5 July

indexSome people look for a beautiful place, others make a place beautiful.

Inayat Khan, born 5 July 1882, Indian mystic, founder of Universal Sufism, Sun in Cancer, Moon in Pisces, Ascendant in Aries.

There can be no rebirth without a dark night of the soul, a total annihilation of all that you believed in and thought that you were.

One is never so strong as when one is broken.

Divine sound is the cause of all manifestation. The knower of the mystery of sound knows the mystery of the whole universe.

He had fallen in love with this wild, beautiful country and everything it contained. It was the kind of love people dream of having with other people: selfless and free of doubt, reverent and everlasting.

Inside everyone is a frontier waiting to be discovered.
