The following is an excerpt from a samvaad (dialogue) session with Acharya Prashant.
Question: What are the divine energy connections between man and woman?
Acharya Prashant (AP): All energy is the mind.
There is no other energy. Is there energy without matter? Is there energy without the world? When you have a lot of things to think of, then you only get muddling up. Let me just make it simpler for you — There is the Self, which is all and nothing, and everything else that you can think of, talk of, touch, feel, smell, sense is mind. Nothing is energy. If you can touch energy, it is mind. If you are thinking of energy, it is mind.
Do not talk of too many things. There aren’t too many things. There are just very few things, and they too get reduced to nothing.
Listener (L): What about these are chakras and all?
AP: And there is a hole here (pointing at the head)
L: Is not the energy more fundamental and its nature is interchangeable?
AP: When two things are interchangeable, nothing is more fundamental than the other — they are one.
L: Mulaprakriti is also a form of primordial energy…
AP: It’s all the mind.
Would you be talking about these things if you were asleep? It’s the mind, the consciousness, that’s all. Why must we make such big stories out of simple matters?
Spirituality is about seeing the simple in the complex. Do not complicate any further. Our lives are already very complex.
When I am throwing a stone at you, the stone coming towards you is energy. It is also hurt, it is also hatred, it is also ego, it is also time and space — they are all one. Energy is hurt, energy is ego, energy is time. When I am talking about objects, is there any object sans energy? So why are you talking about energy as if it is something special and different?
Objects are energy. The stone coming at you is energy. The passion for a woman is energy. Is there energy without a woman? They are all one. The stone that is coming towards you is both — ego and energy. It is mind and space and time and anger and nationalism and knowledge and everything else that you can think of or conceptualize. It is all.
