A path for yourself

Everyone’s path is for themselves; let them accomplish their desires that they may thus be able to rise above them to the eternal goal.
— Hazrat Inayat Khan

Commentary by Hazrat Samuel L. Lewis:

Every soul on the journey toward manifestation selects certain qualities out of the Empyrean, so to speak, which form the nexus of his later desire. This is the seed of his nature and it is through the development of personality — not its suppression — that the fulfillment of the involution and evolution is accomplished. As the very nature of desire was born out of unfulfilled love, it is not proper to crush this desire entirely — to transmute it is the right procedure.

From one point of view all desire is crushed, but from another point of view this is not so. What is necessary is to demonstrate through life itself that satisfaction cannot arise out of any particular thing, rather that satisfaction only comes from the Pleroma, the totality of thing-ness, not from the things themselves. And what is this Pleroma? It is nothing but an aspect of God, the aspect which satisfies every soul.
