A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother"
(available at all Vedanta Centres)
"Mother, when one speaks of seeing God," I said, "does one mean realizing absolute knowledge? Or is it something else?"
"No, what else can it mean? Do you think one grew two horns?"
"Many of the disciples here mean something else," I said, "they mean actually seeing Him, speaking to Him."
"They keep saying, 'Show us the Father, show us the Father'. He is nobody's father in any such sense. When they spoke of guru, Master, Father, he (the Master) seemed to be pierced with thorns. So many sages have meditated and prayed through the ages without finding Him (God), and these people would find Him without any meditation or prayer! No, I can't do it! Tell me, did he (the Master) ever do it for anybody/"
I asked, "Well, Mother, some people seek Him but never find Him. Whereas others do not seek Him but He gives Himself unto them. Why is it so?"
"God is like a child, you know. He denies some who seek and of Himself gives to some who do not. Perhaps such people had highly evolved souls from their previous lives. That is why they receive His grace."
