Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

Is it possible for you to realise, one hundred percent, that whatever opinion you have - even if you are tempted to say it is the truth - is at best your opinion, and nothing more?
If you can admit it to yourself you have won sixty percent of the battle.
Then you are not vehement any more; you are not dogmatic any more; you are not assertive any more; you are not arrogant any more.
Truth cannot be applied.
It has to be realised.
It has to come from within.
It must be realised and become the living truth.
How did man create this space around himself in the first place?
Surely by thinking that he is independent of and separate from the rest of the universe.
This thought itself is space.
This thought (which is the "I"-thought) generates other thoughts in order to assume and to establish a relationship between the individual and the rest of the universe.
These thoughts pollute that inner space.
