If you seek REALITY you must set yourself free of all backgrounds , of all cultures , of all patterns of thinking and feeling . Even the idea of being man or woman , or even human , should be discarded .
IGNORE THE MIND the way you disregard the crowd you encounter in the streets .
The " I AM " is in the world ; but it is the key which can open the door out of the world . . . Once you realize that the world is your own projection , you are free of it .
The DIMENSIONLESS MAP FOR SELF-REALIZATION can be extremely useful when consulted while reading along with the book I AM THAT and serves the purpose of getting the fundamentals right .
Nothing stops you but preoccupation with the outer which prevents you from focussing the inner . It cannot be helped , you cannot skip your sadhana .
If you try to understand the unmanifested with the mind , you at once go beyond the mind ; it is like when you stir the fire with a wooden stick — you burn the stick .
