Excerpted from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna, Page 186
The Master Said:
"One should not reason too much; it is enough if one loves
the Lotus Feet of the Mother. Too much reasoning throws
the mind into confusion. You get clear water if you drink
from the surface of a pool. Put your hand deeper and stir
the water, and it becomes muddy.
Therefore pray to God for devotion."
