Inspiration – Who am I?

who am i

“Give up all questions except one: ‘Who am I?’
After all, the only fact you are sure of is that you are.
The ‘I am’ is certain. The ‘I am this’ is not.
Struggle to find out what you are in reality.
Discover all that you are not – body, feelings thoughts, time, space, this or that –  nothing, concrete or abstract, which you perceive can be you.
The very act of perceiving shows that you are not what you perceive.”

~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Embrace the simplicity and the depth of your being today. Bring your self into focus.

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj has a wonderfully clear way of describing the complexity of our human experience, and taking us on the journey home to our true selves.

  1. “The very act of perceiving shows that you are not what you perceive.” — this is so obvious when we think about it, and yet we go in search of ourselves hoping to perceive ourselves, hoping to perceive what we are. If this were a logical position, meaning if it could bear fruit, then we would be no more than a percept. It took me so long to figure that out! Duh! H ❤
