Nisargadatta Gita << previous quote     next quote >>
Sitting quietly, being one with the knowledge I am, you would lose all concern with the world, then the I am would also go, leaving you as the Absolute.

You have gone so far away from the primary I am that you find it almost impossible to extradite yourself from the conceptual jungle that you trapped in. Most of us are so deeply enmeshed in this world that there is no time to even think of all this. Only those who are sensitive and observant or have faced a crisis in life makes one realize the futility of it all. Thus begins the quest of your true identity and the meaning of life. The Gurus advice is very simple, you have to first understand the I am as the primary concept and root of all the trouble. Then you have to sit quietly and become one with knowledge I am, as you do so you would lose all concern with the world. Then, quite spontaneously, if you have been earnest in your abidance, the I am would drop off leaving you free as the Absolute.
