Watch where your time is going || Acharya Prashant, on Nitnem Sahib (2019)

So be extremely cautious.

You have to be cautious towards the investment of all your resources, but among all the resources, we have repeatedly said that, the prime one is – Time.

Time.

Be careful about everything that you spend.

The other things that you spend can be regained, money lost can probably be regained, but there is one resource that is not retrievable.

There is one loss that is irreversible.

The loss of time.

Therefore ‘time’ as a resource has to be very strongly guarded.

Is the world just an illusion? || Acharya Prashant (2018)

Your constitution is such that you will receive only knowledge, though a True Teacher can give you something disguised behind knowledge.

When the True Teacher speaks then you keep thinking that you are receiving merely words.

But something else has also been silently, surreptitiously been communicated to you without your consent, without your consciousness.

Repeated slips in the spiritual path? || Acharya Prashant, on Nitnem Sahib (2019)

It does not come easily to the mind to be self-reflective.

Therefore, the mind has to be trained and taught.

But it comes very easily even to the uneducated mind to gape and grope. Look at things outside, and then go for them.

But does it equally easily to the mind to turn inwards and be self-reflective?

That does not come.

We are designed that way.

Neither can the fingers hold the Truth, nor is the mind designed to seek the Truth.

How to be excellent in one’s work? || Acharya Prashant (2018)

Ram is the source of all excellence.

All excellence.

Kabir’s excellence, Krishna’s excellence, the excellence of an astronaut, the excellence of a deep-sea diver, the excellence of a tailor, the excellence of a swimmer, the excellence of a professional, whatever. 

If you don’t have excellence in what you do, it is because you have been disloyal to Ram.
