Glimpses : Stimulating the False Ego

The following anecdote, reported by Kismet Stam, one of the Master’s secretaries, seems to be connected with one of Hazrat Inayat Khan’s journeys across the United States.

Someone told about his perilous adventures when in a small canoe he had followed the course of the Colorado river through the Grand Canyon in Arizona, along places which no human being had ever ventured to cross.

Murshid was asked whether such experiences bring man closer to his soul’s realisation.

Murshid said: “It only stimulates his false ego.”
