Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

today/vandaag is
 
August 19 augustus
Sooner or later in one's life a situation is reached where one is overwhelmed by the magnitude of the power beyond human might - transcendent and yet accessible to the human being; and then there arises spontaneous devotion to it.
The ego has 'understood' the teaching and henceforth becomes the Master's self-appointed messenger or interpreter.
If I go to the teacher, I must go symbolically holding a flower in my hand.
"It is the flower of my heart that I offer at Your Feet."
And having offered myself at His Feet, I stand there not expecting a thing, knowing that expectation itself is the parent of all unhappiness, of all misery.
