There is none dwelling in the house but God. When a man is awakened he
melts and perishes.

—Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi

 

The nature of being in tune with the infinite is this: comparing our soul to a string of an instrument, it is tied at both ends; one is the infinite, and the other is the finite. When a person is conscious all the time of the finite then he is tuned to the finite, while the one who is conscious of the infinite is tuned to the infinite. Being in tune with the former makes us limited, weak, hopeless, and powerless; but by being in tune with the latter we obtain the power and strength that will pull us through life in whatever adverse conditions may arise.

–From the Teachings of HAZRAT INAYAT KHAN
