Who am I? (Gems from Bhagavan)

Thoughts alone constitute the mind; and for all thoughts the base or source is the ‘I’ thought. ‘I’ is the mind. If we go inward questing for the source of the ‘I’, the ‘I’ topples down. This is the jnana enquiry.

Where the ‘I’ merges, another entity emerges as ‘I-I’ of its own accord. That is the perfect Self.

There is no use removing doubts. If we clear one doubt another arises and there will be no end of doubts. All doubts will cease only when the doubter and his source have been found. Seek for the source of the doubter, and you find he is really non-existent. Doubter ceasing, doubts will cease.

It is no doubt said in some books that one should go on cultivating one good quality after another and thus prepare for moksha; but for those who follow the jnana or vichara marga, their sadhana is itself quite enough for acquiring all daivic qualities; they need not do anything else.
