No man can understand another man, including parents, spouses, children, intimate friends….
But for God, we need not to tell. He knows all our thoughts before they become actions.
We wrongly think that nobody knows our thoughts, so we keep them in our minds until when they manifest into degrading actions. And that would be too late.
When we believe that God knows, we also don’t care, for considering that God must be responsible for His omniscience. He knows, why He does not prevent us?! If God interferes, we will become like cows. This would be real loss of our precious life.
This is why man must go through divine education to know the truth. We cannot depend on God or on other people for our knowledge concerning salvation.
“Seek and ye will find.” This is the faithful promise of God.
New Addition For This Post
“In fine, that inner faculty in man, unseen of the eye, wresteth the sword from the hands of nature, and giveth it a grievous blow. All other beings, however great, are bereft of such perfections. Man hath the powers of will and understanding, but nature hath them not. Nature is constrained, man is free. Nature is bereft of understanding, man understandeth. Nature is unaware of past events, but man is aware of them. Nature forecasteth not the future; man by his discerning power seeth that which is to come. Nature hath no consciousness of itself, man knoweth about all things.”
(Abdu’l-Baha, Baha’i World Faith – Abdu’l-Baha Section, p. 339)
