The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

I heard many people say: "If my financial situation will be right for the remainder of my life, I will set to work on spiritual lines; if the money situation is all right, I will do it." I quite understand that it is necessary to think of the financial situation; it is reasonable. But at the same time, when we look at life which is passing -- this moment we have will never come again! -- when we think that we let our life pass in the pursuit of earthly things alone, and wait before looking at something higher, perhaps it will be too late. Earthly things last only as long as the life of the body lasts: in a moment it has gone. Who knows into whose hands the wealth one has collected will go.
