Swami Vivekananda: Misery comes when we think we are finite
In practical daily life we are hurt by small things; we are enslaved by little things. Misery comes because we think we are finite – we are little beings. And yet, how difficult it is to believe that we are infinite beings! In the midst of all this misery and trouble, when a little thing may throw me off balance, it must be my care to believe that I am infinite. And the fact is that we are, and that consciously or unconsciously we are all searching after that something which is infinite; we are always seeking for freedom.
