Why does God want you to know Him? Because He wants to see His reflection on you .That is why He has created you and He wants to see His reflection in you. Same with the Goddess, She has given you Self-realization because She wants to see Her reflection in you. So you have to prepare yourself for that reflection, which is so much purer, beautiful, loving, compassionate, and above all full of wisdom.
H.H.Shri Mataji, Canajoharie, New York, 2000
