The Seeker Is He. Who?


The seeker is he who is in search of himself.
Give up all questions except one: ‘Who am
I?’ After all, the only fact you are sure of is that
you are. The ‘I am’ is certain. The ‘I am this’ is
not. Struggle to find out what you are in reality.
To know what you are, you must first
investigate and know what you are not.
Discover all that you are not — body,
feelings, thoughts, time, space, this or that —
nothing, concrete or abstract, which you
perceive can be you. The very act of
perceiving shows that you are not what you
The clearer you understand that on the level
of mind you can be described in negative
terms only, the quicker will you come to the
end of your search and realize that you are the
limitless being.
