Everything that exists is God


GuruShishya

 

The Master said: ‘Everything that exists is God.’ The pupil understood it literally, but not in the true spirit. While he was passing through a street, he met with an elephant. The driver (mâhut) shouted aloud from his high place, ‘Move away, move away!’ The pupil argued in his mind, ‘Why should I move away? I am God, so is the elephant also God. What fear has God of Himself?’ Thinking thus he did not move. At last the elephant took him up by his trunk, and dashed him aside. He was severely hurt, and going back to his Master, he related the whole adventure. The Master said, ‘All right, you are God. The elephant is God also, but God in the shape of the elephant-driver was warning you also from above. Why did you not pay heed to his warnings?’
