Meditation Basics: Dive Deep O My Mind Lecture

Just as the swan separates milk from the water with which it has been mixed and drinks only the milk, leaving the water behind, similarly, the Paramahamsa accepts only what is Real (i.e., Absolute) rejecting what is unreal (i.e., the phenomenal world).

"Each soul is a star, and all stars are set in that infinite azure, that eternal sky, the Lord.  There is the root, the reality, the real individuality of each and all. Religion began with the search after some of these stars that had passed beyond our horizon, and ended in finding them all in God, and ourselves in the same place."  
- Swami Vivekananda -
