Symbols of the world's religions



Eruch Jessawala

23 July 1981

Those who at long last come to the Threshold of the Divine Beloved with an open heart — unclouded by any expectations material or spiritual — are the ones who receive the full measure of His Silent Giving. His Grace, His Mercy, and His Bounty fulfill and fill-full, even before the need or the occasion arises. His love for us surpasses all understanding and tolerance, in spite of our ignorant insistence on being what we are!

I am not surprised when you say how much this trip means to you. It is He who has sought you even before the beginning of all beginnings, and it is He who eternally awaits patiently 'round the corner,' seeking your glance of recognition. By His Grace, let your eyes not wander in walking this illusion's street, enamoured by the fleeting glitter or distracted by glamour, but eagerly pursue Him, knowing for certain that at the end of the lane awaits the Beloved with open arms.

To love Him is easier said than done, as that alone is what He wants of us. Besides, there is a relentless onslaught of the nature of the self to be wrestled with at every breath, as well as the things of the world that tug with an insurmountable pull.

In life's living, there is naught else but to seek His Grace — the Divine Gift of His Love — by letting every thought, word and deed be controlled by constant remembrance of God.
