The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

The Sufi says, Ishk Allah, Ma'bud Lillah - "God is love and Beloved." This word love we have so altered, so degraded in our ordinary life. We say, "I love you, because you love me. I am your friend, your well-wisher, because you are my friend and well-wisher." This friendship lasts a short time and then it is gone. It is as if we say: "I like this flower because it is beautiful", and when its beauty is gone, it is thrown away.
