A Quote by Hazrat Inayat Khan on god, soul, and non duality

We are always searching for God afar off, when all the while He is nearer to us than our own soul.

A Quote by Hazrat Inayat Khan

Concentration and contemplation are great things; but no contemplation is greater than the life we have about us every day.

A Quote by Hazrat Inayat Khan on self-denial, renunciation, soul, god, and greatest goal

SUFI TEACHINGS

To be resigned means to find satisfaction in self-denial (Self-denial is the denial of one’s lower self.).

Resignation is a quality of the saintly souls.

The highest and greatest goal that every soul has to reach is God. As everything needs renunciation, that highest goal needs the highest renunciation.

… The wise in all ages… have tried to learn one thing only, and that was resignation to the Will of God. By doing this, they have reached a stage at which they could see from God’s point of view.

A Quote by Hazrat Inayat Khan on life, harmony, wisdom, love, and law

Life is a place where it is necessary to move gently. Whether it be in thought, speech, or action, the rhythm must be controlled; the law of harmony must be observed in all that one does.

If there is anything that will bring satisfaction it is diving deep into Love, and then we shall realize that there is nothing which is not just; we shall never again say that anything is unjust. This is the point the wise reach, and they call it the culmination of wisdom.

A Quote by Hazrat Inayat Khan on sufism

in

There was a wall in a village that existed for ages, and many tried to climb it but few succeeded. Those who had climbed it saw something beyond, smiled, climbed over the wall and never returned. The people of the town began to wonder what magic could be there and what attraction, that whoever climbed over the wall never returned. So they said, “We must send someone who can reach the top, but we must tie him with a rope to hold him back.” When the man they had sent reached the top of the wall, he smiled and tried to jump over it, but they pulled him back. When the people asked, “What did you see there?” he could not answer, he could only smile.

A Quote by Hazrat Inayat Khan on evolution, development, sufi, and sufi message

How can one explain spiritual progress? What is it? What is it like? Spiritual progress is the changing of the point of view.

A Quote by Hazrat Inayat Khan on soul and harmony

Now if I do anything it is to tune souls instead of instruments. To harmonize people instead of notes. If there is anything in my philosophy, it is the law of harmony: that one must put oneself in harmony with oneself and with others.

A Quote by Hazrat Inayat Khan on music, melody, harmony, and sound

I have found in every word a certain musical value, a melody in every thought, harmony in every feeling, and I have tried to interpret the same things with clear and simple words to those who used to listen to my music.

A Quote by Hazrat Inayat Khan on god, sacrifice, and music

I gave up my music because I had received from it all I had to receive. To serve God one must sacrifice the dearest thing, and I sacrificed my music, the dearest thing to me.

A Quote by Hazrat Inayat Khan on song and music

in

I had composed songs, I sang, and played the vina. Practising this music I arrived at a stage where I touched the music of the spheres. Then every soul became a musical note, and all life became music. Inspired by it I spoke to the people, and those who were attracted by my words listened to them instead of listening to my songs.
