Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Who am I?
âWho am I? I search for the I, the real I. Without the I,
of course, the ego can call itself the I, but who is the
real Iâ"without connecting itself to anythingâ"just the pure
I alone? Ask, who am I? I am a woman. What makes me a woman?
Of course, if I donât have this physical form, I canât be
called a woman; I must be a man. So it is the body that makes
me a woman? Am I a mother? Yes, I am a mother. So, before the
child, what was I? I was not a mother then. I am named mother
because of the child. I am Mrs. So-and-So. Ah, and before the
wedding? I was a Miss. So, likewise, ask yourself, âWho am I?â
Go back, ask one question after another. That is the way to
find out whom you are. You can sit and meditate, ask this
question, again and again. Analyze yourself. Know your Self.
âGod bless you. Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti.â
