All meditation and
contemplation are taught with this purpose:
to harmonize one’s innermost being with
God, so that God is seeing, hearing, thinking
through us and our being is a ray of God’s
light. In that way we are even closer to God
than the fishes are to the ocean in which they
have their being.
~Hazrat Inayat Khan
