Only the ego wants to correct mistakes. The fundamental mistake is ego itself. || Acharya Prashant (2015)

You will never own up your mistakes. You will be brought to a point where you will have no option but to see that you have been an idiot. You will be left option-less.

Till the time you have an option, you will exercise it. Till the time you have an option, you will only choose the ego because only the ego has options. What else will you choose?

Willingly, it is never going to happen. Never, ever! And those for whom it is happening willingly, it is not really happening. If it is happening willingly for you, then it is not really happening. Then it means that it is a part of your internal conspiracy.

Why can’t I stop cheating myself? || Acharya Prashant (2015)

Pleasure thrives only when you do not understand it. It gets its sustenance from darkness. You don’t want to kill it; you just want to know it. And to know it, you throw some light upon it and you find that the pleasure is gone. Try that! Next time when you are drawing pleasure from something or somebody or some action, stop and look at it. No, you don’t have to condemn it, not justify it. Just look at it. Look at it and you may find that pleasure is no more.

If others can predict you, others will enslave you || Acharya Prashant (2015)

Desires are bad deals. To get something which is worth five rupees; you trade away something which is worth, Five Crore. To earn bread and butter, you trade away your precious life. To earn a little bit respect and acceptability, you trade away your precious youth. Never say, I have earned something in the world; earning is such an illusion. What you really have, you do not earn and with the world, whatever you get you get through trading, not through earning; it’s just barter.
