The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

Therefore, when a seer or one who has realized life looks at this world, he sees that however old a person may be -- aged, young, middle-aged --- he is still like a child. Children become very unhappy because they have not got, or cannot get a toy, a toy to which grown-ups would not attach any importance. To the seer, the desires of ordinary grown-up people are also like toys. The things that matter to the world do not matter to him. This is the sign that he has realized the aim of his soul.
