Cover of I Am That: Talks with Sri Nisargadatta

 

….All I can truly say is: ‘I am’, all else is inference. But the inference has become a habit. Destroy all habits of thinking and seeing. The sense ‘I am’ is the manifestation of a deeper cause, which you may call self, God, Reality or by any other name. The ‘I am’ is in the world; but it is the key which can open the door out of the world. The moon dancing on the water is seen in the water, but it is caused by the moon in the sky and not by the water.

Nisargadatta Maharaj, from the classic ‘I am That‘, p 199
