How the Wise Women make Life in the World The great Sufi Mystic, Hazrat Inayat Khan says, “The wise out of wisdom make life easy. But among the wise there are two categories, one is the Master, the other is the Saint.” (Religious Gathekas-Private Teachings, 1926).The attitude of both is quite contrary. The Saint feels inclusive sympathy with all beings and suffers and sometimes sacrifices themselves for others as they realize that those who do not have wisdom do not know how to face difficulties and therefore the Saint takes it on for them, knowing that making life easy is a great service and is what all humanity seeks.But the Master is opposite. She battles with life and meets the war within with any and all secrets of the inner mysteries of intuition that are available to her. She enters the critical arena of her own inner doubts, sorrows and sufferings and in turn shapes her personality so that she can tune the souls of those who lack harmony in their own lives.My lecture will present four women who exemplify the Saint and the Master.
