The soul of all is one soul, and the truth is one truth, under whatever religion it is hidden. -- Hazrat Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan

Commentary from Hazrat Murshid Samuel L. Lewis (Sufi Ahmed Murad Chisti):

Ishk (or love) unites one to another. One does not regard the fingers as having any reality apart from the body. So the life in us is that which unites us to another. Life is impossible without holding some relation to plant, animal, or human. We are all interdependent, showing that the reality in us is greater than any conception we may hold. Without Ishk we would not be.

Yet Ishk is force, not personality, and it is not dependent upon personality. That person which is the source of Ishk is none other than God or Allah or Brahman or Dharmakaya.

This knowledge is vouchsafed to no person so long as that one is considered apart from all others.
