1. Longing: If you experience that same longing and thirst for union with Me as one who has been lying for days in the hot sun of the Sahara experiences the longing for water, then you will realize Me.
2. Peace of mind: If you have the peace of a frozen lake, then too you will realize Me.
3. Humility: If you have humility of earth, which can be molded into any shape then you will know Me.
4. Desperation: If you experience the desperation that causes a person to commit suicide and you feel you cannot live without seeing Me, then you will see Me.
5. Faith: If you have the complete faith that Kalyan had in his Master -in believing it was night although it was day because his Master said so -then you will know Me.
6. Fidelity: If you have the fidelity that your breath has in keeping you company till the end of your life -even without your constantly feeling it, both in happiness and suffering, never turning against you—then you will know Me.
7. Control through love: When your love for Me drives away your lust for the things of the senses, then you will realize Me.
8. Selfless service: If you have the quality of the selfless service unaffected by results similar to that of the sun, which serves the world by shining on all creation -on the grass in the field, on the birds in the air, on the beasts in the forest, on all of mankind with its sinners and saints, its rich and poor -unmindful of the attitude towards it, then you will Me.
9. Renunciation: If you renounce for Me everything physical, mental and spiritual, then you will have Me.
10. Obedience: If your obedience is as spontaneous, complete, and natural as light is to the eye or smell to nose, then you will come to Me.
11. Surrender: If your surrender to Me is as wholehearted as that of one who, suffering from insomnia, surrenders to sudden sleep without fear of being lost, then you will have Me.
12. Love: If you have that love for Me that Saint Francis had for Jesus, then you will realize Me and you will also please Me.
