A Quote by shankara on adi shankaracharya, cosciousness, nondual, i am, brahman, and atman

"[I am] the nature of Pure Consciousness. I am always the same to beings, one alone; [I am] the highest Brahman, which, like the sky, is all-pervading, imperishable, auspicious, uninterrupted, undivided and devoid of action. I do not belong to anything since I am free from attachment. [I am] the highest Brahman... ever-shining, unborn, one alone, imperishable, stainless, all-pervading, and nondual-That am I, and I am forever released." - Shankara, The Upadesasahasri

A Quote by A. L. Kitselman on i am, self affirmation, and affirmation

The words "I AM…" are potent words; be careful what you hitch them to.  The thing you're claiming has a way of reaching back and claiming you.  MORE from ALK

A Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj on nisargadatta, i am that, i am, limitless being, who am i, struggle, not body, not feelings, not thoughts, not time, not space, not this or that, nothing, concrete or abstract, and not what you perceive

The seeker is he who is in search of himself. Give up all questions except one: "Who am I?" After all, the only fact you are sure of is that you are. The "I am" is certain. The "I am this" is not. Struggle to find out what you are in reality. To know what you are, you must first investigate and know what you are not. Discover all that you are not - body, feelings thoughts, time, space, this or that - nothing, concrete or abstract, which you perceive can be you. The very act of perceiving shows that you are not what you perceive. The clearer you understand on the level of mind you can be described in negative terms only, the quicker will you come to the end of your search and realise that you are the limitless being.

Nisargadatta Maharaj
