Unpublished papers from the Nekbakht Foundation Archives
Cupid and Psyche
May 5th 1921

"In the story of Cupid and Psyche we are told that Venus sent Cupid on earth to teach the lesson of love, to the heart that knew not love, and so Cupid came and kindled love in the heart of Psyche, and Cupid and Psyche loved each other. But Cupid forgot the whole of the injunction that had been given to him, he remembered the beginning, but in his great love he forgot the end and the result was that Venus became jealous and separated them, until they could again be united on the day of perfection.

...

The nature of life on earth is illusory and in the Sanskrit tongue it is called Maya or illusion, and every soul having the spark of the divine love, forgets the use and the purpose of that spark and begins to love itself most.

By a keen study of human life, man will find that as a rule, when he claims that he loves, in reality he loves himself, he loves his own benefit in life, he loves another for the help that other gives, for his goodness, for his kindness, for his service, but in all this he surely loves himself, and it is for himself all the while he thinks he loves another.

...

The injunction given to Cupid is the injunction given to every soul, especially to the soul that has the privilege of having a loving heart, the soul that can attract others, that soul is the more responsible for this divine charge.

Blinded by love, man often gets blinded to this charge, begins to own the one he loves and to think that the purpose of love is to give and take, he says, 'I will give that I may get back from my beloved', until the time comes when the crystal-like heart is knocked against a rock and broken, and after heart-break man often falls back into despair, a few chosen, blessed ones keep on clinging to the rope of love, they know there is still a message to come, the divine spark is still there, and a flame may still rise to illumine the path through life.

Human love is given to illuminate by its sincerity the heart of another, there is no greater power to inspire than the power of love.

...

Among millions of believers in God, there is hardly one who makes God a reality, to so many He is an imagination, to many He is in a mosque, a church, or a temple. Many wonder if God is really. Many others think God is goodness, He is a personality separate from us, He is most high, most pure, most beautiful, but He is separate and difficult to reach. Many think that as it takes so long to reach this planet or that, God must be further away still. The purpose of one's whole life is to make God a reality.

...

Seek Him in all souls, good and bad, wise and foolish, attractive or unattractive, for in the depth of each there is God.

Man swimming in the sea, does not know the fish living in the sea, so we living in God do not recognize all souls living in God also. He is all around and about us at every moment, we are living His life, we are breathing His breath, and yet we are ignorant of the perfection of beauty which unites and inspires every soul."
