Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

September 23 september
He who knows this secret will neither resist nor cling to the world.
He will not blame the world, or himself for living in such a world.
He knows the depth of the ocean, but he also knows his own power to swim or float on its surface.
He does not get drowned.
When you see that the lovely tail and the dreadful mouth both belong to the same cobra, you do not touch the tail and you are not bitten by its mouth.
Our concepts have poured into this emptiness.
This is our mistake.
We keep the emptiness in its glorious state and try to rid ourselves of our problems, but the emptiness is still there and will attract something else.
