THE HEART BEGINS TO KNOW HIM

Mani S. Irani

 
How right you are when you say Baba is the answer to all questions — it makes everything fall into place and you know where you are. Trying to understand Him just through books or discourses is not enough.

As Baba said, do not "learn" God, just "yearn" God.

I know what you mean by the need for expression — just as God speaks through every grain of his creation, the lover must speak through some aspect of His beauty when the Awakener awakens him, and so starts the journey to the Beloved: the heart begins to know Him as "there is none like Him," and ends knowing "there is none but Him."
