Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

today/vandaag is
 
January 7 januari
The external situations or circumstances have but a neutral intrinsic value; it is one's own mind that attributes pleasure and pain, good and evil to them.
In order to enter into that spirit of oneness, one must drop one's own ego, one's selfishness, and one's self-righteousness.
When the veil that is the ego is discarded, the evil lust to dominate the other person vanishes.
When yoga speaks of virtue, it merely suggests that you should look at your own life.
Become aware of what you are.
We have too long and too morbidly indulged in 'Thou shalt, thou shalt not'.
Virtue cannot be imposed upon one from outside.
