KATHOPANISHAD

The Spirit lodged within oneself is unperceived because of the perplexities of joy and grief and attachment to worldly, objects. When one realizes the divine Spirit within himself, all the confusion of joy, and grief disappears.

(2)-12

This realization can come only it from inside one’s own heart spring purity of resolve and earnestness of spirit. It does not come by study or learned discussions. It comes to one whose Self yearns for realization, and whose mind has turned away from evil and has learnt to subdue itself and to be at peace with the world.

(2)-23, 24

In other words, it comes out of the longing for self-realization that leads to detachment, rather than from much learning; that is to say, it comes out of the grace of the Supreme Spirit that dwells within us.
