The Reality of Peace and War
by Rumi


Within the spirit, imagined forms are as nothing
(yet) witness an (entire) world going on (based) upon
something imaginary!

(Witness how) their peace and their war (is based) upon
something imaginary, and (how) their pride and their shame
(derives) from something imaginary.

From "The MathnawÓ-yť Ma`nawÓ" of Jalaluddin Rumi Vol. I:70-71

Translated from the Persian by Ibrahim Gamard
