Letter #30, 8-5-1971
Beloved mukta,
Love. There is no proof of the Divine in the world.
For it is hidden, and hidden, and hidden.
But IN YOU there is the Absolute proof.
For it is hidden, and hidden, and hidden.
Go IN and discover it.
Thinking about it will not help.
Action is needed.
Action upon oneself.
So ACT.
That is, TURN IN.
Man is like a sealed book, written before he was born.
And ordinarily he carries it unopened inside himself until he dies.
And, one who opens it knows that he is not and only the Divine is.
