Hazrat Inayat Kahn, John Claypool, soul, and the mysterious Kingdom of God

excerpted from THE WAY OF WONDER: a return to the mystery of ourselves, by Jack Haas




“It is the study of self which is really the study of God. ...[And] every soul has in himself a Kingdom of God. To become conscious of this mystery of life is to open one’s eyes to the kingdom of God.”

Hazrat Inayat Kahn



           Absolute wonderment, then, is simply a person’s realized relationship to a suddenly recognized unfathomableness- their own unfathomable Self.

As John Claypool remarks, “Several years ago I came across the phrase, ‘the mystery that is every man.’ From the moment I saw it I liked it, because it reminds me of a fact about every person who has ever lived- that everyone is a dynamic, mysterious reality...”

All we need to do is be aware of ourselves completely; to be ‘open’ and not closed off by preconceptions or desires about who we are or want to be. We must simply be, and finally we shall see ourselves truly- as miracles now and always.

           It is only through our de-finitions of ourselves that we become finite, definable fragments, separated from the glorious One. By undefining ourselves and everything, we then become intimate with, and not separate from, the unfathomable whole.
