There are no limits to your being, only those you ascribe to yourself.
There are no limits to your understanding, only those that are due to trying

When we give our creative being it's proper place in our lives, we have a
sense of meaningfulness and purposefulness. The moment we touch upon this well
spring of life, a change takes place in our personality. That is the moment of
The culmination of the soul’s journey of awakening is not just returning

find you in my heart. God bless you. — Pir Vilayat lnayat Khan, Suresnes, 27 January, 2004
