Drown your soul in the ocean of Light

Posted by Picasa

چه زیانستش از آن نقش نفور
What harm can come from that pattern of fright
چونک جانش غرق شد در بحر نور
When you drown your soul in the ocean of light
وصف و صورت نیست اندر خامهها
The writing pen cannot contain
the images you describe
عالم و عادل بود در نامهها
Yet wisdom and justice
are found in those letters you write
عالم و عادل همه معنیست بس
Wisdom and justice hold
great depths of meaning
کش نیابی در مکان و پیش و پس
that cannot be fathomed
front or back
میزند بر تن ز سوی لامکان
Which direction does it come upon us?
The Directionless.
[And hits the body from the direction of the Directionless.]
مینگنجد در فلک خورشید جان
The Sun of the Soul cannot be contained even in the firmament.

Masnavi Book 1, 55
