God is beyond purpose.
Bowl of Saki,
by Hazrat Inayat Khan
Commentary by Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan:
Then again it may be said, there is a purpose above each purpose, and there is again a purpose under each purpose; and yet beyond and beneath all purposes there is no purpose.
The bubble is existent and yet in reality non-existent when compared with the sea.
And yet we cannot say that the bubble is non-existent, for it merges in the same sea in which it once appeared;
so nothing takes it away but its own source and its original being.
THE RESULT IS VAST SILENCE.
THE VAST SILENCE
(OR SENSE OF PURPOSE)
