Now I want to say a few words about love for God. God is to be loved, and not studied. God is to be loved, and not argued about. God is beyond intellect, so intellect can neither see Him nor understand Him. Only the heart can approach the threshold of the Beloved. Therefore, even the poorest of beings and the most illiterate can all find God within their selves through love. This love demands no riches, no powers, no fame, no learning and no ceremonies. We have to love God as our Beloved, and this love must be so intense that, just as we cannot live without air, we should not be able to live without God – the love of God.
So, even the poorest and most illiterate ones should know that they have an equal right to know God through love, just as intellectual giants have. And you must also know that in everyday life, too, God can be loved. If you attend to all worldly duties, keeping yourselves detached and dedicating the results to God, you are loving Him.
God can be loved and seen just as you see gross things. So, be hopeful of life because we are all meant to love God, and see Him within ourselves. And I give you my blessing for this love so that some one of you may be worthy of loving God. And I want to stress this point, that we are all One. In spite of our suffering, poverty and helplessness, we are in God. I give you all my love.
