' You will find '...

"Go deep into the sense of `I am' and you will find.

How do you find a thing you have mislaid or forgotten?

You keep it in your mind until you recall it.

The sense of being, of `I am' is the first to emerge.

Ask yourself whence it comes or just watch it quietly.

When the mind stays in the `I am', without moving, you enter a state, which cannot be verbalized, but which can be experienced.

All you need to do is to try and try again.

After all the sense of `I am' is always with you, only you have attached all kinds of things to it- body, feelings, thoughts, ideas, possessions and so on.

All these self-identifications are misleading, because of these you take yourself to be what you are not."

-Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
