INTELLECTUAL READING IS NOT NECESSARY
In spite of so many books, such as 'God Speaks,' 'Listen Humanity,' 'Life at its Best' etc. love for Me need not read anything. Reading is not necessary for those who love... love take one beyond the intellect and beyond the mind. I have been saying authoritatively to the world that I am the ancient one. Love Me. If you love Me with all your heart, then you shall be free.
Books and discourses will not bring about one's spiritual regeneration. Mind cannot be annihilated by mind, for one cannot jump over oneself. Only by loving Me as I ought to be loved can the mind be destroyed. Anyone may have love for Me, but not the love as I want.
In spite of all explanations and reading of books, words remain mere words. They do not take one any further than intellectual satisfaction. Only love for God works the miracle, because love is beyond mind and reason. Where then is the necessity to read?
