Você não pode dizer verdadeiramente que “isso é o que eu sou, não faz o menor sentido”: Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

‘I am’, is enough to heal your mind and take you beyond. Just have some trust. Stop searching, and see — it is here and now — it is that ‘I am’ you know so well. You cannot meaningfully say ‘this is what I am’. It just makes no sense.

‘I am’ is first-hand and needs no proofs. Stay with it. Be content with what you are sure of. And the only thing you can be sure of is ‘I am’. Stay with it, and reject everything else.

This is Yoga.

Go back to that state of pure being, where the ‘I am’ is still in its purity before it got contaminated with ‘this I am’ or ‘that I am’. Your burden is of false self-identifications — abandon them all.

Don’t you see that it is your very search for happiness that makes you miserable? Try the other way: indifferent to pain and pleasure, neither asking nor refusing, give all your attention to the level on which ‘I am’ is timelessly present. Soon you will realize that peace and happiness are in your very nature and it is only seeking them through some particular channels, that disturbs.
~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
