[Sunlight] Bring forward that One who has Real Being



In discourse, negation is used in order to affirm:
stop negating and begin affirming.
Come, stop saying "this is not" and "that is not":
bring forward that One who has Real Being.
Put aside negation and worship only that Real Being.


Nafy bahr-e sabat bâshad dar sokhan
nafy bo-g'zâr va sabat âghâz kon
"Nist in" o "Nist ân" hin vâ gozâr
ânkeh ân Hastet Ân-râ pish âr
Nafy bo-g'zâr va ham ân Hasti parast
in dar âmuz ay pedar ze ân tark-e mast

-- Mathnawi VI: 640-642
