Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Hazrat Inayat Khan
We are apt to look at this whole creation as a mechanism, and we do not stop to think how a mechanism can exist without an engineer. What is mechanism? It is only an expression of the will of the engineer who, for his convenience made the mechanism. But as we do not see the engineer before us and only see the mechanism, we involve ourselves in the laws of working of this mechanism and forget the engineer by whose command this whole mechanism is going on. As Rumi, the great inspirer and philosopher has said in his Mathnavi 'Earth, Water, Fire, Air seem to us as things, as objects – but before God they are living beings; they stand as His obedient servants and obey divine will.
