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.

Don’t ask for confidence, ask for fearlessness || Acharya Prashant (2017)

The more the world will mean to you, the more afraid you would be.

The more your mind is full of others – and thoughts of others, and opinion of others, what the others can give, what the others can take, what they are saying, how they are looking, how you are looking to others – as long as your mind is full of this, your face will be dripping with fear.

More is the presence of world in the mind, more is the life full of fear.

More is life full of fear, more is the demand of confidence.

Unfortunately, confidence is no treatment for fear.

Searching for the beloved? || Acharya Prashant, on Guru Kabir (2018)

So, let the one who is really thirsty, fly over up to the skies.

And there, he shall be really quenched.

Once, you are there, you will forget all about the earthly pleasures and attachments.

The body will still remain on the Earth, but you will remain with your Beloved.

And that’s the way of living.

Let the body belong to the Earth, you stay belonging to your Beloved.
