God Experience

"Will you get any milk by pressing the ears of a cow? Can you say there is milk in all parts of her body? Only her udder contains milk for us to drink, and we will get that only if we milk her. It's true that God is everywhere, but to actually experience Him we have to connect to Him through spiritual practices and sadhana."

"Not everyone who plays the lottery wins the first prize. The prize goes to one among millions. God experience is like that; only one in a million will have it."

"Worldly pleasures are like a candy that gives sweetness now, but ruins your teeth later. If you know God, you can enjoy sweetness all the time - and it is not bad for the teeth!"

Amma said: "Not everyone who plays the lottery wins the first prize. The prize goes to one among millions. God experience is like that; only one in a million will have it."

Say for example, you're in a city of a million people, and there's a disaster, like an earthquake or flood. Through great effort, you manage to escape and survive. Everyone else in the city perishes. What a sad and awful result! It matters so little that you personally have been saved, since so many others have suffered.

That's what Amma's quote is like. The "God experience" she speaks of is for a tiny tiny number of beings. What a trivial matter. How much better to focus on the experience that we all have, rather than some one-in-a-million oddity.
