The difference between realization and escapism? || Acharya Prashant (2017)

Drop all these concepts that only the one who has tasted the world fully, only he can be spiritual. No, not at all. You can be the biggest loser and yet you can be spiritual. There is no formula in this regard. Buddha is immensely wealthy as the son of the king and Kabir & Raidas are poor people, how does it matter? One is a man let’s say Farid, the other is a woman. How does it matter? It doesn’t matter at all where you are on the circle. We have had fifteen years olds and we have Eighty years olds. We have had fifteen year old people who have been said to be realized and we have Lao Tzu who was said to be eighty four when he was born. How does it matter? Wherever you are located in the world, you can always move to the center.

Should one strive for fame and popularity? || Acharya Prashant (2014)

Do not make those decisions considering that how they would be perceived by society or friends.

Do not make those decision considering what the convention has been.

Look afresh at them.

Don’t go by the traditional definitions of good-bad, right-wrong, big-small, acceptable-unacceptable.

What comes from your intelligence, only that is acceptable. Everything else is totally unacceptable.

On Lao Tzu: The Real will never be something that you can be conscious of || Acharya Prashant (2016)

Spare the real.

The real will happen on its own.

It is already happening.

Take care of the peripherals. Let the mind be involved in the small matters of life.

When the mind starts thinking about the essential, then the mind reduces the essential to a mental concept.

In small matters of life, be as clever and calculative as you want to be; only in the small matters.

In everything that really matters, live by the heart—Do not calculate, do not be so clever; let innocence decide for you.

You are a Lao Tzu when you don’t have a Lao Tzu as your ideal || Acharya Prashant (2016)

You may have Lao Tzu as an ideal.

Whom did Lao Tzu have as an ideal?

We have Lao Tzu as an ideal and yet we are nowhere close to Lao Tzu, are we?

Lao Tzu had no Lao Tzu as ideal, and yet he was Lao Tzu.

From chaos to zeroness – the ascending levels of conciousness || Acharya Prashant (2015)

THE WAY

‘The way’ is not for those who think about it.
‘The way’ is not for those who want to walk ‘the way’.
‘The way’ is not for those, who approach it through their intellect and knowledge.
‘The way’ is a resistance-less movement, and hence it is no movement at all.

It is not for those whose mind resist.
It is not for those who do not surrender to it.
It is not for those who want to look at it with open eyes, because they want to size it up.
It is not for those who close their eyes, because ‘the way’ does not demand that.
It is not for the idiots, because they are ‘idiots’.
It is not for the intelligent ones, because they are ‘intelligent’.

What to do, to at least get a glimpse of it?
If you do anything in particular, you will resist the flow,
that is already available.
The moment you resist, ‘the way’ is lost in resistance.

After learning this much about ‘the way’,
for sure you are farther from it, than you were, before you heard.
‘The way’ is not for those who prefer hearing over walking.

Had you really loved ‘the way’, you would have been walking ‘the way’,
instead of talking about it.
Attachment, inclination towards discussion about ‘the way’
is a good indicator that,
‘the way’ is yet far away.
