[Sunlight] All colors become one



The baptism of God is the dyeing vat of Hu,
God's absoluteness, in which all colors become one.
When the contemplative falls into that vat—
and you say, "Come out,"
He says, "I am the vat. Don't blame me."
That "I am the vat"
means the same as "I am God."
The red-hot iron has taken on the color of fire.

Sebghat Allâh hast khom-e rang-e Hu
pis-hâ yek rang gardad andaru
Chon dar ân khom oftad va guyish qom
az tarab guyad manam khom lâ talomm
n manam khom khvod anâ al-Haqq goftanast
rang-e âtesh dârad ellâ âhanast

-- Mathnawi I: 1345-1347
