How can I see God?

disciple :  Sir, please tell me how I can see God?

guru : Come with me and I shall show you.

He took the disciple to a lake, and both of them got into the water. Suddenly the teacher pressed the disciple’s head under the water. 

After a few moments he released him and the disciple raised his head and stood up.

 guru : How did you feel?

disciple : Oh! I thought I should die; I was panting for breath.

 guru :  When you feel like that for God, then you will know 
you haven’t long to wait for His vision!

from Tales and Parables of Sri Ramakrishna
