The Nisargadatta Gita by Pradeep Apte - Part 76

read by James Traverse

The Nisargadatta Gita
Pradeep Apte 
76. From non-being to being, how is it known? By the knowledge I am.
Stay there in the I am, then youll go back from being to non-being.

The way in is the way out, from the unmanifest to the manifest, from absence to presence,
from non-being to being.

How is this so?

It is the knowledge I am, which, when it spontaneously appears, makes this possible.

 So the I am is the connection or gateway in, thus it must also be the means on
 disconnection or the gateway out.

But, for this reversal to occur you have to be in the I am, the feeling of the wordless
  I am must completely engulf you, only then will you be free from its clutches and
  enter non-being.
