A DEEPER MEANING…
The field represent a higher level of thought or understanding. Rumi is explaining that the notions of right and wrong or good and evil are not necessarily enlightened thinking. He wants to lead you beyond these notions to a higher understanding of ethics.
The ocean symbolizes God or the Universe. Rumi is revealing that we are not an insignificant part (drop) of God/the Universe but rather all of God/the Universe is contained within us. This is an enormous concept to comprehend.
No one will judge and punish you for your anger or any bad behavior but you will suffer from this behavior. Anger, hate and all negative thoughts punish the person who has them. This should motivate you to be aware of and eliminate these negative thoughts and emotions or be willing to suffer the consequences.
Be aware that wisdom is everywhere and be mindful not to dismiss an important message because of the situation or the messenger. Everything happening to you is a sign and recognizing these signs requires both courage and an open mind.
