Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj - Do understand

Do understand that you cannot ask a valid question about yourself,
because you do not know whom you are asking about.
In the question 'Who am I?' the 'I' is not known and
the question can be worded as: 

"I do not know what I mean by I"

What you are, you must find out.
I can only tell you what you are not.

You are not of the world, you are not even in the world.
The world is not, you alone are.
You create the world in your imagination like a dream.

As you cannot separate the dream from yourself,
so you cannot have an outer world independent of yourself.
You are independent, not the world.
Don't be afraid of a world you yourself have created.
Cease from looking for happiness and reality in a dream and you will wake up.
You need not know 'why' and 'how', there is no end to questions.
Abandon all desires, keep your mind silent and you shall discover.
