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?

To go for goals is gloom, to fantasize a future is frustration || Acharya Prashant, with youth(2014)

To give importance to success is to invite frustration. To give importance to results is to invite boredom.
Whenever you will place emphasis upon an event in the future and remember, results are always in the future; you will lose out on the present. We do not do anything without expecting a result in the future and this future-centricity costs us deeply. It costs us the only thing that we have. All we have is this, right now, what is happening. And it takes that away.
And then we are bored. Life becomes insipid. There is no juice in it.
