The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

A person sees that his coat is worn and poor, and he says, 'I am poor'. He sees that his coat is grand and he thinks: 'I am grand'. It is not he who is grand, it is his coat. Whatever is before the soul, the soul recognizes as 'I'. But what is 'I'? The coat is not 'I', because when the coat is taken off, the self remains. When we are not experiencing through the senses the consciousness still remains.
