Does Spirituality advice men to renounce women? || Acharya Prashant (2016)

You must let the world proceed in the manner in which it would.

The body has its own intelligence.

The river knows how to flow.

The birds know when to wake up.

The grass is beautifully green on its own.

You don’t have to interfere, just as you don’t have to interfere when food gets digested in your guts.

You don’t have to interfere with your thoughts.

Thoughts keep tormenting us precisely because we resist them, we interfere.

The sage is saying something absolutely radical.
He is saying, “Let it be. Let the drama continue. You have no obligation to control anything. Your only obligation is to stand pure. Your only obligation is to not to get sucked in.”

When you chase something, you will get its opposite as well || Acharya Prashant (2015)

Whenever you see a thing, do not be captivated by it. At that very instant, remember it’s opposite. Be situated at a point, where you can look equally at black and white: together and in parallel.
Do not be swayed away, do not be taken in. And when you are bothered, resist the temptation of going to the opposite of your current state. It would be a great temptation, but resist.
When you encounter suffering do not jump to the other pole. Instead, remember that suffering comes when you are in between the poles, or at either of the poles.
Suffering is the result of forgetting the non-dual Truth. Suffering is the result of forgetting Advait (non-duality; oneness). That is the only reason why you suffer.

Why do we blame others for our mistakes?

When you are able to blame others, then you are able to earn certain rights for yourself. Those rights cannot come to you, if you do not say that others are in a position to harm you. Even the law agrees to killing in self defense.

Blaming is quite nice to the ego. Blaming is a good defense against responsibility. So that you do not have to do the right action; you can just blame somebody. To not to blame is to take the onus of Right action.
