the wilderness and fasted and prayed. After a   year he returned and knocked again at the door and the voice again demanded:   “Who is there?” And the lover said, “It is thou.”

The door was opened
