Pleasures of consciousness vs pleasures of the body || Acharya Prashant, on Shri Nisargadatta (2019)

The pleasures of consciousness are not the pleasures of body.

The body has it’s pleasures, and consciousness has a totally different dimension of pleasure.

That which pleases the body, is not that which pleases consciousness.

But the two become one, because our consciousness is body-consciousness.

The pleasures of the body inflate the body, reinforce the body.

And the pleasures of consciousness dissolve the consciousness.

Such a  great difference.

Go to the teacher not in greed, but in love

You went to have some knowledge and you got it. And your tragedy is, you got nothing. The teacher’s role is not to burden you with more knowledge. I am talking about the spiritual teacher. His role is not to give you knowledge. You already have so much knowledge. But you have co-opted, even the teacher. And you think you are very smart, very clever. I went there and I got whatever he had to give. Now, I have exhausted him. Now he has nothing more to give me.

The fact is that if you are clever enough, you will exhaust every teacher very soon. Because the Truth is so simple. There is hardly anything exciting, complicated or new about it. What one teacher is saying, the other teacher says exactly that, maybe in another language, maybe using other methods.

Pure Self reveals itself to the fragments only as fragments

Our minds are full of notions and concepts, and one of those concepts is “Pure Self”.

When we can see that the mind wants to have an image of everything, including the Self, then it becomes possible to get rid of images about the Self.
