The fact is that the necessary preparedness is lacking

Of course, only God alone is real. Everything else is in God. We are one with Him, but due to ignorance, we experience separation. But this separation, in turn, is necessary to realize our Oneness with Him. Now, because we are already one with this Swayambhu [automatic] Knowledge, it cannot be given by God. Once this Knowledge of God, which is Swayambhu individualized, is gained, one can impart that Knowledge to anyone. Dnyan is already there in everyone, but who is to give it? For that reason, a Sadguru is necessary.

But a Sadguru will not give it to just anyone. He cannot give it to one who has not annihilated himself completely. He gives it to one who has surrendered himself 100 percent, or to one who has a very, very close or deep connection with him. Sadgurus can give this Knowledge in a second.

But one who wants this Knowledge must have the necessary preparedness. Only then, the Sadguru gives help. He does not give this Knowledge to those who are unprepared; for, in their case, it would be like throwing pearls before swine. That has been the law.

… Dnyan always comes unawares. God is so kind that it is impossible to imagine His unbounded kindness! Some think they have suffered a lot, and still God is not showering His grace on them. But the fact is that the necessary preparedness is lacking. Hafiz said:

One tip of a strand of hair is in my hand, the other in the hand of the Friend.
Our tug of war has been going on for years.

But when the appointed time comes, and the necessary preparedness is there, then Dnyan comes, irrespective of what the individual is doing at that moment., p3141
