Different Types Of Devotee's

A poor devotee points to the sky and says, "God is up there."

An average devotee says, "God dwells in the heart as the Inner Master."

The best devotee says, "God alone is and everything I perceive is a form of God

~Gospel Of Sri RamaKrishna

Another version of this: (from Success Sutra)
The inferior devotee says, "God exists, but He is very far off, up there in heaven." The mediocre devotee says, "God exists in all beings as life and consciousness." The superior devotee says, "It is God Himself who has become everything; whatever i see is only a form of God. It is He alone who has become Maya, the universe, and all living beings. Nothing exists but God."
