The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

Consider how many impressions, agreeable and disagreeable, without knowing the consequences, we partake of from morning till evening. In this way, without a person meaning to become wicked, he or she turns wicked. For, in point of fact, no one is born wicked. Although the body belongs to the earth, yet the soul belongs to God. And from above everyone has received nothing except goodness. With the wickedest person in the world, when you can touch the deepest depth of his or her being, it is nothing but goodness. Therefore if there is any such thing as wickedness or badness, it is only that someone has acquired it, and it is natural since every person is open to impressions.
