Source of Knowledge

Swami Vivekananda

#. Knowledge is inherent in man; no knowledge comes from outside; it is all inside; What we say a man "knows", should, in strict psychological language, be what he "discovers" or "unveils"; what a man learns is really what he "discovers", by taking the cover off his own soul which is a mine of infinite knowledge.

#. All knowledge that the world has ever received comes from the mind; the infinite library of the universe is in your own mind. The external world is simply the suggestion, the occasion, which sets you to study your own mind, but the object of your study is always your own mind.

#. All knowledge, secular or spiritual, is in the human mind. In many cases it is not discovered, but remains covered, and when the covering is being slowly taken off we say "we are learning", and the advance of knowledge is made by the advance of this process of uncovering.

#. The man from whom this veil is being lifted is the more knowing man; the man upon whom it lies thick is ignorant, and the man from whom it has entirely gone is all-knowing, omniscient.

#. You have to grow from inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
