Nisargadatta Maharaj - Because I am, all is.”

“Reality is neither subjective nor objective, neither mind nor matter, neither time nor space. These divisions need somebody to whom they happen, a conscious separate center. But reality is all and nothing, the totality and the exclusion, the fullness and the emptiness, fully consistent and absolutely paradoxical. You cannot speak about it; you can only lose yourself in it. When you deny reality to anything, you come to a residue which cannot be denied. All talk of jnana (knowing) is a sign of ignorance. It is the mind that imagines that it does not know and then comes to know. Reality knows nothing of these contortions. Even the idea of God as the creator is false. Do I owe my being to any other being? Because I am, all is.”
