Everyone declares himself or herself as a sadhaka (spiritual aspirant). Every believer claims that he is seeking God. One must enquire whether it is the so-called devotee who’s seeking God or whether it is God who is searching for a true devotee. Is the sadhaka serving God or is God serving the sadhaka? The service that the sadhaka is doing is trivial. Offering to God what God has provided is like offering to Ganga, water from Ganga! The truth is, it is God who is rendering service to devotees. All capabilities gifted by God should be used in the service of the Divine. There is no need to go in quest of God. God is all the time searching for the genuine and steadfast devotee. The sadhaka is approaching God for the fulfilment of his desires. He is after petty and transient benefits. He does not seek to understand the nature of true love or the Divinity that underlies everything! - Divine Discourse, Jan 13, 1984.
