We are closer to God than the fishes are to the ocean. -- Hazrat Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan

Commentary from Hazrat Murshid Samuel L. Lewis (Sufi Ahmed Murad Chisti):

Now the fishes are in the ocean but the ocean is not in the fish except in a certain sense. The fish have bones, muscles, etc., which are of more solid materials than the ocean. But all things are of God, the material of which the human being is formed, the akasha which provides the substance and food for the intellect, the stream of light which is the essence of heart, and the soul which is God.
