AlOchanaamR^itaM

AlochanaamR^itaM Vivekananda to an Agnostic Swami Vivekananda responding to a famous American agnostic Robert Ingersoll who said to him, "religion is of no use. Why bother our heads about other worlds?":

"...You think it is enough to live and eat and drink and have a little scientific knowledge, but you have no right to say that will suit all tastes... Such a conception is nothing to me. If I had only to learn how an apple falls to the ground, or how an electric current shakes my nerves, I would commit suicide. I want to understand the heart of things, the very kernel itself. Your study is the manifestation of life, mine is the life itself".
"My philosophy says you must know that and drive out from your mind all thoughts of heaven and hell and all other superstitions, even though they exist in the same sense that this world exists. I must know the heart of this life, its very essence, what it is, not only how it works and what are its manifestations. I want to know the why of everything, I leave the how to children."

- Swami Vivekananda (The Gift Unopened by Eleanor Stark, pp. 89)

Food for thought

When you said "Yes" to Me, you gave up the right to be like everyone else. That is why you draw experiences to yourself that will cleanse yourself of that which does not fit who you are. Over and over, again and again, until I make you see that the past no longer works. I challenge you and tempt you every day with your past, so that you may see that the past is the ultimate delusion. When you said "yes" to Me you gave Me your body, your thoughts and your actions. When they don't suit the new you, the uncomfortableness is unbearable. It will be so EVERY time and when you realize this fully, then and only then will you completely give up desire. For this is the only way man will learn. Very seldom does he learn by quiet reminders. Man's desires and pitfalls are placed there so that I may do My work. When you give up totally, then the temptations will fade. I will never give up on you. Every slip will become harder and harder to bear and less easy to remedy. You will tire of your foolishness because I love you and though not completely aware of it, you did say "Yes".
