Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

today/vandaag is

The relation between the senses and the sense-pleasure is such that when the former taste the latter they forget the Lord and the purpose of creation, deluding themselves that objective enjoyment is the goal and that pleasure is independent of the self or God.
But to understand rightly demands great purity of heart and penetrating intelligence.
The mind is caught in this trap of measuring, defining and thus confining.
Understanding that all description is a limitation, one may drop the measuring instrument and catch a glimpse occasionally of the Immeasurable.
Even the striving to be happy is the surest proof of unhappiness.
In this striving, when one grabs moments of happiness, the grabbing destroys the happiness and the striving, which is unhappiness, alone remains.
When all these are dropped, then happiness is.
It can never be caught.
I can never seek happiness.
I can never be happy.
I am happiness.
