Nisargadatta Gita << previous quote     next quote >>
The absence of ‘I am’ is not experienced by ‘someone’; it has to be understood in a manner as the experiencer and experience are one.

You are so deeply rooted in duality that you always feel that there would be ‘someone’ who would experience the absence of ‘I am’ or nothingness or the void or the space. It is impossible for the mind to conceive of a state of non-duality because it can function only in a dual or subject-object mode. Thus, obviously, the mind would have stop or you have to transcend the mind and for that you would have to come to the ‘I am’ which is point from where the mind began. When you abide in the ‘I am’, a moment comes when it disappears and then the experiencer and the experience merge and what remains is your true natural state, beyond words or description.
