Pure and shimmering
Their eloquence rising and uplifting
Subtly pervading even subtlety
Like air, like light, or like ...
Thoughts .. repugnant or repulsive
Awaiting the end somewhere sometime
of interminable night
in painful silence
Or, in inaudible tones, even rebuking Him
Not ceasing to bewail or protest
Or refrain from putting Him to test
To this, silent is He, without response
Staying steady as ever, unaffected
This to us is seemingly strange
To Him it is
Fullness in nothingness
His imminent nature Divine
He is Brahman
To understand Him
Or even to attempt to interpret
With body, mind, or limited intellect
Is like trying to grasp a sliver of light
Or, the fleeting wind
Perforce in my palm enclosed
Or, to follow a star in its inscrutable flight
Simple, and yet so hard ...
To know Him
I need to Know the "I"
-- Vijay Nikore

Certainly Sir! He cannot be understood by this unit I unless this unit I develops devotion to the Cosmic I.
The Upanishadas say :- to know Him the "unit done I" has to be merged in to "unit doer I" and then doer I to "existential I" feelings and the entity witnessing this existential I feeling is "jivatma". when this practice is perpetuated then this "jivatma " identifies "parmatma" to which you have indicated as "Brahman". Regards.
Thank you, respected Sukul ji.
I resonate with everything that you said.
Only if we could remove the veil of ignorance, for God is right here.
