Why does the mind compare everything with the past? || Acharya Prashant (2014)

The mind is like that. It has no independent existence of its own. It lives only in relation. Only in comparison. If it cannot relate something to the past it will not be able to make any sense of it.

It derives its very existence from a relationship with knowledge. The thing must already be there in the mind by way of knowledge for it to make any sense to you. So that’s all the mind can do.

~ Acharya Prashant

Is love a trick of physical nature? || Acharya Prashant (2017)

That, in the world, which takes you to the Truth, is worth loving, is worth maintaining a relationship with and that in the world, that takes you away from the Truth, is something that you must immediately put away.

Feel grateful when your confusions get exposed || Acharya Prashant (2016)

Exposure is not causation.

Every time something is being exposed, feel grateful.

Because it was always there; it is just being brought to light now.

How can I know the Truth?

Questioner: Why can’t truth come in thoughts?

AP: Have you ever thought of something that will not disappear? And have you ever thought with the intention that something must deceive you? You think so that you get clarity and security. You think for your welfare. Don’t you? But you always think in terms of objects. Can you ever think of something that has no form, no shape, and no name? Can you ever think of something, even imagine, which is beyond space and time?

So all your thoughts are of things that are contained in this temporary material world. But the objective of thinking is to give you a Joy and a security that is beyond all this temporary material world. You think in one dimension, and the purpose of thinking is to take you to a totally different dimension. That will never happen. So thought in that sense is quite useless.
