“The paths leading man to god or Truth are said to be many. I will speak only of the shortest. It is to recognize God as the Self in you and then to find Him out. What is the distance then between you and God, between you and yourself? Ah, there is no distance at all, a full Zero! Yet, how dare you say to find God and Truth is hard?’’

Question : With pranams swamiji, may I ask you where is your position in spirituality? Please excuse me if this is a senseless question. Thank you.

Answer :

Dear and blessed daughter R: 

Harih Om Tat Sat.  Your email of 8 Sep. is before me and I am reading it again.

I wonder what you mean by your question. Good behaviour prevents us from saying anything that would appear to be a claim, self-conceit or the like. Nevertheless, an earnest seeker will certainly want to know whom he or she is with.

With reservation let me speak:  Inner personality of a seeker will not be at rest, unless the mind’s and intelligence’s needs are met, fulfilled. Mind craves for peace and joy; intelligence for wisdom. Result will be ego sublimation, effacement.  That makes one full and complete. A genuine seeker cannot rest unless his quest is fulfilled.  No concealing is possible here.  A flame cannot deny that it is bright and it illumines.

I am a fulfilled person.  My body does its tasks, mind and intelligence do theirs, but in reality I do nothing.  This is said to be the fulfillmental note in true spirituality, the last!

The question is very relevant.  Some have to raise it, mostly seekers get to feel the answer without asking explicitly.

Very good.

Love and aashirvaad.
