The difference between belief, fact and Faith || Acharya Prashant (2014)

Faith has no object. You can never have Faith ‘in’ something. Faith is just Faith.

Faith is when you are going beyond objects. When thoughts are no more there. Yet the deepest enquiry has brought you to the point where you just know. Just know. And there is deep peace which indicates to you that now you know. This peace cannot come without knowing. “My peace is a proof that I know.” Obviously you cannot hand over that peace to somebody.

Facts can be circulated. Imaginations can be told. Not Faith.

But yes, Faith shines upon the face. It is nothing, but it makes everything worthwhile. It is nothing by itself but it makes everything worthwhile. Peace is nothing. Can you show me a little bit of peace? It is impossible. But in peace life becomes worth living.

Honesty- a direct uncorrupted movement from Self to action || Acharya Prashant (2014)

No, honesty is not a policy. Honesty is your uncorrupted way of living. Where there is a direct beautiful movement from the self to the mind, from the mind to the thoughts, from thoughts to action, that is honesty. Nothing is getting corrupted at any stage. There is no leakage. There is no pilferage. It starts as pure essence and ends as pure action. It starts as pure essence and ultimately flowers as pure action. Nothing dilutes it in between.
