By loving, forgiving, and serving,

By loving, forgiving, and serving, it is possible for your whole life to
become one single vision of the sublime beauty of God.

Bowl of Saki, October 16, by Hazrat Inayat Khan

Commentary by Hazrat Inayat Khan:

If one would realize that the world of God, His splendor and magnificence,
are to be seen in the wise and the foolish, in the good and the bad, then
one would think tolerantly and reverently of all mankind … But man has
ignored the divine spirit that manifests in humanity, and always prefers an
idol, a painting, a picture, to the living God who is constantly before
him. For the sage, the seer, the saint, and the yogi who begin to see the
master, and see him living, there is no place where he cannot be seen. Then
everywhere the beloved master is ready to answer the cry of the soul coming
from friend, father or teacher. And if we go a little further forward, we
will find that the teacher speaks aloud, not only through living beings,
but through nature. If the eyes and ears are open, the leaves of the trees
become as pages of the Bible. If the heart is alive, the whole life becomes
one single vision of His sublime beauty, speaking to us at every moment.

All occult powers belong to the divine life, but man should live a natural
life and realize the nature of God. The only studies which are worth
accomplishing are those which lead to the realization of God, and of unity
first with God and then with the self, and so with all. It is not necessary
for us to be told that we have progressed; we ourselves will know when our
hearts go forward; and by loving, forgiving, and serving, our whole life
becomes one single vision of the sublime beauty of God.
