The first time you asked ‘Who am I?’ you got the answer – Adyashanti



Published on May 3, 2017

Spiritual teacher Adyashanti says that we already know who we are. It is just that our mind cannot comprehend a state which is beyond its own definitions. So the moment we ask ‘Who am I?’ for a split second we experience the answer but we immediately get drawn away by the commentary of the mind: ‘This is not the Self, this is nothing special, this is not enlightenment, etc.’ The answer to that is to forget all the images and definitions that we have about enlightenment and consciousness and just be what we are.
