Am

“Abandon false ideas, that is all. There is no need of true ideas. There aren’t any. If you keep absolutely quiet, then concepts will be strangled to death. You are so used to the support of concepts that when your concepts leave you, although it is your true state, you get frightened and try to cling to them again. That is the meeting point of that immanent principle and the Eternal, the borderland. Why is the intellect puzzled then? That beingness which you are experiencing is melting away. When that concept of “I Am” goes, intellect also goes. So the intellect gets that frightening experience of “I am going”. Just watch that moment. One who feels “I am dying” is not your true state. Your true state is beyond the primary concept of “I Am”.”  ~Nisargadatta Maharaj
