Are you the witness of the witness? || Acharya Prashant (2019)

Those who gave us the word ‘Witness’ said, “The Witness is the supreme Truth – akathya (cannot be talked of), achintya (cannot be thought of), akalpya (cannot be imagined of).”

You will not be able to look at it, the tongue can’t talk of it, the mind can’t conceive it.

You must not even try to make it a ‘thing’ of your consciousness.

But the ego loves to play around with even the Sacred, the Sublime.

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.

The speck of dust and the sky, you are both || Acharya Prashant on Rumi (2018)

That’s Rumi’s way of bringing out the difference and the oneness between the seeker and the sought, between the lover and the beloved, between the bhakt and bhagwan. Kindly, do not read his words to mean that love and wisdom are exclusive of each other.

I repeat, what he has said, ‘Wisdom tells us, we are not worthy, love tells us, and we are. My life flows between the two’. Kindly do not take these words to mean that wisdom and love are mutually exclusive. They are not. What is he saying here, he is talking of the last dichotomy, and we live in. And that dichotomy is the difference, separation between our fact and our destiny, our life and our destiny, our periphery and our center, our performance and our potential.

God-Realisation is a myth || Acharya Prashant (2018)

God realisation is a myth.

Nobody can realise god.

All you can realise is the fact of your little life which you refuse to realise because, you are hell-bent upon reaching the heaven. I am totally living as mind and body, let this reverberate in your mind. Let it become a huge explosion. Don’t let yourself forget this, ‘I am living as mind and body’.
