NOTES ON SPIRITUAL DISCOURSES | VOL 2 | SRI ATMANANDA KRISHNA MENON
|| 1085 | AS LONG AS I AM A HUMAN BEING , IS IT POSSIBLE FOR ME TO KNOW THE TRUTH BEYOND ? ||
The question presupposes that You are a human being .
I question that statement first .
Are You a human being ? Define a human being .
A human being is an incongruous mixture of body , senses and mind with the I-Principle .
All , except the I-Principle , are changing every moment . But You will admit that You are that I-Principle .
You , as that I-Principle , stand as the permanent background connecting all these changes that come and go .
That I-Principle is distinct and separate from the changing body , senses and mind .
Where is the human being in deep sleep , when You have no body , senses or mind ?
Certainly nowhere .
Still You are there , as that I-Principle .
Therefore You are not a human being but a changeless , permanent principle . As such , You can very well understand that Truth , beyond .
