Omar Khayyam (497): “You’re beast and demon, angel, human being”

You who distill within you the whole world,
attend to this voice from the realm beyond:
You’re beast, and demon, angel, human being;
whatever you show forth, you are that thing.

  1. Whatever you show forth, you are that thing. And this can only be searched and understood only after this voice from the realm beyond, from the realm of The Every Thing.
