The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

Will-power in man is the secret of God, and in this secret the mighty power of God is hidden. Therefore in the East, where mystical ideas are generally known, people always say, we do not know, behind this limited human form what is hidden. This makes them respect and consider what is hidden in every person they meet. Hafiz says, "Do not let yourself be fooled by the patched sleeve of the dervish, you do not know if under this patched sleeve a mighty arm is not hidden." What we call miracle is the outcome of the same power, except that what is above human limitation cannot be called natural, it is supernatural.
