Are you the witness of the witness? || Acharya Prashant (2019)

Those who gave us the word ‘Witness’ said, “The Witness is the supreme Truth – akathya (cannot be talked of), achintya (cannot be thought of), akalpya (cannot be imagined of).

You will not be able to look at it, the tongue can’t talk of it, the mind can’t conceive it.

You must not even try to make it a ‘thing’ of your consciousness.

But the ego loves to play around with even the Sacred, the Sublime.

How important is intuition? || Acharya Prashant, on Guru Granth Sahib (2019)

Whatever the mind does is very noticeable, because there is a lot of friction and a lot of noise contained in it.

When the mind does something it is always with a lot of noise, and fanfare, and show, and demonstration.

When it happens from the True Self, it happens with a great felicity, with a great ease.

It is smooth. You cannot notice it.

It is almost a non-happening.

That is ‘sahajtaa’.

Pour all that you have into a worthy cause || Acharya Prashant (2018)

As long as you have spare time, spare space, spare energy, it will turn against you.

You have to devote every bit of yourself to something very sublime, far bigger than you.

This devotion is called – ‘Surrender’.

What else is ‘Surrender’? To give that up which you have.

But just can’t give up something to anybody or anywhere.

It has to be given to the Right One.

Man living godly is the only real proof of God || Acharya Prashant, on ‘The Fountainhead’ (2019)

If God has given you anything, it’s just the freedom, the power, and the responsibility to create yourself.

You are your own father, God is just the background.

God is just the canvas on which you paint yourself.

God is the brush, God is the colour, God is the canvas, but the design and the painting is yours.

If what you paint looks horrible, do not blame God.

God gave you choice.

You misused the choice, or you used it terribly well.

Both possibilities are there.
