Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Keep the Goal Clear
"From looking at many people's lives, we often see
that they are almost like rudderless boats. They're
just tossed here and there. There is no direction
for them. Even a small wind can toss them here and
there. And to such people it's very, very difficult
to say when they will reach their goal, and how.
In Yoga it's the same. We must always keep the goal
clear and see that our every action is recorded,
measured, limited and controlled. Every one of us
must become navigators. The body is like the boat;
inside is our common sense, and our intelligence
is the navigator.
"God bless you. Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
