Contemplating the Light of God

Lesson 23: Contemplating the Light of God


There's an intellect like the sun's blazing disc—
And one inferior to Venus or a shooting star.
There's an intellect like a flickering lamp,
And one like a brilliant star of fire,
That when all clouds are pulled back from Its Face
Births eyes that contemplate the Light of God.



- Jalal-ud-Din Rumi

(Translated by Andrew Harvey from A Year of Rumi)
