Nisargadatta Gita << previous quote     next quote >>
Watching happens to the Absolute with the appearance of ‘I am’, only then it knows that ‘it is’.

The Absolute or ‘Parabrahman’ is at it is, formless and eternal. It does not require anything and is not dependant on anything. Watching just happens to the Absolute with the spontaneous appearance of ‘I am’. Just as you begin watching a dream as it spontaneously appears on you, you are not actually involved in any of the events that are dreamt. With the appearance of the ‘I am’ the Absolute knows that ‘it is’, although this knowing is of no use to the Absolute nor does it depend on it.
