As a matter of fact, all of us are like beggars at the Master’s door, having a begging bowl in hand which the Master readily fills. But when the bowl is already full with things other than spirituality, the question of getting anything from Him does not arise at all, for anything poured into it will flow out at once. The primary thing for us to do is, therefore, to make ourselves empty of all these so that it may be filled up with Master’s grace.
