Look for the Self

The desire for self-knowledge is the most brilliant of all gifts.  Treasure it.  Protect it.   In the constantly changing world, look for that in you which never changes.  This is the Self, Brahman, God. There is no such thing as sin, or guilt, or karma. There is only ever-changing life and unchanging witnessing.  Awareness is above all, silent, passive and eternally awake and unchanging.  The light of awareness shines in your heart, and always has, but you sleep while walking and never look or see.  You must find your own way; any other way is not your way.  Be focused and determined.

Notes to myself while reading “I Am That”, P.495, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
