Those attached to God, aspiring for God, aware of God, adoring God have certain distinct marks by which they can be identified. Such people have a compassionate heart. If a person turns the rosary on the fingers and is intently engaged in watching the tip of their nose, unmindful of the distress that dances around them, we can at best name them a sloth, that is all. Get up, place the rosary in its bag, and activate yourselves in relieving distress - that is the true spiritual path. Do not waste all your years with stone images, pictures, or idols. Learn to see in every living, bital, active person the embodiment of all energy, all beauty, all beneficence, namely, God. God is subtler than ether, filling the smallest crevice with His majesty. Know this and serve His manifestation, wherever you meet them.
