Acharya Prashant, with students: Will living without ego cause one to starve?

I Invite you to find out whether you would really starve. The world will always have enough for you to eat. You won’t starve but you may not be able to fulfill these ambitions.

The funny part is even the ambition has been given to you by outside. So there is nothing lost if you can’t fulfill it. You don’t loose anything at all if you don’t meet your ambitions. Remember, there will always be enough to meet your needs. And a free man will always find enough to meet his needs. Because his needs are always so small.

You don’t need too much but yes, your ambitions depend upon your subservience to the society.

Needs don’t make you a slave, ambitions make you a slave.

~ Acharya Prashant

Ambition – the burning need to achieve

When you are less ambitious, then that which you want comes to you on its own. It is continuously coming to you on its own.

But when you are ambitious, then you close your doors. It’s like you are rushing towards the temple and God meets you on the way. Then what do you say, “Old man, older than time, make way, I have more important matters to attain to, there is the idol of God waiting for me.”

On Ishavasya Upanishad: There is nothing called spiritual knowledge

With the universe gone, death too goes way.

With the universe gone, by the way, birth too goes away.

No universe, then where were you born?

How to ask the right question?

The really inquisitive one would actually ask very little.

He very well knows that all his questions emanate from himself and hence, cannot not take him beyond himself.
No answer can be beyond the question that you ask. So, the answer never satisfies the question. The answer only creates the ground for the next question. So the really inquisitive one doesn’t come to seek answers; he comes for solutions. So he doesn’t ask much. Sometimes he may not ask anything not because he is hiding something but because he knows the pointlessness of asking a limited question.

~Acharya Prashant

Work and Immersion

You don’t need to pretend that you are very busy with your work. If your Heart is at the right place, right work will naturally flow from it. You won’t then do it to display to somebody. If would not then be a means of earning something. Now work is an expression of your Heart. And you do not bother about how it appears to others. You know what you are doing. You are not doing it for anybody else. You are doing it for yourself. It is your own personal thing. And personal in the right sense of the word. Not in the divided sense.

Now you are not doing it to please your boss. Now it is your own work, you have ownership. You don’t even have to really report. Because you are your own authority now. You cannot sleep properly if you know that you haven’t done the due. Why do you even need to go and tell somebody else? Somebody else might be easily deceived. And that’s what you do when you report to somebody else. It is very easy to deceive him, because you are the one who is reporting, you can misrepresent.

But when you are doing it from your Heart, then your Heart is the authority.

And it cannot be deceived.

That is real work.

That is real immersion.
