Man sees what he sees; beyond it he cannot see.

     Bowl of Saki, March 11, by Hazrat Inayat Khan

When an ordinary or an illiterate person meets a poet, he sees the man-part and not the poet-part. But if he is told that this person is a poet he may see the poet-part when he meets him. He now sees that he is a poet in his actions and in his words; in everything about him he sees the poet, whereas otherwise he would not have been able to see this. Thus a great poet may go among a crowd and the people will only see the man in him; they do not see the poet, and they do not know how profound his thoughts are. So once a person begins to recognize God in man he does not see the man any more but God. The man is the surface, while God is deep within him. Such recognition brings a person into touch with everyone's innermost being, and then he knows more about people than they know themselves. ...



Divine perfection is perfection in all powers and mysteries. All these are manifested without specially striving for them. Perfection and annihilation is that stage where there is no longer 'I' and no longer 'you', where there is what there is.

Well now... I do believe I've already shared this lovely insight from Hazrat Inayat Khan... Oh dear!

Perhaps I drink too heavily  Grin

Eric i found this to be an interesting quote: "So once a person begins to recognize God in man he does not see the man any more but God. The man is the surface, while God is deep within him. Such recognition brings a person into touch with everyone's innermost being, and then he knows more about people than they know themselves."

i believe many of us have glimpses of this in others. The difficulty arises when our glimpses do not correlate with the outer conformation. This is somewhat confusing and i have not come to terms with it yet... perhaps i will though. When Amma 'sees' those she blesses she sees that part of them that is God she is able to look beyond the rest. Can you imagine that? To actually see God in others and not what most people see in their brothers and sisters in the world. How can we cultivate that kind of love? It is part of a higher consciousness to want to see more of what i have had glimpses of in others i have known and met.

And this quote; "When an ordinary or an illiterate person meets a poet, he sees the man-part and not the poet-part. But if he is told that this person is a poet he may see the poet-part when he meets him. He now sees that he is a poet in his actions and in his words; in everything about him he sees the poet, whereas otherwise he would not have been able to see this. Thus a great poet may go among a crowd and the people will only see the man in him; they do not see the poet, and they do not know how profound his thoughts are."

Today i practiced music with a woman who is a true poet. Her vibration still lingers on within in me. It is as though we feel the presence of people who emanate something profound. It surrounds us and seeps into us as well.
