[Sunlight] "And teaches by means of opposites"



God turns you from one feeling to another
and teaches by means of opposites,
so that you will have two wings to fly,
not one.

Ze ân hami gardândet hâli be-hâl
zedd ba-zedd paydâ konân dar enteqâl
Tâ do par bâshi keh morgh yek pareh
`âjez âmad az paridan ay sareh

-- Mathnawi II: 1552; 1554
Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
