Where am I?

As we become increasingly focused in the here and now, in our true nature, time and space begin to vanish as reference points, to become discontinuous.

This may be related to the 'existential fear' felt by ego - where am I? When am I? What am I? Normally we determine these things through social consensus 'reality checking'. Yet we are not really in time/space at all, but time and space emerge from the here/now that is our true nature.

Things begin to appear increasingly vast - we are nothingness itself, located nowhere in particular and at no time, yet we are the ground of Being from which "where-ness" and "when-ness" arises.

And easily fooled by appearances.

Neither lost nor found, for whatever it's worth :-).

Re; Where am I

hi omkarduttta,
You are within the mind.You are present along with the mind and you are absent, when the mind is absent.Time ,form and space are within the mind. You and your experience of the world,time,form and space altogether is mind. The 'I' is not the self, but it is mind.

'I' which appears and disappears is mere mirage. The invisible substence and witness of the 'I', is the true self. Since you are considering 'I', itself as self, all these confusion prevails. The true self is hidden within the mind, but it is apart from the mind. Do not stop move beyond the 'I' to know what is 'I'.

Good luck. take care.
with respect and regards
