67. Who can know the illusory state ‘I
am’? Only a non-illusory state can do so,
it’s the Awareness, the Parabrahman, or
the Absolute.
There has to be an unchangeable background that observes all the changes. ‘Knowing’ and ‘not-knowing’, ‘being’ and ‘not-being’, ‘I am’ and ‘I am not’, these are all states of consciousness that occur on an unchangeable substratum. Only a non-illusory state is capable of knowing the illusory state. This real or non-illusory state has been called Awareness, the Absolute or the Parabrahman. In its original state it is devoid of any content or experience, these occur only after the appearance of ‘I am’.
