The opening chant of the Aitareya Upanishad contains two verses that sum up the essential commitment of any honest, sincere, complete teacher, writer, consultant, professional or –for that matter– any person:
May my speech be one with my mind,
and may my mind be one with my speech.
Why would it be necessary to return in the current times to such fundamental sincerity of intent? It is not because we have created such a wasteland around us that makes us recoil in the face of truth?
A life that is in fear of truth is not worth living.
