‘I‘ Should Go

A sincere devotee knocked on the door of God’s mansion.

“Who is it?” came the voice from within.


The devotee answered, “It is ME.”


The door remained shut.


The devotee returned home and performed a severe penance for many years. He gained great spiritual knowledge.


The devotee once again knocked on the door of God’s mansion.


The same voice , the same question came from within,  “who is it ?”


The devotee answered, “It is YOU.”


The door opened and the devotee was blessed with the vision of God.


One can see God when the sense of ‘I’ or ego departs and the sense of You or God enlightens and engulfs us.
