Knowing my selfish nature, I feel undeserving to talk with You. How to approach You fearlessly?

[Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked: Pādanamaskāraṃ Swāmi, You are so kind and so forgiving at heart. You have all the goodness in the world. But knowing my selfish nature, I feel undeserving to talk with You and hold back myself from approaching You. But without Your Divine presence, my mind becomes even more worse. You are my true well wisher. Yet, I feel so afraid to approach You sometimes. How do I get out of this inferiority complex and approach You fearlessly? Please help me. -At Your Divine Lotus Feet, Laxmi Thrylokya]

Swāmi Replied: The human incarnation has the two sides of a coin. One side is Divine and the other side is Human. You have to keep both sides in your view so that you will attain a balanced state between excitation and normality. If you forget human side and look the Divine side only, you will develop the fear complex. If you see only human side, you will neglect the human incarnation. You have to balance your two views of both sides, for which purpose only God has given you two eyes.
