Matthew 6:6 New International Version (NIV)
6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father,who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
When you meet God in your inner self, the encounter is transformational. This is in the depth of the soul. The knowing of God and the knowing of yourself will bring you to your true home with God.
