Life is a continual series of experiences, one leading to the other, until the soul arrives at its destination.
Bowl of Saki, August 5, by Hazrat Inayat Khan
Commentary by Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan:
The truth is to be realized from all things, from religion, from
philosophy, from science, from art, from industry. The only difference
is that one takes a shorter way and the other takes a longer way. One
goes round about and the other takes a straight path. There is no
difference in the destination; the only difference is in the journey,
whether one goes on foot or whether one drives, whether one is awake or
whether one is asleep and is taken blindly to the destination, not
knowing the beauties of the way.
