The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

Spirituality is contrary to materiality. One who is conscious of matter alone is material, one who becomes conscious of spirit also is spiritual. He who thinks, "I am my body," and sees no further, is material. He may as well say, "I am my coat," and when the coat is worn out he may say, "I am dead." The one who is conscious of the spirit, to him his body is a coat, and as by taking off one's coat one does not die, so even by the death of this body the spirit-realized soul does not die.
