Shri Nathji used to say, in Urdu:

Gar husn naheen ishq bhee paidaa naheen hotaa
Bulbul gule tasveer pe shaidaa naheen hotaa

If there were no beauty there would be no love,
The nightingale loves not the painted rose of a picture.
The Divine Beauty of God inspired Divine Love.

It is a good thing that God does not unveil Himself or else the impact of his Divine Beauty would completely obliterate man!
“Then, again, the full purport of his Majesty and Power would so fill a man with fear that he would perish in the felling.
“Imagine your fear when you are before the ocean! How much greater would such a fear be if one were to understand the full extent of God’s power!
