The soul's mirror....by Rumi

The soul's mirror is naught but the face of the friend,
the face of that friend who is of yonder country (the spiritual land).

When your eye became an eye for my heart,
my blind heart went and became drowned in vision.

I saw that you are the Universal Mirror unto everlasting:
I saw my own image in your eye.

I said, "At last I have found myself:
in his eyes I have found the shining Way.”

(But) my image gave voice from your eye (and said),
"I am you and you arc I in (perfect) oneness.” 

~ Rumi
