Peace that comes and goes is not peace || Acharya Prashant (2016)

You come back home and somebody asked you, “How did you spend the day?” And if you don’t have to lie, you don’t have to think what to answer. You just say something while you are unbuttoning shirt, while you are washing your face, combing your hair. You keep saying, because you don’t have to cook up anything. But if you have to lie, then it’s a tense situation, an internal stress is there. You strive to be consistent. You have to cook up a story that is credible.
You stumble. And if you don’t stumble then, you try to not to stumble.
It is an effort. There is a deliberation involved in this.

Is it difficult to drop the ego? || Acharya Prashant (2016)

Question: How to drop the ego? It’s an everyday struggle.

Acharya Prashant: The ego can never be dropped.

You can only get something that replaces the ego; that out-smarts the ego; that out-attracts the ego, that outpaces the ego.

In the name of ego, all that you stick to, you stick to that because you find it attractive. Now we may keep condemning the ego but the fact is that if you find something attractive, you will not drop it. You drop it when you will get something infinitely more attractive than that.

Pay attention to that.

~Acharya Prashant

When there is innocence in the Heart only then there is intelligence in the mind || Acharya Prashant (2015)

Innocence is that silence, that background that doesn’t change, no matter how much the voices change. It is that emptiness that remains no matter how many universes come and go. It is which sky that cannot be stained, even if you emit the entire world’s smoke into it. It simply cannot be dirtied.
