Living joyfully with uncertainty || Acharya Prashant (2019)

You do not know what the next shock from the world would be, you do not know what the next news would be, you do not know what the next wave would bring.

If you do not like this helpless state, then you will have to live as someone who is very surely unaffected.

It is possible, because the tendency to feel affected is a choice.

It is a deliberate choice.

If it is a choice to feel affected by the world, surely the choice can be reversed.

Surely one can also choose to not remain affected by the world.

A life free of incompleteness and inferiority || Acharya Prashant (2014)

Can there be another way of living?

“Because I feel thrilled, so I do whatever I do.
Because I am already contended, so I do whatever I do”.

“Yes, I acquire knowledge. Yes, I read books. But I read books because I already feel contended.
Books can give me knowledge but the books cannot give me the base of my Being.
Books cannot give me something which is so important and already preset in me. That, books cannot provide.”

Can there be a possibility of living like this?
Won’t it be good fun?

Live fully, die fully, and then come alive, again, and again… || Acharya Prashant (2013)

A Zen monk has said that, “When I eat, I eat; when I walk, I walk; when sleep, I sleep.”
We live in a different way.
When we walk then we are talking in our heads.
When we are eating then we are planning ‘when am I going to study’.
And there is a great deal of parallel actions going on, obviously which is imaginary.
In reality, actions can never be parallel.
Existence does not allow multi-tasking. It says, “One thing at a time.”

Even when you are lost, you are already Home

Truth is the beginning and finality in which you are always located even when you are thinking that you are away from the Truth. Truth is that which you are even when you are totally committed to the false.

Deep peace is what we are even when we are totally restless. Complete understanding is what we are even when we are identified with ignorance.

You can never reach the Truth because you are never outside the Truth. Home cannot be a destination. Home is where you always are. You don’t have a choice there. Inexorably, inevitably you are there.
