One need not fear anything if one has received the grace of God. It is rather easy for a child to stumble if he holds his father’s hand; but there can be no such fear if the father holds the child’s hand. A man does not have to suffer anymore if God, in His grace, removes his doubts and reveals Himself to Him. But this grace descends upon him only after he has prayed to God with intense yearning of heart and practised spiritual discipline. The Mother feels compassion for her child when she sees him running about breathlessly. She has been hiding herself; now she appears before the child.
(p.116, The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna)
