“Who am I?” Don’t go on moving around the periphery with questions like “Who made the world? Why was the world created?” Those are all nonsense questions. Come to the basic question, the most fundamental question: Who am I?
Who? Let your consciousness penetrate into it, like a deep arrow going deeper and deeper and deeper. And don’t be in a hurry to find the answer—because the mind is cunning.
If you are in a hurry, impatient, the mind can supply you with an answer. The mind can quote scriptures; it is the devil! It can say, “Yes, you are a god, you are pure consciousness, you are the ultimate truth, an eternal soul, a deathless being.” Those answers can destroy your very search.
A seeker has to be aware of ready-made answers. They are available; from every side they are being supplied to you. In fact, your mind has already been conditioned. The answers have been given to you before you even asked the question.
