Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

26 Jul

The witness attitude is also faith; it is faith in oneself.. You believe that you are not what you experience and you look at everything as from a distance. There is no effort in witnessing. You understand that you are the witness only. and the understanding acts. You need nothing more, just remember that you are the witness only. If in the state of witnessing you ask the question ‘Who am I ?’, the answer comes at once, though it is wordless and silent.

— Nisargadatta Maharaj, from the classic ‘I am That’, p 303
