Pleasures of consciousness vs pleasures of the body || Acharya Prashant, on Shri Nisargadatta (2019)

The pleasures of consciousness are not the pleasures of body.

The body has it’s pleasures, and consciousness has a totally different dimension of pleasure.

That which pleases the body, is not that which pleases consciousness.

But the two become one, because our consciousness is body-consciousness.

The pleasures of the body inflate the body, reinforce the body.

And the pleasures of consciousness dissolve the consciousness.

Such a  great difference.

Never forget who you are! || Acharya Prashant (2019)

Others and situations, are able, to cause a drastic change, in your mental environment, because you are not aligned with, you are not sticking to, something immovable.

Had you really been tethered to something, that cannot be proven false, that can be easily blown away, then how could the others, just carry you along, and take you for a ride, and shake you, and displace you?
