The Perfect Master can not only show you what God is, but he can also lead you to the Goal of attaining complete Union with him. But this does not mean that the seeker should, time and again, pester the Master with his pressing demand, "Show God to me!" The desire to see God and realize Him is all right. But to imagine that God can be shown or seen like some object in the cinema is to falsify the real search. You cannot see God without rising to the necessary mental state. The nothingness and emptiness of the gross world has to be thoroughly realized before one can get a glimpse into the nature of God. There is absolutely no use in putting the cart before the horse. The immediate objective of the aspirant should be to struggle with those psychic limitations which bind him to the false. God will automatically make His appearance when the blinders — which man has fastened upon his own mind - are removed.
In fact, God is not very far at all from the seeker. Nor is it really very difficult to see Him. He is like the Sun, which is always shining right above your own head. But you yourself have held on 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 already there for you to see. He doesn't have to be brought from anywhere. But such a tiny and trivial thing like an umbrella can deprive you of the sight of such a stupendous fact as the Sun. Impressions are like this umbrella. Though they might seem to be insignificant in themselves, they create a curtain between you and God. The Perfect Master helps you to remove these impressions: and when this curtain is removed, you are face to face with God as Truth.
It is never possible to give a purely intellectual proof for the existence of God. Any arguments which appear merely to the intellect will have a tendency to induce belief in God. But they can never be absolutely convincing. How can that, which is really above the intellect, be brought within the domain of the intellect? To ask for a purely intellectual proof for the existence of God is like asking for the privilege of being able to see with the ears. Ears can only hear. They cannot see. In order to be able to see, you have to make use of your eyes. If you close your eyes tightly and clamour that your ears may be given the sight of things, how can any one help you in the fulfillment of such an absurd demand? And yet, it is this very absurdity in which the so-called 'educated' get trapped. They want an intellectual proof for God as if God could be known through the use of bare intellect, howsoever keen.
The fact is that these intellectuals are not at all interested in God. They are only keen about argument and their own vanity. If they really wanted to know God, they would pay the price for that knowledge. They would forthwith renounce
