The world but seems to be

by Fakhruddin Iraqi

English version by William Chittick and Peter Lamborn Wilson
Original Language Persian/Farsi

The world but seems to be
     yet is nothing more
than a line drawn
     between light and shadow.
Decipher the message
     of this dream-script
and learn to distinguish time
     from Eternity.


-- from Fakhruddin Iraqi: Divine Flashes (Classics of Western Spirituality) , Translated by William Chittick / Translated by Nasr Seyyed Hossein
