GOD says that He is located in the form of visionary within all creatures. GOD sees all the scene from within us as a visionary. GOD says that in the form of scene outside also GOD is there. The viewer is also GOD and whatever is visible is also GOD. Therefore the scriptures, saints and devotees have seen this world as full of GOD and have rendered this fact that other than GOD there is no one in this world. After the holocaust, when GOD creates the world, He becomes many from one. Then at the time of holocaust, He again absorbs everything inside Him.

We should also acquire the vision of viewing GOD in every particle of the world.

The power to make all our senses function originates from GOD. Without the power of GOD, there is no existence of the creature. On the strength of the power of GOD, the creature operates his life.

Therefore we should be grateful to GOD because our existence is only due to GOD.

GOD says that those people who accept the worldly subjects as true pleasures of life and seek the enjoyment of the subject in their lifetime, they can never be free. They have to wander constantly through the cycle of birth and death. GOD says that the creatures should never be fascinated by the subjects available in the world. A creature can never be satisfied by enjoying the pleasure of the world. The more he enjoys, the desire to enjoy even more increases in his heart. In this way, he wastes his human life and can never be free from the cycle of birth and death.

In order that there should be no attraction of the creatures towards the subjects, the creature should undertake the devotion of GOD, so that the center of attraction always remains GOD.
