Let at least the desire to be saved sprout in you; I shall see that it grows and gives fruit, provided you yearn and try. To pour the nectar of grace, the vessel must be cleansed. Clean it and demand the nectar; do not grieve later that you missed the chance, when it had come within reach. You will not know Me in a trice, or even in days. It is something that has to be realized by stages, in due course, through discrimination, non-attachment and clear-sightedness.
(SSS Vol III – Chap 4)
