Who is the real me?

Deepak Chopra
Alternative & Complementary Medicine
If you strip away all the distractions of life, something yet remains that is you. This version of yourself doesn't have to think or dream; it doesn't need sleep to feel rested. There is real joy in finding this version of yourself because it is already at home. It lives above the fray, totally untouched by the war of opposites. When people say that they are seeking, it's this level of themselves that is calling to them in its silent, untroubled way. Seeking is really just a way of winning yourself back.

But to win yourself back you have to get as close to zero aspossible. At its very core, reality is pure existence. Meet yourself there and you will be able to create anything inexistence. The "I am" contains all that is needed for making a world, even though by itself it consists of nothing but a silent witness.
