Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Expand Your Understanding
"Understand yourself first. Understand your capacity,
then you will say, `Well, it is my capacity now; let
me develop my capacity to understand more.' When a
razor doesn't shave properly it's because the razor
is blunt. So what should be done? The razor must be
sharpened if you want to use it again. In the same
way, our intellect is blunt, it has its own limitations.
So, sharpen your intellect. There is no harm in
wanting to know everything, but if you really want
to know everything, become fit. Develop the capacity
to know everything. Then, it will be revealed to you.
In reality, nothing is hidden from youit is all an
open book. Once you expand yourself, then you will
understand things more and more.
"God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi."
