always I shine

Experience seeking is natural. It’s all we know how to do, until and unless we come to understand that experiences (no matter how profound or blissful) come and go, but the truth, which is ever present, and totally accessible here and now, does not come and go. It cannot.

So, if one has an experience, and it goes, then my advice would be to try and find out, who is it this experience occurred to? Is there ‘someone’ always there? That’s the first step, the first question, in atma vichara, (inquiry into the nature of the self.)

Always I am
Always I shine
