The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

This opens the door to another mystery of life which shows that as there is duality in each thing, so there is duality in every action. In everything that is just, something unjust is hidden; and in everything that is bad, something good; and then one begins to see how the world reacts to all one's actions: one person sees only the good and another only the bad. In Sufi terms this particular attitude is called Hairat, bewilderment; and while to the average man theaters, moving pictures, and bazaars are interesting, so to the Sufi the whole of life is interesting, a constant vision of bewilderment. He cannot explain this to the world, because there are no words to explain it.
