Truth is dangerous || Acharya Prashant (2018)

Right association in itself can never be the cause of suffering.

Right association leads to a re-alignment of your associations. It is not as you break your existing relationships. Rather your existing relationships get aligned in the right direction.

It is not as if you give up your family or work or something. It’s just that now you align all of them with the Truth.

But this re-alignment will be resisted. Be prepared. One way to ease the whole process is to make it inclusive. Include more and more people in it. Bring them together, so that when the change comes, it is a change welcomed by all.

Otherwise, you will be a solitary crusader, and you will see needless resistance. That which can be done easily must be done easily because anyway there are a lot of battles to face.

Why then spend your energy in needless battles? Conserve your energy, it will be needed when the real battle arrives.

Teach this to today’s generation || Acharya Prashant (2018)

Teach the boys, and teach the girls, teach them that they donot exist to dance to the tunes of the body and the brain. Teach them that they are not chemicals to react to other chemicals called hormones. Unless you teach them this beyondness, every successive generation would be heavier, bulkier, more numerous and more ignorant than the preceeding one.

How to recover from a break-up? || Acharya Prashant (2017)

You do not want a person, so that he may cause you disturbance. When you want a person, you actually want peace and contentment through that person. Don’t you? Or do you invite a person to your life so that he may harass you? Why do you open your doors to somebody?

Because that person promises to be the vehicle of contentment, peace. Right?

You very well know, what you open your doors to. Are you opening your doors to contentment?

Contentment has more value than any relationship. Relationships are a medium, contentment is the end. Relationships are mere mediums. There are like roads, they must lead to contentment. They must contain contentment. If there is no contentment in the relationship, why do you want that relationship?

How to identify the right company for oneself? || Acharya Prashant (2013)

A prisoner who thinks that handcuffs are beautiful bangles can never be set free, who thinks the four walls of jail are walls of a beautiful palace will never go out of the jail and that is the deepest crime that can be done towards anybody.

There is only one way of looking at any relationship: Does it set me free?

When I am with that person do I get closer to myself or does he take me away?

These are the basics, whosoever is your friend will always bring you closer to yourself, your real nature of truth, of freedom and love.

Whosoever is possessive about you obviously does not love you, he does not brings you to yourself rather takes you away. Whosoever is attached to you, dependent on you or makes you dependent on himself, obviously he does not love you; because love is none of this and that person is not worth being with.

Acharya Prashant: Real communication can happen only from the Heart

The key to improvement is to realize that you are already at the rock bottom. Things cannot go any worse, we keep waiting for more damage, we say this much damage is acceptable.

You know, that is the nature of mind, everything in the mind is limited, so even your perception of the damage being done to you is limited. You can never know the full extent of your loss. In the domain of mind everything has boundary, so when it rises to figure out how much it is losing, even that has boundary, so it says I am not losing anything beyond that. No! You are losing a lot! And when you see that then these inhibitions and concerns become very petty then you say how can I stop because of these hindrances.
