God-realization is the endless end of creation and the timeless consummation and fructification of intelligent and nonbinding karma. Souls who have not realized God are still in the domain of duality, and their dealings of mutual give-and-take in different fields create the chains of karmic debts and dues from which there is no escape.

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.
