Nisargadatta Gita << previous quote     next quote >>
Before you occurred to yourself as ‘I am’ you were the highest - Parabrahman – now, until the impurity of ‘I am the body’ goes stay put in the ‘I am’ quietude.

You would have to apply your mind and go back to the moment when you first came to know that ‘you are’ or the ‘I am’ appeared on you. Now just wait here…prior to this what were you? Recede further…prior to conception what or where were you? Nothing! That’s it! You were the highest, the Absolute or the Parabrahman. It’s only this total absence that doesn’t require anything, is formless, free and above all. On this stateless state appeared the ‘I am’ and it caught hold of the body and believed ‘I am the body’. This very idea is an impurity, do away with it and abide in the stillness and silence of the pure ‘I am’ without words, only then you stand a chance of reaching your true identity.
