Your best is expressed only in Joy || Acharya Prashant (2014)

A beautifully designed engine will not work, if you do not use it for ten years, twenty years. Will it work? It may be the best engine in the world. The same is the case with the mind. Our mind is a beautifully designed machine. It’s an instrument of the highest order, an instrument that man cannot make. But because of conditioning, we do not use the mind, instead we start using memory. Using the mind means, application of intelligence but our education is such that we substitute intelligence with memory, then the mind become dysfunctional.

Dance, and dance naked

The one to whom you most quickly and frequently turn to seeking support, is also the one who would want you to keep seeking support. That is the difference between God and this world. When you take support from the world, the world ensures that you keep taking support. The world ensures that you never become strong enough to not to ask for support. When you take support from God, He ensures that you need no more support.

Purpose of life

Do you know why you are here?

You are here just to ‘be’, to express your core. That’s it, simple. I am, I express. I am, I express. You won’t be able to express if there are rules, and expectations, and ideals, and hopes, and burdens that you have put upon yourself. You won’t be able to dance. And remember, enjoyment is not entertainment. Enjoyment is not titillation.

Why does mind fear change? || Acharya Prashant (2014)

What does the mind have? – Object. What kind of object? – Money, Relationships, Respect, Body. All of these are subject to disappearance in time. Money came from outside and can go back, respect is given by others and they can withdraw the respect. The body too, will fall in time.

That is the reason mind is afraid, mind wants some content; that contents is its very existence, its very identity. But that content is borrowed content. And when I am living on borrowed content I will be afraid that this will be taken away. But the mind will not be afraid if you tell it that, “If this content goes away, something more valuable is waiting for you.” Then the mind will not resist change.

The true Lover wants you free; the false lover wants you dependent || Acharya Prashant (2016)

Real Love is so ordinary, so inconspicuous that it does not make its presence felt.

You cannot detect it.

So, the real lover always gets left behind.

The fake one always dominates the scene.

In fact, the real lover gets punished.

You crucify a Christ. Yeah! He does not love!

Why does one experience fear? || Acharya Prashant (2016)

I do not have a responsibility to prove to the entire world that I am brave. I do not have to act as per the expectations of other people or even as per my own expectations, my own images of what is courageous and what is bravery.

Was it a brave thing to do? I do not know.

Was it a cowardly thing to do? I do not know.

I do not bother to know. It just happened. There is something much more important that I am always with. I have no time, no energy to spend on this matter.
