What is meant by ‘I am awareness alone’? || Acharya Prashant, on Ashtavakra Gita (2018)

Invite happiness, and very soon you will discover that happiness has a very long tail – hope, expectations, memories, sadness, despair.

Invite hope, and you will discover that hope has a very long tail.

They all come together.

It’s impossible to be available to one disease, and resistant to another.

When you would be attacked, you would be attacked totally; you won’t be spared.

Maya knows no half measures.

No descriptions or sequences really apply to the Truth || Acharya Prashant, on Raman Maharshi (2019)

The True lover of Truth has to be an unrelenting skeptic.

He has to be uncompromisingly ruthless.

What is it that he must be skeptical of?

Everything, everything that comes from him.

That’s the one trait that characterizes the true seeker – a total absence of confidence.

He keeps asking, probing, and never concludes.

He never stops at something.

He never ends.
