HE SEES HIMSELF IN EVERYONE
The Man-God [Sadguru, Perfect Master], however, dwells in the consciousness of unity; and all that he does, not only does not bind him, but contributes toward the emancipation of others who are still in ignorance. For the Man-God there is no one who is excluded from his own being. He sees himself in everyone; and since all that he does springs from the consciousness of nonduality, he can freely give and freely take without creating bindings for himself or others.
If a person accepts without reserve from the bounty the Man-God showers, he creates a link that will stand by him until he attains Freedom and God-realization. If a person serves the Man-God, offering his life and all possessions in his service, he creates a link that will augment his spiritual progress by inviting upon himself the grace and help of the Man-God.
In fact, even opposition to the work of the Man-God often turns
out to be a beginning of development that imperceptibly leads a
person Godward, because while opposing the work of the Man-God, the
soul is establishing a link and a contact with him. Thus everyone
who voluntarily or involuntarily comes into the orbit of his
activities becomes, in some way, the recipient of a spiritual push.
