Nisargadatta Gita - Message of Nisargadatta Maharaj
with commentary by 'Pradeep Apte'

<< previous quote     next quote >>
Beware of the I am growing over your true nature and giving you the false feeling of being the doer.

The path is indeed slippery, even for the most advanced seeker. After understanding and getting stabilized in the I am without words, you may start getting glimpses of your true nature but here the Guru warns you to be very alert. Why so? Because the I am is indeed difficult to do away with. Quite swiftly and quietly it may grow again over your true nature and trap you and soon you would start believing that you are doer. This would bring you back to square one and undo all the progress that you had achieved.
