One went to the door of the Beloved and knocked.
A voice asked: 'Who is there?' He answered: 'It is I.'
The voice said: 'There is no room here for me and thee.'
The door was shut.
After a year of solitude and deprivation
this man returned to the door of the Beloved.
A voice from within asked: 'Who is there?'
The man said: 'It is Thou.'
The door was opened for him.
