The Nisargadatta Gita by Pradeep Apte - Part 5

read by James Traverse

The Nisargadatta Gita
Pradeep Apte

5. You are sure of the ‘I am’, it’s the
totality of being, remember ‘I am’ and
it’s enough to heal your mind and take
you beyond.

 You are definitely sure that ‘you are’, only then
everything else is! Not before that. Since the ‘I am’
lies at the very base of everything and is common
 to all, does it not form the totality of being?

Throwing aside everything, come back to this sense
 of ‘presence’ or ‘being’ in all its purity and it will
heal your mind.

The use of the word ‘heal’ is very important as it clearly
suggests that the mind or whatever has been loaded on
the ‘I am’ afterwards is a pain, an illness that needs to be cured.

There is also here a hint towards something that is beyond
the ‘I am’.
