New Plagiarism Excerpt:

FLUTE OF GOD (Chapter 6, as it appeared in ORION): pages 43 and 44
by Paul Twitchell and copyrighted in 1967

compare with

THE MYSTICISM OF SOUND by Hazrat Inayat Khan, pages 64-65 (original
copyright date 1923)

Here we go:

Hazrat Inayat Khan writes:

"The Supreme Being has been called by various names in different
languages, but the mystics have known him as HU. . . the only name
of the Nameless. . . The word Hu is the spirit of all sounds and of
all words, and is hidden within them all, as the spirit in the body.
It does not belong to any language, but no language can help
belonging to it. This alone is the true name of God, a name that no
people and no religion can claim as their own."


Paul Twitchell writes:

"The Supreme has been called various names in different languages,
but is known to those who recognize the real wisdom as HU, the name
of the nameless one. The word HU is the spirit of all sounds and of
all words, and is hidden under them all, as the spirit of soul. It
does not belong to any language, but no language can help belonging
to it. This alone is the true name of God, a name that no people and
no religion can claim as their own."


(Sider bar note: This is just a glimpse of that purloined section.
Notice how the last few sentences are almost identical.)
