Something present right here and now never moves.
Something is not affected by the changing situations, thoughts, feelings, emotions.
Something is stable as the world is unsteady.
Something is rock-solid as the sense of a separate self is a fleeting image.
What is this? What is it that never changes as every single "thing" changes? What is it that remains as every single "thing" comes and goes?
Isn't it your own presence?
As the body changes - you ARE. As the thoughts change, come and go - you ARE. You are the rock-solid, immovable and unchanging presence. And that presence is not hidden. It is absolutely intimately known right this very moment. You know "I AM".
I AM the body is an abstraction. I AM thoughts or I AM the mind is assumption. This is only learned, only believed yet not evident.
I AM is evident - Self-evident.
Remain in that I AM-ness - stay with it - follow the sense of "I". Does the true "I" ever change? Does the true "I" ever come and go?
Doesn't the world only appear because of that "I"? Doesn't the world depend on that "I"?
