Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

It is possible to catch the fish and show that it is separate from the ocean only because ocean is not omnipresent.
Since God is omnipresent this paradox does not arise in him.
Yet just before reaching the danger spot we are complacent; just as the waters of a river about one hundred yards upstream from a waterfall appear to be completely calm, unaware of the awaiting fate.
If I am anxious to have peace of mind, I am like the person who is preoccupied with the need for falling asleep and repeats, "I must sleep, I must sleep."
He will not sleep!
Possibly, if I stop telling myself, "I must sleep," I will fall asleep immediately.
