No uglier than the most beautiful
No more beauitful than those whose eyes consider me ugly

No younger than the babe
No older than the ancestors

No brighter than the Genius
No duller than the fool

No poor than the King
No richer than the beggar

No more than you
No less than you

When there is no more shell
We are One and the same
Part of Brahman and all of Brahman

Beautiful poem.

BTW, even that in the poem cannot be said about consciousness (I Am). The closest may be silent or more precisely to be silent.

But the main point is: who is it that is conscious of I Am? Who is conscious of even this I Am which is still a mental state?
