The Rubaiyat: Quatrain XXXII

There was a Door to which I found no key:
There was a Veil past which I could not see:
Some little Talk awhile of ME and THEE
There seemed--and then no more of THEE and ME.

This is the thirty-second quatrain of the FitzGerald's Rubaiyat. The poet says that he has come across a Door for which he has found no key and there is a Veil past which he can not see. The locked door and the veil are obstructing his path and his vision. There are things we can not see or fathom and mysteries which we can not unlock. There is this barrier that separates "we" from "You" [The Divine] which we can not seem to transcend. We live of[talk] our lives with all its joys and tribulations with this notion of separate spheres of we and You. All our experiences and life moments are nothing but a constant exchange between the Self and the Divine. But if we were to look harder, we would realise that there is actually no veil, no barrier. In fact, there is no ME and no YOU. We are part of the Divine.We are in midst of the Divine. I am You and You are Me. All things, all Beings are part of that Oneness and that Oneness is complete.
