112. The Hill of Sugar

You cannot know all of God.
You are an ant who found a hill of sugar.
You rejoice! You eat a whole lump of sugar, and it fills your stomach completely. You barely manage to carry back a lump of sugar to your home, something to share with your fellow ants.
"Next time," you think to yourself, "I will bring back the whole sugar hill."
But you can't. You are just an ant.
Even the biggest ant, the most wise among the ant seekers, might be able to bring back two or three lumps of sugar, no more than that.

Inspired byTales and Parables of Sri Ramakrishna
Notes: This is story 125 in the book. You can find out more about Ramakrishna at Wikipedia.
