Ferid Ed-Din Attar (circa 1120-1220).

Wrap yourself in the cloak of nothingness and drink from the cup of annihilation, cover your breast with love of vanishing away, ... Set your foot in the stirrup of unconditional renunciation... Throw everything you have into the fire... Throw yourself naked into the fire... Buber, Ecstatic Confessions, P.27.

I was a drop lost in the ocean of mystery (...). Ibid., P.27.
