Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

today/vandaag is
December 28 december
A lamp lit from another is a lamp, too.
Something that nature wishes to prevent us from experiencing is naturally endowed with a sharp sensation.
The pure reaction of the intelligence to this is hardly ever seen - except perhaps in a little baby.
But, later on, thought invents its own code, overriding nature's message, and suggests that it is something of an obstacle to overcome and builds an image of heroism around this concept.
The experience is still painful, but thought intervenes every time and hallows it - till it becomes a deadly habit.
Everything is bound to change; there is change from day to day.
Once I see the truth there is no fear.
