The Secret of Life

From On the Wings of the Swan, Volume 7, Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati

It is easier to fall back into the same old pattern than to improve and constantly try to improve yourself, to know and to apply. Success in life depends on continuously trying to know, learn and apply what you have learned. That is the secret of success in life.

Never have the thought, ‘Oh, I know this already’. Those who believe that ‘I know this already’ are the losers in the long run, because the ego comes up and says, ‘I know it from before’. With this thought, a natural barrier goes up which stops the learning process.

When you believe that you do not know anything, even when you may be master of the subject, you will always find that your performance improves each time. That is the secret of life.

—23 October 2007, Ganga Darshan, Munger
