If a person who calls himself a Realised Soul feels the necessity and has the capacity, then let him go to the world to prove God’s existence.

If he has the capacity, but does not feel the necessity, then let him stay where he is.

If he neither feels the necessity nor has the capacity to show God to the world, then let him not try to prove his aspiration and demonstrate his emotion.

Why? Because God does not want him to do this.

For he is not fulfilling God in God’s way, but making a parade of himself before humanity and broadcasting himself before God. Before the world’s eye, he is undesirable. Before God’s Eye, he is unpardonable.
