It is all God's will ...

It is God who, by the hand of man, designs and carries out His intended plans in nature.
                        Bowl of Saki, August 12, by Hazrat Inayat Khan
Commentary by Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan:
First we must understand what the word divine means. Divine means: in a state of perfection. This state is experienced by God through man. In other words, when man has risen to the stage of development where he can be the perfect instrument of God, when nothing of his own being stands in the way of the direct impulse that comes from within -- that spirit may be called perfect. That which is most precious, that which is the purpose of man's life is to arrive at that state of perfection when he can be the perfect instrument of God.
