Nisargadatta Gita << previous quote     next quote >>
Be one with the Self, the ‘I am’, if necessary discard the words ‘I am’, even without them you know ‘you are’.

You have to totally identify yourself with the indwelling knowledge ‘I am’ in you. This knowledge ‘I am’ or sense of ‘presence’ has spontaneously dawned on you; it came without your asking or willing it to be so. And when it came it was wordless, it was just a feeling of ‘being’ and as long as it prevailed words were not required and life went on. It was only when your conditioning began that words and language intruded and soon took over. This takeover by words has been so complete that you cannot conceive of a life without words which now exist as concepts. So, in order to make your meditation effective, you are asked to discard the words ‘I am’, because even without them ‘you are’.
