[Sunlight] God's creative energy is our parent



What is the real meaning of "the inner nature of his parent"*?
God's creative energy is our parent:
the divine impulse is the kernel; the physical parenting is just the shell.
O nut-like body, know that Love is your friend:
inspired by Love the soul will break away the shell
in search of the kernel.

"Serr-e ab"* cheh bud ab-e mâ son`-e Ust
son` maghzast va ab surat cho pust
`Eshq dân ay fondoq-e tan dustet
jânet juyad maghz o kubad pustet

*Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad.

-- Mathnawi V:1931-1932
