The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

His mind, his reason, always puts forward some other cause for his unhappiness rather than the real one, in order that he may be kept in illusion all his life; in order that all his life he should run after things which are not the real aim of his soul. Throughout his whole life he seeks after things, trying first this, then that. One day he buys this, another that, and after getting these things he still thinks, "O, there is still something else, that is why I am unhappy"; and as long as he has not got it, he considers that is the cause.
