Question: Suppose, someone gave me a cup of coffee and naturally I can enjoy it to a certain extent. But if I could somehow magnify in my own eyes the one who gave it to me, then could the pleasure be endless?
Answer: Depending on who gave it to you. It could be either an English queen, or some great sage, or some man of art. It depends on what you appreciate.
Question: And if I do not appreciate that queen?
Answer: Then it would be just a cup of coffee to you.
Question: And how does it happen with the Creator?
Answer: It is the same with the Creator. It depends on how you demand from Him, whether bestowing to Him is a reward for you. In that case, even if you do not want to receive but only to bestow upon Him, it will already be a pleasure for you.
Question: But how can you magnify Him?
Answer: If you want the Creator to be important to you, you must ask Him to reveal to you not Himself, but His greatness, because if He reveals Himself, you will enjoy the fact that the Creator is already in front of me, that He has come to me.
But if you begin to seek Him in order to be able to bestow upon Him, then you will only ask Him for the importance of His property of bestowal and love, and not Himself.
Question: Even if I do not know who He is?
Answer: You do not have to know. You will even be afraid of Him revealing Himself because it will immediately enslave you and you will not be able to get away from it. Therefore, you have to ask not that He Himself will be revealed, but His importance.
