God is just knocking on your door. God is always close by. The idea that God is far away in the heavens is just stupidity. He is in your very breath . . . he is your breath! We just have to understand who we are, and in that very understanding we come to know what God is. And except for that there is no other way to know God.
Understanding oneself becomes the knowledge of God. So the only religious question is ‘Who am l?’ Never ask what God is; just ask ‘Who am I?’ Search for the answer, and never believe in the answers that are given by others. No borrowed answer can be of any help; each person has to come to his own answer. Each person is carrying the answer within him; one just has to dig.
