Thinking of God

When we devote ourselves to the thought of God, all illumination and revelation is ours. Bowl of Saki, May 10, by Hazrat Inayat Khan Commentary by Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan: The whole aim of the Sufi is, by thought of God, to cover his imperfect self even from his own eyes, and that moment when God is before him and not his own self, is the moment of perfect bliss to him.
