The real meaning of crucifixion is to crucify the false self, that the true self may rise. As long as the false self is not crucified, the true self is not realized. Bowl of Saki, January 9, by Hazrat Inayat Khan Commentary by Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan: Those who rejoice in the joy of another, though at their own expense, have taken the first step towards true life. If we are pleased by giving another a good coat, which we would have liked to wear ourselves, if we enjoy that, we are on the first... Sign in to see full entry.

If people but knew their own religion, how tolerant they would become, and how free from any grudge against the religion of others. Bowl of Saki, January 8, by Hazrat Inayat Khan Commentary by Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan: The (limited) happiness of this world is something we cannot keep; it is just like the horizon - the nearer you go, the farther it goes.

If the soul had not known it, it could not be truth; for truth is not a knowledge, it is the very self of man.
