The Bowl of Saki Commentary (tomorrow)

Read The Bowl of Saki Commentary for today

The awakened heart says, “I must give, I must not demand.” Thus it enters a gate that leads to a constant happiness. -- Hazrat Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan

Commentary from Hazrat Murshid Samuel L. Lewis (Sufi Ahmed Murad Chisti):

Heart may not know, but soul contains all qualities, all attributes, all substances. When heart gives, it draws upon the infinite treasure of the soul but may not know that treasure to be the infinite. It is the expansion of heart which gives it life, the contraction dulls it. It is the expansion of heart which brings all joy, all harmony. It is this which comes through Zikr and Fikr when one realizes that the heart is the shrine of God, Who is All Love and Life and Light and Goodness.
