(Nov. 1962) On the path, cowards have no place. Hafiz said that when he became a lover of God, he thought he had got a grip over the “Pearl.” But he never dreamt of the depth of the Ocean and the dangers to be faced from storms and waves!
Guru Nanak once said: “O God, no one can know Your Beginning, nor fathom Your End!”
I am that Infinite God! I am God, and yet I cannot fathom my Self! All these infinitely varied things came out of me. Once, I thought of seeing all that I had created with my physical eyes. I tried to count all the things, but even I failed to fathom my endlessness! The wonder is that everything is within you, and yet you cannot see it. The Infinite is within you, and not in space. God is infinite. You are drops in that Infinite Ocean. When knowledge dawns, you know everything.
The true lover of God, in his intense love, is continually experiencing a burning, an intense burning for union with God. Such a lover is in agony. But he must not complain to his Beloved about his agonies. He should remain cheerful. As soon as he complains, he loses all that he had silently treasured.
