Heart with Wings


Murshida Stephanie Nuria Sabato

Meditations on The Message is a Meditation Retreat that focuses on the teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan. The classes below focus on a body of teachings on The Manner of Friendliness. The teachings are supported with supplemental readings, meditations, and breath practices, which are all aimed at the development of mastery over the limitations of one's own personality and character, and the softening of the self-cherishing ego.

Elemental Breaths & Qualities of the Elements
January 30, 2013

Play Audio (23:40 )

In the words of Hazrat Inayat Khan: All that exists lives on its own element, springs from its own element, and returns to its own element. So earth to earth, water to water, fire to fire, and air to air. Purification means to make a certain object itself; nothing added, nothing foreign attached to it which does not belong to it. These two rules make one understand the process by which the mind could be nourished and purified. The mind is nourished by thoughts and impressions that are harmonious and productive of beauty and which result in satisfaction.

The first thing in purifying the mind is to be able to discern the foreign element there. As all that is foreign to the body does not agree with the body, making it ill, so all that is foreign to the mind disturbs the peace of the mind, and it is that which proves that it does not belong to the mind: Such things as worry, anxiety, fear, sorrow, or any sort of disturbance that takes away the tranquility of the mind, preventing it from experiencing that jo
y and peace for which it longs and in which alone is its satisfaction.

Adab (Respect) (1)
February 9, 2013

In the words of Hazrat Inayat Khan: "There is no one in the world who does not deserve some respect, and he who respects another, by doing so respects himself, for respect creates respect, disrespect re-echoes in disrespect."

In the words of Hazrat Inayat Khan:

The soul with divine manner is therefore sober compared with the drunken man of the world: it is this soberness that produces in him that purity which is called Sufism, and it is through that purity that God reflects in his mirror-like soul.
