Do liberated souls identify God in human form directly?

[Smt. Priyanka asked: In some cases, people go through the process of finding their Sadguru by meeting several gurus initially and finally end up meeting their Sadguru, with whom they feel satisfied with the spiritual knowledge given by them. Does that process happen only for normal souls or do liberated souls and incarnations of demi-Gods meet and identify God in human form directly (due to the will of God) or do they also go through this process of finding their Sadguru?]

Swāmi Replied:- All the categories mentioned by you are just equal to each other from the standpoint of Sadguru. The teacher teaches the same subject with climax of concentration to every student equally in the class. Whether the student is rich or poor, black or white, beautiful or ugly etc., the teaching does not differentiate any student from any other. All the receivers of the true Spiritual knowledge are only the created souls and not the creator God. Sadguru may look like a created soul externally, but, He is the creator internally. God merges with a visible and imaginable medium to preach the true Spiritual knowledge to guide all the souls in the true path. You can differentiate one soul from the other based on its deservingness acquired by self-effort. The fruits will also vary due to the difference in their deservingness. The cloud rains equally on the earth. The fertile soil yields crops and the barren land does not yield even a sprout.
