To become cold from the coldness of the world is weakness, to become broken by the hardness of the world is feebleness, but to live in the world and yet to keep above it is like walking on the water.

     Bowl of Saki, September 15, by Hazrat Inayat Khan

Commentary by Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan


The spiritual path is easiest if there is not something pulling one from behind; and that force is the life in the world, one's friends, surroundings, acquaintances, and one's foes. Remain, therefore, in the world as a traveler making a station on his way. Do all the good you can to serve and succor humanity, but escape attachment. By this in no way will you prove to be loveless. On the contrary, it is attachment which divides love, and love raised above attachment is like a rain from above nourishing all the plants upon the earth.

The whole purpose of life is to make God a reality.

     Bowl of Saki, October 9, by Hazrat Inayat Khan


Commentary by Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan

As to the religion and the moral of the mystic, the mystic has one moral and that is love. And he has one aim in his religion and that is to make a God a reality. Therefore, his God becomes a greater God than the God of millions of people who only imagine that there is a God somewhere. To him God is a reality.

Our soul is blessed with the impression of the glory of God whenever we praise Him.

     Bowl of Saki, November 6, by Hazrat Inayat Khan

by Swami Vivekananda:

You are the omniscient, omnipresent being of the universe. But of such beings can there be many? Can there be a hundred thousand millions of omnipresent beings? Certainly not. Then, what becomes of us all? You are only one; there is only one such Self, and that One Self is you. Standing behind this little nature is what we call the Soul. There is only One Being, One Existence, the ever-blessed, the omnipresent, the omniscient, the birthless, deathless.

Far from it but I think this is the destination for many of us on the spiritual path.

To treat every human being as a shrine of God is to fulfill all religion.

     Bowl of Saki, January 20, by Hazrat Inayat Khan

This is something I believe in but find difficulty in being able to live up to every day. Maybe it's because for most, those who've raised us do not always consider the indwelling spirit in them to be God. Maybe it's because the idea's of how this expression "should be" have been romanticized and brought about expectations and suffering. Then there's the habits we've knowingly, unknowingly embraced or demonstrated over the course of our lives that step on beauty. It's important we continue to try, even if our efforts are misinterpreted by others or that we do fall short- continue to aim high and continue to meditate. Knowing we are born in limitation, persistence towards the ideal is the best we can hope for, returning more and more to Stillness...

I am also going to quote Lahiri Mahasaya here...
“Always remember that you belong to no one, and no one belongs to you. Reflect that some day you will suddenly have to leave everything in this world so make the acquaintanceship of God now. Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by daily riding in the balloon of God-perception. Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones, which at best is a nest of troubles. Meditate unceasingly, that you may quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence, free from every form of misery. Cease being a prisoner of the body; using the secret key of Kriya, learn to escape into Spirit.”

 Love brought man from the world of unity to that of variety, and the same force can take him back again to the world of unity from the world of variety.

At every step of evolution, man's realization of God changes.

     Bowl of Saki, March 16, by Hazrat Inayat Khan

Commentary by Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan

There is a time when toys are treasures. But the child who cries for a toy comes to an age when he gives it away. And at every step in a man's evolution the values of power and position and wealth change in his eyes. And so as he evolves there arises in him a spirit of renunciation which may be called the Spirit of God. Gradually he recognizes the real value of those fair and lovely qualities of the spirit that change not.
