I woke to find myself in a dark wood,
where the right road was wholly lost and gone.
Dante in the Divine Comedy
seeking its own fullest incarnation
and that whenever we serve the mystery within us;
we experience a linkage to the mystery outside.
When we stand in conscious relationship to the mystery
we are more deeply alive.

Kahil Gibran in The Prophet
Let the beauty we love be what we do,
there are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.

We find God in that which enlivens the soul.
Simply say hello.
I can’t explain the goings and the comings.
You enter suddenly and I am nowhere again inside the majesty.

(I am not sure if I said this
or read it somewhere.)
The dynamic connection of the soul through the image manifests this energy.
we are in the presence of soul.
When, for whatever reason
the energy no longer enlivens that image for us,
then that structure dies for us as a source of the divine….
The energy has departed leaving a dry husk.
For laughing and passion – beauty and joy – is our hearts truth.
All else is labour and foreign to the soul.

It is the glorious sound of a soul waking up.”

Commentary by Hazrat Inayat Khan:
It is useless to discuss the peace of the world. What is necessary just now is to create peace in ourselves that we, ourselves, become examples of love, harmony and peace. That is the only way of saving the world and ourselves.
It is not dependent upon the outer sensation.
It is something that belongs to one,
something that is one's own self. ...
Peace is not a knowledge, peace is not a power,
peace is not a happiness, but peace is all these.
And besides, peace is productive of happiness.
Peace inspires one with knowledge of the seen and unseen,
and in peace is to be found the divine Presence.
It is not the excited one who conquers in this continual battle of life.
It is the peaceful one who tolerates all, who forgives all,
who understands all, who assimilates all things.
the property of this earth or quality of mind,
is poor even with both.
He has not got that wealth which may be called divine
and without which man's life is useless.
For true life is in peace,
a life which will not be robbed by death.
all is to be attained after the attainment of peace.
You cannot refuse to recognize the divine in a person who is a person of peace.
It is not the talkative, it is not the argumentative one, who proves to be wise.
He may have intellect, worldly wisdom,
and yet may not have pure intelligence, which is real wisdom.
True wisdom is to be found in the peaceful,
for peacefulness is the sign of wisdom.
It is peace that gives him the power to observe keenly.
It is the peaceful one, therefore, who can conceive,
for peace helps him to conceive.
It is the peaceful who can contemplate;
one who has no peace cannot contemplate properly.
Therefore, all things pertaining to spiritual progress in life depend upon peace.
The answer is, love of sensation.
A person who is always seeking to experience life in movement,
in activity, in whatever form, wants more and more of that experience.
In the end he becomes dependent upon the life which is outside,
and so he loses in the end his peace, the peace which is his real self.
... the first thing is to seek the kingdom of God within ourselves,
in which there is our peace.
As soon as we have found that, we have found our support,
we have found our self.
And in spite of all the activity and movement on the surface,
we shall be able to keep that peace undisturbed
if only we hold it fast by becoming conscious of it.
that is perfect which is complete in all its aspects,
balanced in each direction and under complete control of the will.
