We are not designed to get much, just be grateful for the little you get || Acharya Prashant (2019)

Man has not been constructed to live in Divine Peace.

Man has been constructed to live in chaos.

That is our prakritik (natural) construction, our design.

If you are getting Peace even if for a short period of time, just be Grateful.

Don’t be so demanding.

The more will be your Gratitude, the more you will get.

By expressing dissatisfaction over what you are getting, you will turn away even the little that you are getting.

Which direction to take in life? || Acharya Prashant (2019)

If you are eager to move, then you better move with discretion.

Use your suffering, as the compass.

Your suffering will give you the direction.

Be very very alert and sensitive to your suffering. Just do not surrender at the wrong place.

Do not start considering that suffering, and restlessness, and boredom, and loneliness, and fear, are the natural modes of life.

They are not. Never, never allow this belief to settle within you.

What is secularism? How to become secular? || Acharya Prashant (2018)

Who teaches you equanimity? Religion.

In Secularism, you want to be equanimous. But who teaches you equanimity? Religion.

In Secularism, you want a certain detachment. But who teaches you detachment? Religion.

In Secularism, you want to be respectful towards divergent opinions. But who teaches you to be respectful towards divergent opinions? Religion.

In Secularism, you want not to hurt the other, even if the other is holding beliefs, that go against yours. But who teaches you ahinsa (non-violence)? Religion.
