The devotee must beware of dangers involved in wandering into the byways of curiosity, forgetful of the direct highway to God. Many, many devotees would have found God and heard from His infinite lips the solution to all puzzles had they not strayed into blind alleys of unsatisfied spiritual or intellectual curiosity.

Man should not desire knowledge of the mysteries of God's creation in preference to knowledge of God Himself. The true devotee loves God so ardently that He is compelled to manifest Himself in the devotional consciousness; the devotee leaves unto God the right to reveal, or not reveal, the secrets of His kingdom. Even with the best human friends, one does not betray a vulgar curiosity! Eventually those friends, without one's rude probing, confide fully and naturally all secrets of their lives.

Good points. Not sure how Spirit replies to having some subtle experiences that one wonders the intent of; an example... spirit totems.

if the language of spirit totem is perceptible to you but you aren't sure what to make of it, then i'd say you are closer friends with god than you realize.
