WAKING, DREAMING, DEEP SLEEP AND THE ABSOLUTE - PART 3

The arrival of the knowledge ‘I am’, the waking state and the deep sleep state, all rolled into one ‘I am’, is known as birth. With this so-called birth all the observation started, prior to this where was the ‘I amness’? It was not there. 


This ‘I am’ principle is there provided the waking state and deep sleep are there. I am not the waking state, I am not the deep sleep – therefore I, the Absolute, am not that ‘I am’.

Remember, to know Yourself, return to the silence before words.
