One thing is true: although the teacher cannot give the knowledge, he can kindle the light if the oil is in the lamp.

The soul is either raised or cast down by the power of its own thought, speech and action. Bowl of Saki, by Hazrat Inayat Khan Commentary by Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan: One should say to the mind, 'Look here, you are my mind, you are my instrument. You are my slave and servant.

You will not think or feel differently from my... Sign in to see full entry.
