[Sunlight] Seek the wisdom that will untie your knot


Today, Sunlight offers two interpretations of Quatrain 106:


seek only the knowledge
that un-ties the problems
of your life
seek it soon
your number is up
leave alone
what seems to be
but is not
seek what
seems not to be
yet it might

--Translation by Nader Khalili
Rumi, Dancing the Flame
Cal-Earth Press, 2001


Seek the wisdom
that will untie your knot
seek the path
that demands your whole being.
Leave that which is not, but appears
to be
seek that which is, but is
not apparent.

-- Translation by Azima Melita Kolin
and Maryam Mafi
Rumi: Whispers of the Beloved
HarperCollins Publishers Ltd, 1999
