Today’s Seed Thought

Adapted from Bowl of Saki, by Hazrat Inayat Khan:

Nature teaches every soul
to worship its’ own Divine
in ways and means of some kind;
and oft provides a method

that suits one and not the next.
Those who desire just one law
by which to govern all life
have lost sight of the spirit

that animates and informs
their own brand of religion.
Yet it is in such people,
who have not yet understood

their own religion’s meaning,
that ideas such as these
tend to arise frequently.
If they did but know the truth

that lives in their religion,
how tolerant they would be;
how free from holding grudges
against different dharmas!
