The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

A part of your time should be given to solitude. The more you cultivate solitude, the more you will like it, but when very much time is spent in solitude, people become unbalanced. The madzubs in India are very great people, often they are Nabi or Qutub. They attain a very high degree of spirituality, they have control over the elements, but part of their power, as the world demands it of them, is lost to the external world. I think that it is most desirable to be well-balanced: to spend so much time with others, and so much time in solitude.
