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

I will elaborate, since you welcome my comments and love truth:

I am a son. I have a father. I live in a world.

Thus, the light is drawn, and the darkness re and un defined.

Yet, still, there is something else. Perhaps, a Thank You.
