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.

Are you really so helpless? || Acharya Prashant, on Guru Granth Sahib (2019)

Do the utmost that you must do in any situation, and you will find that there is just Joy of right action.

Wails and tears are for those who are guilty of abdicating their responsibility.

If you are fulfilling your responsibility, your responsibility will consume you fully.

It will extract the last bit of energy out of you.

Even to weep, you require some energy; even to complain, you require some time.

If you are really dedicating all your energy rightly, how are you left with energy to weep?

If you are managing to shed tears, it only means that you are a thief.

You have stolen away some energy, and reserved it for weeping and tears.
