BEYOND THE SENSE "I AM" - PART 20
This series is a collection of pointers or teaching aphorisms by Nisargadatta Maharaj on realizing Yourself beyond the sense “I Am”. If the sense "I Am" can be perceived, it cannot be Who You Are. What perceives? Who or what are You? Remember, to know Yourself, return to the silence before words.
You cannot transcend activity until you return to the Source. That you exist (in the ‘I am’ sense) is the illusion, its nature is to divide and appear as many. When the feeling ‘I am’ arises you attach reality to the objective world, which is constantly undergoing transformation and change. I know that it is ‘Maya’ (‘whatever is not’).
– Nisargadatta Maharaj
