God draws the individual towards itself; it is the nature of both to have this affinity, for they are the same. They are like the iron and the magnet. But, if the iron is rusty, covered with layers of dirt, the magnet is unable to attack. Remove the impediment; that is all you have to do. Shine forth in your real nature and the Lord will draw you into His bosom. Trials and tribulations are the means by which this cleansing is done.
