Prayers have been offered, scriptures have been read, chants and hymns have been sung aloud to God, yet He seems to be as silent and as mysteriously unknown as ever.
Today a man is Hindu, tomorrow he changes to a Buddhist, day after tomorrow to a Christian Scientist, and the next day to a Catholic or a Baptist or something else. Why is this?
It is because man has believed in different faiths or opinions of men about truth and scriptural sayings but seldom analyzed them by the light of personal investigation for verifying truth by the methods used in modern science. God is not moved by prayers or praise nor by atheistical outbursts and denials of Him. He answers through law. Hit a stone with your knuckles or eat sulfuric acid and the laws of God answer. Break His law of life, and punishment and suffering comes. Think rightly, behave rightly and God answers through peace.
Hence the only way to know God is to persistently use your deepest concentration mixed with your utmost devotion in the silent hours of the night, at the break of dawn, or in the hidden glow of twilight, in demanding an answer to your prayers. Pray and use your dogged will steadily day after day, week after week, year after year until the cosmic silence of ages is broken and you find your answer. You will not have to wait for ages, for you will find in deep prayers that His Spirit of Bliss will hover around you and will talk to you through the voice of peace.
Remember the only way to know God is by persistency, regularity, and depth of loving effort.
