How important is intuition? || Acharya Prashant, on Guru Granth Sahib (2019)

Whatever the mind does is very noticeable, because there is a lot of friction and a lot of noise contained in it.

When the mind does something it is always with a lot of noise, and fanfare, and show, and demonstration.

When it happens from the True Self, it happens with a great felicity, with a great ease.

It is smooth. You cannot notice it.

It is almost a non-happening.

That is ‘sahajtaa’.

Watch where your time is going || Acharya Prashant, on Nitnem Sahib (2019)

So be extremely cautious.

You have to be cautious towards the investment of all your resources, but among all the resources, we have repeatedly said that, the prime one is – Time.

Time.

Be careful about everything that you spend.

The other things that you spend can be regained, money lost can probably be regained, but there is one resource that is not retrievable.

There is one loss that is irreversible.

The loss of time.

Therefore ‘time’ as a resource has to be very strongly guarded.

Repeated slips in the spiritual path? || Acharya Prashant, on Nitnem Sahib (2019)

It does not come easily to the mind to be self-reflective.

Therefore, the mind has to be trained and taught.

But it comes very easily even to the uneducated mind to gape and grope. Look at things outside, and then go for them.

But does it equally easily to the mind to turn inwards and be self-reflective?

That does not come.

We are designed that way.

Neither can the fingers hold the Truth, nor is the mind designed to seek the Truth.

Can the Guru assure you of liberation? || Acharya Prashant, on Nitnem Sahib (2019)

God remains present, but never obtrusive.

He lets the ego take it’s time, He lets the ego choose on it’s own.

He may send messengers, he may create conditions.

He may knock, he may show the Light.

But he would never decide on your behalf, or live your life on your behalf.

That’s the choice you have to make – how to live.
