Comprehension:
Read the passage carefully and answer questions from 46 to 50.
Our Life exists by constant interchange arid replenishment. Every day, food is needed for the body to survive. For our vital energies to thrive every day, vital nourishment is needed. For our minds to be sharp and intelligent every day, an increase in knowledge is needed. But a human does not live by nourishment of the mind, life energy and body alone, but also by the nourishment that comes by the connection with our Divine source. This deeper nourishment is needed each day for our inmost well-being. To connect to our deeper self and receive its nourishment, our awareness needs to touch deeper than our mind, vital energy and body. A mere mental awareness cannot touch this inner-most space. Our efforts too can take us only up to a certain point. The true question is, how much do we really want to connect with the divinity within us. If it is a sincere inner urge, then at some point, we realize that there is a Presence that lives within us and carries us forward. To recognize this Presence when it reveals itself to us, we can begin to know its nature. It exists quietly in the background, often unnoticed by our surface self. When we are lost in the whirls of our mind, vital life- energy and body, we lose our connection with this ‘presence’. When we remember and sincerely seek to connect, sooner or later, the ‘Presence’ makes itself felt.
