That person alone who understands the path in terms of self-offering can attune himself to God’s grace. For grace, too, is a self-offering, on God’s part, of love. By giving of oneself, the heart’s chalice becomes emptied and cleansed, making it possible thereby for God to fill it. Rays of the Same Light, by Swami Kriyananda.
