Givng up possessions


You give up various possessions. If, instead, you give up “I” and “mine”, you give them all up in one stroke and lose the very seed of possession. Disinterest in the non-Self must be very strong to do this. One’s eagerness must be equal to that of a person kept under water while trying to rise to the surface to breathe.

—Sri Ramana Maharshi
