What is real is formless and invulnerable,
while all that appears is subject to change and dissolution.
any apparent act of volition or free-will
is merely an ineffectual and vain gesture,
and when in disaccord with the inevitable
the frustrated fluttering of a caged bird.
because there is no such thing
as an individual entity to exercise it.

The Net of Jewels
Bowl of Saki, June 9, by Hazrat Inayat Khan
The final victory in the battle of life for every soul
is when he has abandoned,
which means when he has risen above,
what once he valued most.
For the value of everything exists for man
only so long as he does not understand it.
When he has fully understood, the value is lost,
be it the lowest thing or the highest thing.
It is like looking at the scenery on the stage and taking it for a palace.
Such is the case with all things of the world;
they seem important or precious when we need them or when
we do not understand them;
as soon as the veil which keeps man from understanding is lifted,
then they are nothing.
Perhaps every person in the spiritual path must go through renunciation.
It is not really throwing things away or disconnecting ourselves from friends;
it is not taking things to heart as seriously
as one naturally does by lack of understanding.
No praise, no blame is valuable;
no pain or pleasure is of any importance.
Rise and fall are natural consequences,
so are love and hatred;
what does it matter if it be this or that?
It matters so long as we do not understand.
Renunciation is a bowl of poison no doubt,
and only the brave will drink it;
but in the end it alone proves to be nectar,
and this bravery brings one the final victory.
and willing renunciation comes
when one has risen above the thing one renounces.
The value of each thing in life
-- wealth, power, position, possession --
is according to the evolution of man.
There is a time in his life when toys are his treasures,
and there is a time when he puts them aside;
there is a time in his life when copper coins are everything to him,
and there is another time when he can give away gold coins;
there is a time in his life when he values a cottage,
and there is a time when he gives up a palace.
Things have no value;
their value is as man makes it;
and at every step in his evolution
he changes their value.
their survival instinct turns everything into a fight.
is like attaching the cart to the front of the buffalo.
Part of one's confusion is not knowing one is confused.
Why bother to know that which one doesn't need to know?
Trust that what you need to know you will come to know.
