” Life has always seemed to me
Like a plant that lives on its
Rhizome. Its true life is invisible, hidden in the rhizome.
The part that appears above ground
Lasts only a single summer.
Then it withers away–an ephemeral apparition.
When we think of the unending growth and decay and life and civilization,
We cannot escape the impression of absolute nullity.
Yet I have never lost a sense of something that lives and endures
Underneath the eternal flux.
What we see is the blossom, which passes, the rhizome remains.”
“The soul of the whole of creation is one, the life behind all these ever-moving phantoms is one. Meditation on this truth and the awakening to it will harmonize the condition of the World.”
Hazrat Inayat Khan
