There are many virtues, but there is one principal virtue. Every moment passed outside the presence of God is sin, and every moment in His presence is virtue. The whole object of the Sufi, after learning this way of communicating is to arrive at a stage where every moment of our life passes in communion with God, and where our every action is done as if God were before us. Is that within everyone's reach? We are meant to be so. Just think of a person who is in love: when he eats or drinks, whatever he does, the image of the beloved is there. In the same way, when the love of God has come, it is natural to think of God in everything we do.

My dear friend said to me,
"You must win her heart."
And I think, so it is with God.

A good question to ask daily... How can I win the heart of God? The All Powerful.

As perfectly imperfect creatures, you can Honor his Creation... Love, to the best of your ability and give thanks... Hope, always nourish hope... As Inayat Khan says, "hope is the only food of life" and for the thinking man "it is hope that is sweet not the object." Reach within for the sake of Peace, Inspiration and practice Faith in yourself and with others...

Be Blessed!

That is congenial. Ingenious. Some have named it 'science', even... Smiley

dear steve,
i tried to write out my understanding of this expression, so that i may better explain than what i could do on the phone. in short, in order to make god a reality, lovingly trust he is ultimately in control. the phrase is, "let go and let god."

so here it is friend...

"Man mistakes when he begins to cultivate the heart by wanting to sow the seed himself, instead of leaving the sowing to God."
-Bowl of Saki, October 29, by Hazrat Inayat Khan

My understanding of this message is...

From your awakening to now, you will find one of the most important qualities to develop to be your Heart. I have found, in the process, that my expectations and desires have lead to much suffering. The Heart and the Ego have a way of working that you might expect a level of reciprocity from any given circumstance. You might find this to be common knowledge. It is, it is the way of this world which is why it is also so difficult. I felt compelled to share, given that my falls often leave me with a heavy heart. In times of difficulty, continue to cultivate the Heart qualities but do not expect reciprocity or seek to control conditions. Still more God as a creator of Life, understands the plight of ego-consciousness as it develops in a world governed by the laws of nature- his laws, his worlds- what God has in store for each of us on this path of seeking has to be far greater than what our limited selves can presently comprehend. Remember the grandeur of the creator and the marvel of discovery, realize the limited self when things seem to be going awry and have Faith that the developing Heart qualities are not going unnoticed. Hope, a most beautiful transcending philosophy, has to be maintained during our difficult times. Do not shut your heart when you are hurt but continue to develop your practice and share the qualities you believe in, have Faith that God has a plan for you and things will be revealed.
