Remember that with every step you are nearing God, and God too, when you take one step towards him, he takes ten towards you. There is no stopping place in this pilgrimage, it is one continuous journey, through day and night, through valley and desert, through tears and smiles, through death and birth, through tomb and womb. When the road ends and the goal is gained, the pilgrim finds that he has travelled only from himself to himself, that the way was long and lonesome, but that the God whom he reached was all the while in him, around him, with him and beside him. He himself was always Divine. His yearning to merge in God was but the sea calling out to the ocean. Man loves because he is love! he is melody and harmony. He seeks joy, for he is joy. He thirsts for God for he is composed of God and he cannot exist without him.
