Facts and Imaginations || Acharya Prashant (2015)

You don’t have to check facts, you have to be in facts.

If you are finding that there are contradictions in your mind, then you are not in facts. It is not a question of checking your facts, they are not facts at all, you are living in imaginations. Get rid of these imaginations. What you have in front of you are facts. You don’t have to go and procure facts. You are — that is a fact.

Imaginations take time. Facts are present, instantaneous, here. You can imagine that you have eight legs, and now you have a contradiction, “How am I able to wear these normal trousers?” Then you will have to go and count your legs. Instead of counting your legs, if you face a contradiction, simply wake up.

A contradiction is a sure-shot proof that you are dreaming.

~ACHARYA PRASHANT

You are not Brahm, neither are you the Witness || Acharya Prashant (2016)

Is life not happening life on its own?

Do you really have to approach this moment?

What are you doing right now?

Do you really have to do anything right now?

And without doing anything haven’t this last one and one and a half hours not beautifully passed?

Have you really been doing anything?

Then, why are you so worried that if I don’t do anything, what will happen to life?

Life has its own ways and intelligence, you don’t need to worry.

~Acharya Prashant

How to respond to life’s problems?

Question: So, if you give attention to this monkey…

Acharya Prashant: The monkey is the attention that you give to it.
The monkey does not exist without the attention that you give to it.

The monkey is the attention that you give to it.

The resistance that you give to any particular thought is exactly the energy that that thought carries.

You give no resistance to it and thought will fall down on its own.

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.

What is the value of questions in the spiritual process? || Acharya Prashant (2016)

We question because we believe in the pattern. Hence, questioning can come to a mind that has first known the pattern. But this mind has known the pattern, but not seen the pattern to be false. So it starts feeling little uneasy when it finds the pattern broken. It questions.

There can be a mind lower than this—that has not even seen the pattern. This mind will not question. It is such a dumb mind. A mind that is not even conscious of the pattern will never raise any questions. And you would have met minds like those. They don’t question anything, whatever may keep happening they don’t find any need to question it.

Then there are those who question, those who questions believe in the pattern.

And then there are those who say, “Aah! pattern!” it may continue or it may break, how does it matter; just as a dream may continue or break.

Continuation of a dream makes it no more real than a broken dream. Then they just sit in silent; they too don’t question.

~Acharya Prashant

What you are looking for, is looking for you.
Your deepest desire, is desiring you too.
Just bow down, accept His call, and
You will be home.
For distance is imagination,
and helplessness untrue.
