I will give you the most important question that you have to ask yourself: ‘Who am I ?’ It all starts with this, at the same time, simple and most complex question. People took lifetimes to find the answer to this question. Sit down somewhere in complete silence and ask yourself this question. At this moment, your spiritual journey begins.
When you ask this question to people, the majority are going to answer: the body. When people say the body, I ask them: which body? The embryo? The baby? The adolescent? The body that you have now? The body that you had when you were a child, is not the same as the body that you have right now. Even the body that you had 1 month ago is not the same, so you can’t be the body.
Some people are going to say that they are the mind and that the mind is in the brain, that’s not true. If you sit in a quiet space and you close your eyes, how is it that you can observe your thoughts, emotions and images? Who is this observer? Who is this silent witness? Bingo, that’s you.
There is something that always was there and always going to be there: Consciousness. You are consciousness. Most people can’t grasp that consciousness is formless. If you are formless, you are infinite and if you are infinite, you are not in space-time and if you are not in space-time, there is no birth and death. These are illusions.
If you think that your 5 senses are the reality, you have a problem because that’s also an illusion. All your senses are less than 1% of the fundamental reality. What you see right now is only 0,005 % of the electromagnetic spectrum. Just think about it. You have to go beyond your 5 senses by closing your eyes. Only then you will break this illusion.
