The Nisargadatta Gita by Pradeep Apte - Part 98

read by James Traverse

The Nisargadatta Gita
Pradeep Apte 

  98. In deep meditation, infused only with the knowledge ‘I am’, it will be
  intuitively revealed to you as to how this ‘I amness’ came to be.
   The Guru once again highlights the importance of meditation for the ‘Sadhak’ (aspirant); and this,
 too, is not something to be done casually but in a very deep way.

 What is meant by deep?

  Deep means that you know nothing but the sense ‘I am’ for a prolonged, uninterrupted period of time.

Success may or may not come early, but come it will if you are completely infused with the knowledge ‘I am’
with enormous sincerity and earnestness.

 And what will be revealed to you?

 The ‘I amness’ itself will tell its story and you will come to know how it came to be.

 Or, paradoxically speaking, how the ‘I am’ never came to be or never was in the first place!

   It is always the Absolute that was, is, and will be forever; the ‘I am’ was only an illusion that appeared on it.
