“You cannot pay for God, that’s one thing that way everywhere they take money. I mean there is no place where they do not sell God, I am yet to come across were people do not take money but really you cannot pay for God. God doesn’t understand money. He doesn’t understand. It is all your own doing, money this business and all that, it’s your own. For God, love is everything. He loves you. That’s why He has created you.
He loves you that’s why He wants you to have Realization and to achieve that consciousness by which that you know Him, that personality by which you flow His powers through you that you are empowered to feel His power flowing through you. So you cannot put in any effort either because what effort can you put in for a living thing? For example, there is a seed, the seed has to grow. It grows spontaneously.
You cannot make it grow. You cannot – stand on your head and say now the seed has to grow, as soon as you put the seed in the Mother Earth She just sprouts the seed. It’s all built in it. In the same way the whole thing is built in us and the whole thing is like this in a subtle way within us built. Now these subtle centers give rise to the gross sub plexuses within us which work out all the physical side and also mental side. When the whole thing take place, automatically as a by product you will feel better physically, mentally, emotionally.”
