Living joyfully with uncertainty || Acharya Prashant (2019)

You do not know what the next shock from the world would be, you do not know what the next news would be, you do not know what the next wave would bring.

If you do not like this helpless state, then you will have to live as someone who is very surely unaffected.

It is possible, because the tendency to feel affected is a choice.

It is a deliberate choice.

If it is a choice to feel affected by the world, surely the choice can be reversed.

Surely one can also choose to not remain affected by the world.

Don’t ask for confidence, ask for fearlessness || Acharya Prashant (2017)

The more the world will mean to you, the more afraid you would be.

The more your mind is full of others – and thoughts of others, and opinion of others, what the others can give, what the others can take, what they are saying, how they are looking, how you are looking to others – as long as your mind is full of this, your face will be dripping with fear.

More is the presence of world in the mind, more is the life full of fear.

More is life full of fear, more is the demand of confidence.

Unfortunately, confidence is no treatment for fear.
