How to get rid of addictions?

Do drugs come, and insert themselves in your mouth? Does the cigarette, unwrap the pack, rise itself and comes to kiss your lips? Or do you go and buy the cigarettes? The cigarette does not buy itself. Who is the buyer of the cigarette, why not talk about him? It’s not smoking that you want to quit, you want to quit that mental state that necessitates smoking. And if that mental state keeps coming, you will continue to smoke. But you will never talk about that mental state because that mental state is related to “I” and our entire lifestyle.

In procrastination, what gets postponed?

Why get the future in the future? If it is important, get it right now. Or admit that it is not important. What is important to you? Have you ever asked yourself what is really important? And I am not insisting that a particular thing must be important. If money is important, go get it! Why are you just planning about it? If money is really important, why are you sleeping ten hours a day? Go get money!

How to change one’s habits?

Man thinks himself to be very clever, he thinks that he will bring about solutions, he is eager to get solutions without first seeing where the problem came from. And the solution can never come from the same place, from where the problem came. We do not see, that we are the problem. We rather want to claim that we can be the solution. You do not need to bring about the solution, you just stop being the problem. No solution is needed.

On Khalil Gibran: Hidden tendencies have great power; but power of Truth is greater

Your very incompleteness expresses itself in the form of your body that is why the scriptures say that only incompletenesses are born. What is born in the form of a baby is nothing but incompletenesses; they say only desires are born, only desires are born, nothing else. And that is why that which is born is desirous since the first moment, since the first moment it is desirous—that body. And it spends its entire life just trying to fulfill those desires.
The weak and feeble and teary I – ‘aham vritti’ turns out to be so strong that it controls the entire life of the mortal ‘jeeva’. What is ‘aham vritti’? What is it? It’s a crying mass, weeping, weeping all the time — give me a partner, give me a sense of meaning, give me completion, give me wholeness. Such a pitiable thing, this I am is. But don’t consider it weak because this pitiable thing is running the entire world. Your entire life, this entire universe is being run by this pitiable thing.
You look at all the movement that you see in the world. What is that movement for? Anybody who is moving in the streets, anybody who is erecting a new building, anybody who is expanding his business. What actually is he trying to do? He is trying to gain some kind of mental completion, mental fulfillment that weak sense of ‘I am’ is trying to complete the circle. That weakness is this grand world. Never underestimate it.
