Today let me talk to you about how Divinity plays a vital role in empowering our body. Let me start with eyes today. If you look at the power of vision, eyes can see everything. We feel God has given these eyes to see everything. In the daylight we see it crystal clear and in the night times we see it with the help of artificial light. But there are certain things which we really cannot see; we need external aids to see them though they are very close to our eyes. They are the eyebrows and the eyelashes. To see them, we need a mirror. The beauty of our vision only pertains to this much. That is what God has given us. We feel we are perfect. But still there is an extent of imperfection with our vision.

Take our ears, for instance; we can hear everything, but we cannot hear noises or sounds that are of very high frequencies which the animals can hear. So our hearing is not perfect as it should be.

If you look at our nose, we do breathe but if there is an imperfection caused or there is a constriction in our nasal passage, we can’t breathe properly. Likewise when we come to the mouth, we do speak but what we speak is only what we are trained to. For example, if we take our mother tongue, we can speak fluently because we are trained to speak as a child itself. We can be trained to speak in other languages. Other than that we don’t know what to speak. When we hear an alien language, we cannot understand those words, and if we want to reproduce the same amount of sounds then we have to be trained. Just because we hear those words, we may not reproduce those sounds as it is, most of the times. So there is imperfection even in our speech.

When we look at the sense of touch, we do touch and feel, but we do not understand what it means. And especially when we are given anaesthesia or when the senses are numbed, we don’t even feel what we touch. So there is imperfection. Whatever five senses we have been given, we understand they are perfect but they are not as you now understand. So this is the kind of imperfection we have in our lives today. We have to make it perfect. These five senses are imperfect because we have not understood the presence of God here and because of this absence we are not able to fully realise their potentiality. But still we understand, we deem to understand, we have the kind of inner understanding—‘look I can speak, I can talk, I can hear, I can see, I can smell, I can breathe, I can touch.’ So all my five senses are perfect. In fact, they are not perfect because of the absence of God, absence of divinity, absence of spiritual vibrations in it. Suddenly a logical question may pop up in your mind—‘if I get the divine grace, can I see my eye lid?’ Divinity says, “If you get the divine grace, you can not only see your eyelid, but you can also see within yourself too.” What is it? If you get the divine grace, you can hear all kinds of sounds, you’ll start having ESP—extra sensory perception.

The whole beauty of divinity is to improve upon our five senses to make them extra-sensory and super-sensory. Remember when the five senses are tuned to a higher quality and to a higher level in correlation with divinity, we come to understand and feel the subtleness of the Creator. Thus our five senses become extraordinarily perfect and we can feel the presence of divinity in our body itself.
