Look to this day!
For it is Life, the very Life of Life.
In its brief course lie all
the verities and realities of your existence:
the bliss of growth;
the glory of action;
the splendor of beauty.
For yesterday is but a dream,
and tomorrow is only a vision.
But today, well lived, makes every yesterday
a dream of happiness,
and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day!

As each thought arises, one must be watchful
and ask to whom is this thought occurring.
The answer will be to “me”.
If you enquire ‘Who am I?’ the mind will return
to the source from whence it is issued.
The thought which arose, will also submerge.

Kiranji antwoordde: “The right answer is silence. There is no answer to this question. The answer that you get to this question most of the time is from the knowledge that you have about yourself. Then you reach that point when this knowledge about yourself ceases and knowing dawns upon you; there is no word which can express who you are. There is just silence. You are that silence. You are that nothingness. There are a lot of labels that you have coined from your language, your profession, your acquaintances, your relations, all the conditioning that you have, but these are not the right answer. Your question is ‘Who am I?’ I would say that the I dissolved and that there is nobody there. There is nobody. There is no I. There is nobody there. That is my answer.”

“De Stilte draagt de muziek – en ook de woorden. Ze is als de Bron waaruit zowel woorden als muziek kunnen vloeien. Zonder haar was alles een dwaas geraas en gedaas. Zij is de kruik waaruit de wijn kan worden gedronken, het vat waarin hij rijpt. In de Stilte hoort men de Tijd, vermoedt men de Oorsprong - tussen de regels begrijpt men een gedicht.

Self is what you are.
You are That Fathomlessness
in which experience and concepts appear.
Self is the Moment that has no coming or going.
It is the Heart, Atman, Emptiness.
It shines to Itself, by Itself, in Itself.
Self is what gives breath to Life.
You need not search for It, It is here.
You are That through which you would search.
You are what you are looking for!
And That is All it is.
Only Self is.
