(Dec. 1957) While most of the group were occupied in doing full justice to the refreshments, Baba called Amiya Hazra before him and explained:
What is God? God is neither heavy nor light in weight. He is all-pervading. He is absolutely independent. But everything depends upon Him. You have a body; it is matter. You also have energy and mind. Body, energy and mind, in a sense, all depend on breath. In sound sleep the body lies in bed; energy and mind are dormant, but breath continues, independent of all three.
Breath is not God. It is only a simile for understanding God. He is the infinite and limitless Ocean of Noor, which can only be inadequately rendered in English as “Light” or “Effulgence.” One who sees God sees nothing but God, and one who sees everything else sees the world.
There is a great difference in seeing God and becoming God. You are God, and yet you have to become God.
