I am so I am…

The Indian holy scriptures state that life is a journey towards realizing that I am I, not the body, but “I” that is beyond the ephemeral constituents and inconsistencies in the world. But often we fail to reflect this as we are caught in the vagaries of mind. Nevertheless, our country has indeed witnessed greats such as Ramana Maharishi and Ramakrishna Paramahamsa who in spite of being inflicted with the malignancies of the malignant cells were ready to sacrifice their afflicted portions, as they believed that they were just the being, “I,” neither the body nor the mind. I think it would take ages for me to realize that I am so I am, as I am still in the quest to know “who am I”?

Gist: Life is a divine voyage to know the real being, the consciousness, the I.
