[Sunlight] Lose your wisdom



If you wish your misery to end,
seek also to lose your wisdom—
the wisdom born of human illusion,
that which lacks the light
of God's overflowing grace.
The wisdom of this world increases doubt;
the wisdom of Faith releases you into the sky.

Gar to khvâhi ki sheqâvat kam shavad
jahd kon tâ az to hekmat kam shavad
Hekmati kaz tab` zâyad az khayâl
hekmati bi fayz-e nur-e Zu al-Jalâl
Hekmat-e donyâ fazâyad zann o shakk
hekmat-e dini parad fawq-e falak

-- Mathnawi, II: 3200-3203
