As long as a man feels that God is there, he is ignorant. But he attains knowledge when he feels that God is here – Sri Ramakrishna

What man wants is already within him but he still wanders here and there searching for it.

Ananda, or perfect bliss within, is one of the signs of God-vision. The waves roll on the surface of the ocean, but the deep expanse of water lies unruffled beneath.
When Divine bliss is attained a person becomes quite intoxicated with it; even without drinking wine, he looks like one fully drunk.
As long as a man feels that God is there, he is ignorant. But he attains knowledge when he feels that God is here.
