“We take things for granted, everything for granted. That’s the only trouble with human beings, taking everything for granted. If we do not take for granted everything and just in all humility say that, ‘O Lord, we know very little about You, we’d like to know,’ He takes you up and makes you sit in His brain, so that you become aware of the powers of His brain, of His heart, from where He loves you; where He is the ocean of compassion, you become a drop in that ocean.
And you also with your waves, you jump up and down and enjoy that compassion of His, just a drop you are, but you are the ocean. This is what explains what Kabira says. You see, these great people have described him but it becomes absolutely ambiguous for you.
The human rationality cannot explain all these things. So your rationality has to improve onto vibratory awareness. You have to go through that level, minimum of minimum, to understand God. You cannot understand Him at this level. So don’t come out here with ideas that you are going to give something to God, no. You have to take, you cannot give anything to God, but in your humility, if you express yourself, He likes it.”
