My message is,
love God to such an extent that you become God.
That love is a gift from God.
One of the means by which it can be won is selfless service
but the selfless service should be so sublime
that you should not even have a thought that you are serving!
You can love God. You can see God.
He is not anywhere outside, but right within you.
So you must seek Him within.
Conviction through understanding is possible
(by reading and contemplation, etc.)
but conviction by sight is the real conviction.
After that, some rare one can achieve conviction
by actual becoming i.e., realizing God.
