"Spirituality is a matter of pure self-analysis, rising above the body-consciousness.
To know God at the level of feelings or drawing inferences are subject to error.
Seeing is above all."
Manbody is the highest in all creation. It is an golden opportunity we have got, because in this manbody alone we can know God. And to know God we have to know ourselves first. Because God cannot be known by the outgoing faculties, by the mind or intellect. With the intellect we only try to grasp certain things. It is the soul alone that can know the oversoul, because soul is of the same essence as that of God. God is All-Consciousness and our soul is a drop of the ocean of All-Consciousness.
So to know God we will have to know ourselves first. Like knows the like.
