REMOVE THE UMBRELLA

Meher Baba

 
In actuality, God is not far from the seeker, nor is it impossible to see Him. He is like the sun, which is ever shining right above you.

It is you who have held over your head the umbrella of your variegated mental impressions which hide Him from your view. You have only to remove the umbrella and the Sun is there for you to see. It does not have to be brought there from anywhere.

But such a tiny and trivial thing as an umbrella can deprive you of the sight of such a stupendous fact as the Sun.
