Nothing’s impossible for the soul…

“Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin; to say that you are weak, or others are weak.”

Swami Vivekananda

Reading this quote by Swami Vivekananda changed my whole outlook on “sin”.

  1. I truly adore swami vivekananda for all he has done for the poor people of india, and the huge network he left behind, which still is serving them unselfishly.

      • Yes. Thats where the beauty of these special soul shines bright. Think about Gautam Buddha, Jesus Christ, Hazrat Muhammad and all those luminous beings- thousands of years have passed since they left their mortal shell, still we are getting bathed in their light 🙂

      • Trisha, I’ve been meaning to ask you–do you remember that quote I wrote for you about karma. The one where it talks about people who are “bad” and appear to be reaping good karma and those who are good haven’t yet reaped their karma–from The Dhammapada I believe. Do you know where that might be. I would like to include it in my “Quote” department. I really love it but can’t find it again. If you could help, I would appreciate it.

      • i would have felt absolutely blessed. i missed mother teresa even though i lived in burdwan. but i had the misconception that she must be inaccessible, being a nobel prize winner and world renowned person, i believe i was wrong, but its too late.
