"New Year Message" by Swami Sivananda
Know the value of time. Time is most precious. Utilise every second profitably. Live every moment of your life for the realisation of your ideal and goal. Do not procrastinate. That "tomorrow" will never come. Now or never. Abandon idle gossiping. Kill egoism, laziness and inertia. Forget the past. A glorious and brilliant future is awaiting you.
Equal vision is the touchstone of knowledge. Unselfishness is the touchstone of virtue. Brahmacharya is the touchstone of ethics. Oneness is the touchstone of Self-realisation. Humility is the touchstone of devotion. Therefore, be unselfish, humble and pure. Develop equal vision. Be in tune with the Infinite. -Swami Sivananda <More>>==========================================================================
Early Morning Meditation Talk from "Ponder These Truths" of Swami Chidananada
And what is life and what is time if it is not now, if it is not this moment? Without any distinction of age or sex or caste or creed or race it is given to everyone, saint or sinner. That is the equal vision of the Divine. It is not withheld from anyone. It is given to everyone. God comes to everyone as this moment. This is life. This is the I AM God—here, now. That is the greatest thing. This moment is the most tremendous thing that can happen to you. It is the greatest thing that can be given to you. Be wise. Make use of this moment and bless yourself eternally. - Swami Chidananda << More>>

The sages obtain absolute freedom or Moksha—they whose
sins have been destroyed, whose dualities (perception of
dualities or experience of the pairs of opposites) are torn
asunder, who are self-controlled, and intent on the welfare
of all beings. (5:25)
Those who strive for liberation from old age and death,
taking refuge in Me, realise in full that Brahman, the whole
knowledge of the Self and all action. (7:29)

meditation, taking refuge in dispassion, (18:52)

Attaining to this, none is deluded. Being established
therein, even at the end of life one attains to oneness with
