Hazrat Inayat on ‘The Fire I Have Lighted’

Hzt Inayat staffKeep burning the fire I have lighted.
It may seem very small to you,
but one tiny flame, if kept burning,
can be the means of illuminating a whole city,
and someday many lamps that shall be lighted at this small fire
will give light to thousands.
This fire of truth is now lighted, and its light will never go out.
Your work is to tend it and keep it burning.
The fuel needed is your every thought, your faith, your prayers, and your sacrifices.
You cannot see the result of this.
Light can never be lost.
I have kindled this small fire from which millions of lamps can be lit.
Their number cannot be reckoned, and millions upon millions of other fires can now be lighted.
When all have been kindled the original fire will die out, and the place thereof be known no more.
Verily the form dieth, and the spirit liveth for ever.
God bless you.
