It’s alright to be cheated a little

Acharya Prashant
2 min readMay 20, 2020

Be surrendered. Be simple. Be innocent.

Live in your ordinary nature. That’s all.

Forget all these things — karma, dogma! Forget all this.

What if you knew none of these concepts? What if all the great books of the world are destroyed in some great fire?

Live simply, and that’s all!

You are alright just as you are. You cannot improve yourself. By trying to improve upon yourself, you only disfigure yourself. You are perfectly tuned machine, don’t fiddle with it. The perfect one does not send imperfections. You are alright!

Don’t try to become something else. And if you have become something else, then return to what you are.

Don’t be so clever. Let those eyes not be eyes of suspicion. Allow yourself to be cheated a little. If the world wants to cheat you, allow yourself to be cheated.

It’s alright to be cheated a little. It’s alright to be losing a few things than to be robbed of your innocence. Stay innocent!

Don’t sound too wise. Let yourself be a little stupid!

You have no obligation to act cleverly. You have no obligation to be respectable.
