آن عطارد را ورقها جان ماست
آن سپیدی و آن سیه میزان ماست(1599/2)
He regards the revelation of the secrets of existence to humans as the result of Mercury’s influence (2: 2583) and considers the intellect of some of the people who have been specially gifted by God to be superior to Mercury (3/3879). He considers knowledge to be attained in two ways: one by using means which is the gained knowledge and the other by the grace of God which is referred to Ladani knowledge in Islamic mysticism. Referring to these two methods, Rumi has stated that:
خود خرد آن است کو از حق چرید
نه خرد کان را عطارد آفرید(3309/4)
And elsewhere, by comparing his knowledge with knowledfe of an ordinary man, he states that:
از عطارد د زحل دانا شد او
ما ز داد کردگار لطف خو(2586/5)
