[Sunlight] Other wakefulness



The more awake one is to the material world,
the more one is asleep to spirit.
When our soul is asleep to God,
other wakefulness closes the door of Divine grace.

Har keh bidârast dar khvâb-tar
hast bidâriyesh az khvâbash batar
Chun ba-Haqq bidâr na-bud jân-e mâ
hast bidâri cho dar bandân-e mâ
