Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

January 30 januari
As a famous prayer goes: "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference."
The world does not need me.
It can get on jolly well without me.
I do not need the world.
I can jolly well get on without anybody - my constant companion being myself.
Yet I need to serve, for only in such service, in such relationship, can I know myself.
The service or the particular form of the relationship is not important; it is the self-awareness that is.
We believe we are different from each other.
That is the pollutant.
