We will start by settling down comfortably, and we will place ourselves within the observer, while observing either one part of the body or the thoughts, regardless of what is observed simply place yourself within the observer…

Remember that you don’t need to search for the observer, as the notion of « I exist » is placed within the observer, thus simply, I would say, let yourself be carried by the observation, without being involved in what is observed…

And I would propose, once you are located within the observer, to see whether you could put a distance between you and the observer, and, I would say, to observe the observer…


Well, it will simply be perhaps a feeling, a sensation, but effectively, being extracted from the observer to observe leads you to different perceptions, more subtle than those of the observer…

You can notice at that time that there is peace, quietness… and that what you are is placed within this peace, this quietness…

The notion of existing is still there… But at this point, you can say « I am », but you can add nothing behind… there is neither the feeling of being a person nor the feeling of being the observer, just « I am »…

If at a certain point, you are projected again into a person, allow yourself to come back to the source of the « I am », simply because this « I am » is permanently present. Without the « I am », you can’t observe, you can’t be a person. And there you can see that the « I am » is, I would say, Truth while « I am this » or « I am that » is a reduction of what I am. It’s a little bit like putting on a mask or projecting an image for us to believe we are this image…

If you are firmly within « I am », you can detect some markers: peace, quietness, as we said earlier on… the vanishing of the feeling of being a person. You can have a modification of the perceptions at the body level, as well as visual.

Should you feel yourself firmly within « I am », you can try to open the eyes… and notice that the vision is as blurred, as panoramic… If this is not the case when you open the eyes, reclose the eyes and stay deeply within the « I am »…

When you are placed within « I am », and that the feeling of being a person has vanished, therefore you cannot but recognize, by deeply experimenting it, that what you called the others, the other people, have also vanished. There are still bodies, functioning, but what you can see is « I am », whether you called it « I am » or the « Self » or « the One », no matter. The way you recognize yourself is exactly the same as the way you recognize what has been the others up to now. This is not a mental process, this is a pure feeling, a direct recognition: you are… at the end of the illusion of being a person, nobody within you and nobody elsewhere…

[ silence ]

You can, as the « I am » strengthens or rather your sense of the « I am » strengthens, you can notice that there is a strong expansion… an expansion that perhaps allows you to encompass the whole Creation…

Maybe you can acknowledge that the « I am » which is the source of your feeling « I exist » is also the root of the whole Creation, that all is within « I am », that all is « I am », totally…

This can lead you to acknowledge that you are the whole of the world, and that you can no more make any difference between you and the world, or you in the world…


Well, let’s stop there for today. Slowly you will open the eyes, while staying within « I am ». And, when welcoming the whole of what is perceived within « I am », there is no need to forget « I am » to be able to work again within this body. The body is an emanation of « I am », the entire world is an emanation of « I am ».

I simply draw your attention to the fact that sooner or later – maybe this has occurred already - the mind will try to retrieve this experience, and you will have the choice at that time to follow it, while letting re-emerge the sense of being a person, or you have the possibility of letting go. What would be the sense of trying to categorize, define what you are ?... And it is likely that in times to come there will be moments where the sense « I exist » will reappear within the person and this is where your vigilance is important.

You have two ways of living the experiences that are offered at every moment: either by living them within the person, in trying to favour some against the others, either by living them as a Grace that is given at every moment to check your positioning: are you, or do you put a load onto the back of what you are as a person ? Do you load a surname, a body, a story? And the Grace will systematically come to allow you, I would say, to check, to validate with you that simply you are, and will systematically present to you the topics to which you adhere, until you will simply have « I am ».
