Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

today/vandaag is
 
December 15 december
Dynamism and detachment, efficiency and egolessness are possible only if one applies oneself to one's innate talents and faculties, if one discovers oneself, instead of struggling to imitate someone else.
If you have taken a walk in the bush you might begin to wonder, why are there such a variety of leaves?
Who is interested in that variety, that diversity?
This is merely the work of infinite consciousness expressing itself infinitely without desire.
Only that mind can be still which has arrived at its own conclusion.
It has committed suicide as it were.
Just as the ocean can become absolutely calm, without any waves at all, and yet still be there, only its modification as waves and currents having ceased, even so intelligence will be there without the modifications known as thoughts, ideas, concepts and actions.
