The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

Once, when traveling on a ship, a young Italian came to me and said, "I only believe in eternal matter." I said, "Your belief is not very different from my belief." He was very surprised to hear a priest (he thought that I was a priest) saying such a thing. He asked, "What is your belief?" I said, "What you call eternal matter, I call eternal spirit. You call matter what I call spirit. What does it signify? It is only a difference in words. It is one Eternal." He became very interested from that time; before that he was very much afraid.
