The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

It is most interesting and sometimes laughable to see how easy it is for a man to fix his faith on small things, while on large things he cannot fix it: he fixes his faith on an object, not on a person. For instance, if one says to somebody, "Here is a medicine for you, a medicine that will cure you", it is easy for him to have faith. And when one says, "Well, I will think of you for your cure; you will be cured", the first thing that will come to his mind will be doubt. What is the reason? The reason is that he sees the object, he does not see the thought.
