Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

today/vandaag is
 
August 12 augustus
Of course you can have treasures - only if you are awake!
Some functions in the body are completely involuntary.
In the same way, life in the world goes on whether we will it or not.
The major part of it is beyond our control.
We blame our present conditions on a remote past, ignoring the immediate cause (which may be the same as the remote cause).
The problem is inside me; the problem is me, not what I did years ago.
It is more profitable therefore that we should look within immediately, now, and discover the present cause of the present conflict or unhappiness, without relating it to past Karma or commitment.
