So when the door opens …



” In the life of every poet, thinker, …
artist or scientist … there come moments
… when ideas or words are given to him; …
they are given at that moment and no other.

This is the opportunity to breathe.
Man does not usually allow his soul …
to breathe; the portal is closed up in life
of the earth.
Man closes it by ignorance, he is absorbed
… in things of much less importance.
So when the door opens … and the soul is
… able to breathe even one breath, … it
becomes alive … in that one single moment,
and what comes out … is the beauty of joy
making man … express ” himself ” …

– Hazrat Inayat Khan
