When asking: “Who am I?”, all sorts of thoughts and ideas may arise in response. All such answers can be safely disregarded. Who or what is hearing those thoughts, including the original question which prompted them, but makes no reply? If the answer is: “I am”, who or what is hearing that reply? Within what are these questions and answers appearing?
Continue probing until the answer is intuitively sensed to be surrounding and aware of what is thought to be you, the questioner. Once sensed, notice that there is awareness of two opposing perspectives, one from the vantage point of being surrounded and looking outward, (which is likely a familiar perspective), and another of surrounding and looking inward at that which is looking outward.
When that which is looking outward realizes it doesn’t differ from that which is looking inward, then it’s seen there is only one looking, and you are that. With this realization, the questioner withdraws his opposing point of view, the imaginary little ‘me’ border is no longer enforced, (which was only ever just a thought thinking itself to be autonomous), and now one sees and experiences from a place of wholeness rather than division.
