Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

today/vandaag is
 
December 16 december
The will of the divine will naturally and inevitably assert itself.
This requires no special effort or endeavor.
Awareness, becoming aware of itself, creates an apparent division within itself.
The division is not real, because it is apparently created within itself when consciousness becomes aware of itself.
That is the world.
Since it is not your consciousness that has created this, or since you do not have any consciousness independent of the totality, you cannot create a world.
You can only dream up something and become involved in that dream.
You think you are - 'I am'.
And that 'I am', being repeated again and again, seems to be the truth.
If I am able to face the truth that there is no security in this changing world, from that springs all the virtues.
I do not assume that people are the same today as they were yesterday, so I approach them humbly.
