If we let fly an arrow, that action is not from us: we are only the bow, and the shooter of the
arrow is God.
You may try thousands of times, but nothing can be achieved without God’s grace. One cannot see God without His grace. Is it an easy thing to receive the grace of God? One must altogether renounce egotism; one cannot see God as long as one feels ‘I am the doer.’...God doesn’t easily appear in the heart of a man who feels himself to be his own master. But God can be seen the moment His grace descends.
(Sri Ramakrishna)
I can of mine own self do nothing.
(St. John, v. 30)
