Who is the thief? What is it to cut off his hands? || Acharya Prashant,on Guru Granth Sahib(2019)

So when you create a worldly God, then the fate of that worldly God is the same as all things worldly.

What is the fate of all things worldly?

They are destroyed by time.

Similarly your worldly God is also destroyed by time.

That is the punishment of those who do not know the one Truth, the one Reality, the one God.

They create fake images of God, and those images only bring them dissatisfaction and dishonour.

How to move beyond the pointlessness of existence? || Acharya Prashant (2019)

Irrespective of what life is really showing us, we want to assume, maintain, insist and think that we are right.

We want to assert that even if we are wrong, we have not gone fully wrong.

Therefore, we are never fed up of ourselves.

Therefore, we are always hopeful about the future.

And therefore we want to preserve ourselves to move into the future, and enjoy the fruits of our clever actions.

Learn to cheat the ego || Acharya Prashant (2019)

Spirituality is the art of cheating the ego.

Unless you know how to cheat yourself, how can you be spiritual.

If you try to be honest with the ego, you will never be able to deal with the ego.

Learn to cheat yourself.

If you are to be loyal to the Truth, you must learn how to be disloyal to yourself.

If you are loyal to yourself, you cannot be loyal to the Truth.

Pick your side.
