Externally you may be comparable but Essentially you are beyond comparison || Acharya Prashant (2015)

The ability is there; a perfect ability is there. It is just that, you did not allow the ability to take expression.

Only expressions can be compared. Ability is incomparable. It is immeasurable. It is so vast and immense that there is no point trying to compare it.

And you do not even know how able you are. Most of you have no sense of your great abilities. We live in a needless inferiority.

Do you know how strong, capable, powerful and able you are? You do not know.

You only have an idea of yourself, a concept of yourself, which is mostly a borrowed concept. And that concept tells you that you are limited, small and pity.

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.”

Why do we choose to suffer silently? || Acharya Prashant (2015)

Why must you be so inconsiderate, so rude? Why do you inflict torture upon torture on yourself; everyday? Many of you, after this session, will go back to places where you will be inflicting torture upon yourself. Don’t you know that? Can’t you change that? What is this slavery? What is this helplessness?

Your first obligation is towards yourself. All other obligation flow from there. If the first is not being met, the other obligation, obviously cannot be met. The first has to be given its proper place. The first is you.
