...You cannot escape...You can only cease...

"Q(questioner): How is one to be free from the "I" sense?

M(Maharaj): You must deal with the "I" sense if you want to be free of it. Watch it in operation and at peace, how it starts and when it ceases, what it wants and how it gets it, until you see clearly and understand fully. After all, all the yogas, whatever their source and character, have only one aim: to save you from the calamity of separate existence, of being a meaningless dot in a vast and beautiful picture. You suffer because you have alienated yourself from reality and now you seek an escape from this alienation. You cannot escape from your own obsessions. You can only cease nursing them."

- Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (I AM THAT- Talks with Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj)
