The Sense of “I Am”

Processed with MOLDIV

When the mind stays in the “I am” without moving, you enter a state which cannot be verbalised but can be experienced. After all, the sense of “I am” is always with you only you have attached all kinds of things to it. All these self-identifications are misleading. Because of them, you take yourself to be what you are not.

Let go of your attachment to the unreal and the real will swiftly and smoothly step into its own. Stop imagining yourself being or doing this or that and the realisation that you are the source and heart of all will dawn upon you. With this will come great love which is not choice or predilection, nor attachment, but a power which makes all things love-worthy and lovable.

– Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, “I Am That”

Something to sit with in stillness.
