God cannot be known by the outgoing faculties, by the intellect or the vital airs called the pranas. He can be known only by the soul: like alone can know the like. When is the soul liberated? When it is analysed from mind and the outgoing faculties.
It's always better to be open-minded; leave nothing rankling in your heart. There should be no reservation, no shame, to the worst of questions. No question should be left, you see. Should there be something not clear, there's darkness. Do you think darkness will leave the room by striking its colors or beating it? A little light is required. So if you think anything has not been given – you are most welcome to ask. I haven't said anything imposing or anything like a boss. I have placed before you common-sense talks for understanding. Don't feel reserved, you see. Tell me, like the daughter comes to the father, as the son comes to the father, as the brother comes to the brother. Where's the question of reservation? Not in me.
Who has stepped into the intellectual plane must have the whys and wherefores, he must understand. He should put in all questions, clarify always, because he won't be able to take up the way unless he's intellectually satisfied, has got some proof. So it's better always to clear your heart. Don't be ashamed. Questions are of the same nature, put in a different way, that's all. Unless you go up, you cannot see. When you're near the top of the house, then you'll see little glimpses of light. When you really go up, you see full Light. So it is better for those who have entered into the intellectual plane to be satisfied. All these things need to be explained.
