Where should we seek and find God? Bhagawan lovingly guides and inspires us today.
God is inscrutable. He can’t be realised in the outer objective world; He is in the very heart of every being. Gemstones must be sought deep underground; they do not float in mid-air. Seek God in the depths of yourself, not in the tantalising, kaleidoscopic Nature. The body is granted to you for this high purpose; you are now misusing it, like the person who cooked his daily food in a gem-studded gold vase that came as an heirloom. Man extols God as omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent, but ignores His presence in himself! Of course, many venture to describe the attributes of God and proclaim Him to be such and such; these are but their own guesses and the reflections of their own predilections and preferences. Who can affirm that God is this or that? Who can affirm that God is not of this form or with this attribute? Each one acquires from the vast expanse of the ocean only as much as can be contained in the vessel he carries to the shore. From that quantity, they can grasp but little of that immensity.
