Nisargadatta Gita << previous quote     next quote >>
In the womb the knowledge I am is in a dormant condition. It is the birth principle which contains everything.

The knowledge I am is an assertive phenomenon and this assertion is a very strong one, prevalent throughout nature. The I am is there in the egg released from the ovum in the female and the I am is there in every sperm of the male rapidly running towards the egg in the female reproductive tract. When the sperms hover around the egg they are desperate to penetrate the egg and complete the process of the conception of another I am. Finally one of them manages to enter and fertilization occurs and a new I am is conceived. Thereafter it is a multiplication process forming the embryo followed by the fetus in the womb. Each cell of the fetus carries the I am and lies dormant in the womb and it is the I am that born. The I am contains everything and strongly asserts itself throughout the life of the body that is born, of course mistakenly believing itself to be the body!
