Desire for God
The highest form of desire is when it is transformed into a spiritual form of the universalised consciousness. This is seen in saints and sages of all countries who do not make a distinction between God and the World. Their enjoyments and their sufferings are not theirs, they are of the universe, they have a universal body, for all that they see is the illustration of God. They eat and rejoice and seem to have the normal enjoyments of a human being, but their minds are lifted above the realm of personality and the mire of the earthward pull. These are the great saviours, the incarnations, the Spiritual masters and the guides of humanity in its spiritual quest.
Such personalities look like any one else outwardly – they have a body, they have their personal and social lives, they are sometimes householders with large families, they play and talk and laugh and eat and drink and bathe. Yes; but their minds are differently constituted.But they have all equal knowledge and the power to create, destroy or transform things at their will(Kartum akartum anyatha va kartum saktah).

It has ceased to be an externalising tendency and is once and for all consumed in the blaze of the light of the Absolute.
There are Sadhakas, who have been affected by this ‘infirmity’ of Spirit, and cannot again be brought round to view life in a different way. The logic of the heart is more weighty than that of the intellect. And no force under the sun can have the courage to face its penetrating influence. Such is the nature of what the spiritual aspirant sees with an eye that is peculiar to him, an eye which animates from within the eyes with which he sees the world outside.
Rarely does a person get inspired up by a spiritual aspiration. We studiedly use the term inspired because it is often in this manner that the spiritual ideal seems to beckon the human mind. It does not come with long discussions and premeditations, correspondence and notice. It wells up within, one does not know how and when. And when this happens one’s perspective of things suddenly changes, and there is altogether a different psychological world created before one’s eyes. No persuasion or argumentation will succeed in diverting a person away from this changed view of things, once this inspiration catches him. It is indeed a blazing, all-consuming power, and nothing on earth can have the strength to resist it.Hence one should always
