I AM THAT | CHAPTER 44 | NISARGADATTA MAHARAJ

|| < : BREAK THE SPELL : > ||

The " I AM " is in the world ; but it is the key which can open the door out of the world .


MAHARAJ : The main point to grasp is that you have projected onto yourself a world of your own imagination , based on memories , on desires and fears , and that you have imprisoned yourself in it .

Break the spell and be free .

QUESTION : How does one break the spell ?

MAHARAJ : Assert your independence in thought and action .

After all , all hangs on your faith in yourself , on the conviction that what you see and hear , think and feel is real .

Why not question your faith ?

No doubt , this world is painted by you on the screen of consciousness and is entirely your own private world .

Only your sense " I AM " , though in the world , is not of the world .

By no effort of logic or imagination can you change the " I AM " into " I AM NOT " .

In the very denial of your being you assert it .

Once you realize that the world is your own projection , you are free of it .

You need not free yourself of a world that does not exist , except in your imagination .
