In one of the
held in the divine presence in July 2015, a devotee asked if there is a chance to see Swami in the Subtle form or should one develop the method of inner communication. Here is some of what Swami replied
It is only that the intensity of your desire to be with God is less and being with the world is more. Therefore, what you desire is what you get; that is the Law of Nature. If you want the world, you will get the world. If you want God, you will get God. The reason you don’t get God is that you still don’t want Him enough. Once your intensity is greater, I will definitely manifest. The only way to reach Me is through absolutely pure love and service. If that is not there, all the other things that you try will be like efforts which are not good enough. If you yearn for Me with that kind of hunger, that kind of thirst – like a drowning man yearns for breath – I will manifest.
Don’t think that this is something to pass your time with. You pray to God and God should appear; then you ask a few questions and then God should disappear. Then you pray again, and He appears. This should become a way of life. It is not part-time devotion; it should be a full-time effort to be in the presence of God, to feel God with you everywhere. Not only during times of difficulties, but in all times, if you pray so intensely, only to have God with you, and not to seek things from God, God will come to you. Those who ask Me for wealth, I give wealth; those who ask Me for name, I give them name; those who ask for family, I give family; those who ask Me for Myself, I give Myself. It is you who has to decide what you want. If you want nothing but only Me, I will definitely come to you.
