Your work in life must be your religion, whatever your occupation may be.
Bowl of Saki, October 19, by Hazrat Inayat Khan
Commentary by Hazrat Inayat Khan:
The purpose of life is to become more living, to allow the soul to live
more, and that is the limit given by Christ when he says, ‘Raise your light
high’. This means allowing the soul to express itself. It does not matter
what your life is, what your pursuit is; in order to fulfill the purpose of
life you need not be in a temple or a church. Whatever your life’s pursuit
— art, poetry, sculpture, music, whatever your occupation may be — you
can be as spiritual as a priest or clergyman, always living a life of
praise. Your work in life must be your religion; let the soul express
itself in every aspect and it will surely fulfill the purpose of life. The
soul’s life comes naturally if we open ourselves for the spirit to rise.
