What is the difference between soul and spirit | Mohanji I’ll try to distinguish between spirit and soul because there could be a possible confusion in this whole exercise. I want to segregate it just for the knowledge’s sake; it is not for writing an examination but for awareness. When I said spirit, the spirit
The truth about God and Spirituality | Mohanji We should never be deluded. True spirituality is not about sensations. It’s about stability. Please remember if somebody says, “I had great experiences”, and you didn’t have any experiences, it means nothing. When you are still, you are the experience; you will not have experiences. When you

We have patterns, right? Repetitive patterns. Some people say, “I’ve never experienced happiness in life.” Or some people say, “I’m continuously going through the same situations, one after the other.” Patterns – where does pattern come from? How do patterns happen in our life? Why are we discussing this? If you know how patterns happen, if you diagnose it well, you can come out of it.

Imagine we live for 80 years in this body. In 29,200 days, we complete this story. Within this time, you have to experience all that you have to experience with this body.

The mind’s job is to be restless; you need to accept that the mind is restless. You cannot do anything about it. But allow it to be restless and have nothing to do with it.

Suffering is connected to your waking state mind. Pain is connected to various factors such as injury, body, going through certain processes. Pain can happen, but suffering is your choice. Suffering happens when resistance happens to the pain. When we resist situations, when we resist emotions, when we resist people, places, time, we have suffered. But suffering is not a permanent thing. When you are experiencing pleasure, necessarily, you may not suffer. But sometimes even during pleasure, at the time of pleasure, we may suffer because we worry that this time also may end.
In this struggle of expression and experience, we forget our true nature. And almost always, we don’t remember. Even at the time of death, most people die with more desires, that means an inevitable coming back. They have to come back in order to complete – this is human life.

That would be your main goal – to fulfill them.
