This is taken from a play, which relays the wisdom of Hazrat Inayat Khan and is worth reading in its entirety.

In this scene we have chelas waiting for their guru contemplating about matters of life, questioning their practices and judging their beloved teacher. When the sage arrives they ask him all manner of question and the sage responds as matter of fact often disappointing the chelas of no fault his own and, by the end of the scene the police arrive to arrest the sage under the false conviction of a murder. Some chelas are quick to judge based on what they are witnessing while one feels the need to go and be with his guru. Before his arrival a chela makes a very interesting observation about the Guru.

Why do I find this so fascinating? Because it is from Inayat Khan himself and by describing the guru, he is teaching us how to see God behind the flow of life and its many forms(You and I).

It reads,
FIRST CHELA. The ways of the Guru are many, each subtle and incomprehensible. His moral conceptions, his philosophical thoughts, his lofty ideals, his realization of God, his wide horizon of vision, and the flight of his consciousness in the higher spheres, all these cannot be put into words. He notices all things, whether he sees them or not; he feels all conditions, whether he knows them or not. He gives a bitter pill to one, and a delicious sweet to another. He looks at one and thinks of another; he teaches one in words and the other in silence; he speaks to one and inspires another by his piercing glance. It is all his love, whether it comes in the form of heavy rain or bright sunshine.
