Quotes from the book

What a liberation to realize that the “voice in my head” is not who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that. The awareness that is prior to thought, the space in which the thought or the emotion or sense perception happens.

Ego is no more than this: identification with form, which primarily means thought forms.

Make it a habit to feel the inner body as often as you can…. Body awareness not only anchors you in the present moment, it is a doorway out of the prison that is the ego.

Nonreaction to the ego of others is one of the most effective ways not only of going beyond ego in yourself but also dissolving the collective human ego.

All you need to know and observe in yourself is this: Whenever you feel superior or inferior to anyone, that’s the ego in you.

Strictly speaking, you don’t think: Thinking happens to you.

If you don’t mind being unhappy, what happens to the unhappiness?

It is through knowing who you are not that the greatest obstacle to knowing who you are is removed

If you can sense an alert inner stillness in the background while things happen in the foreground — that’s it.

Here is another way of finding inner space: Become conscious of being conscious. Say or think “I Am” and add nothing to it.

Being aware of your breathing takes attention away from thinking and creates space.

It is not the thoughts you are interested in, but the act of perception itself. Can you take the thinking out of the perceiving? Can you look without the voice in your head commenting, drawing conclusions, comparing, or trying to figure something out? …When consciousness is no longer totally absorbed by thinking, some of it remains in its formless, unconditioned, original state. This is inner space.

Take two or three conscious breaths. Now see if you can detect a subtle sense of aliveness that pervades your entire inner body.

A purely intellectural recognition or belief that “I am not this form” does not help.

Inner space also arises whenever you let go of the need to emphasize your form-identity.

Becoming conscious of stillness whenever we encounter it in our lives will connect us with the formless and timeless dimension withn ourselves.
