Heart, Mind and Sanskaras – Part 4

So there exists the natural ego, the false ego and the Real Ego. Only the pure in heart can see God. This was what Purdom asked about – what being pure in heart means. Whatever I have explained will take you nowhere, because how can one explain One Whom the mind cannot grasp!

There is a bird of paradise which is said never to come on earth. Hafiz said:

“God is like the bird of paradise.
Do not try to snare Him by spreading the net of thoughts.
In that net you will find nothing but mind.
And so it is said, only love, and God will be yours.”

Not thinking (intellect), but love. So however much I may explain, God cannot be explained. But if I should wish it, in a split second you would see God and you would know.

Ramakrishna [the Sadguru of Calcutta] did not speak any language except Bengali. He could not read; he was what they call illiterate. Yet, in an instant, he gained All-Knowledge. Flocks of very literate and learned people gathered around him without understanding a thing he said!    So love!

The secret is, in a few words: when you are there, God is not. The more you use the rational mind, the less you understand. To explain and to understand, you must be there, and when you are there, God is not. So explanations and understandings mean you drive away God, instead of drawing Him in. When you understand, you have not understood!

My one and the same Beloved, it is said, appears in different guises and garbs, and with different names, and appears to be always different, yet He is one and the same Beloved.

You have to become what you already are. You are God, but you must become God. Christ humiliated himself, he had himself crucified to teach this: through love become what you already are.
