It Is Neither This Nor That

Peace, one and all…

‘From the spirit the heart took subtlety and from the earth gravity.  It came to be praised by both sides and was well pleasing to both.  It became the locus for the vision of the unseen.  The heart is neither spirit nor bodily frame.  It is both spirit and bodily frame.  If it is spirit, where does this embodiment come from?  And if it is a bodily frame, why does it have subtlety?  It is neither that nor this.  But it is both that and this’.
(Ahmad Sam`ani)
