Neti neti - Negating who we are not, is part of our basic yoga practice...

This sounds like being negative, but it is an easy and effective way to realize who we are not, and thus realize who we really are.

I am not this, I am not that.

I am not the body. I am not the mind. I am not the ego. I am not the intellect.

I am not the thoughts, the sensations, the feelings, the emotions, the thinking, the beliefs, the habits.

I am not the dreams. I am not the dreamer.

I am not the memories. I am not the imaginations.

I am not the likes and dislikes, the agreements and disagreements, the craving and aversion.

I am not the breathings, the heartbeats, the energy, the elements.

I am not the good qualities. I am not the bad qualities.

I am not happy. I am not unhappy.

I am not the calmness. I am not the restlessness.

I am not the anger, the hatred, the jealousy, the fear, the worry.

I am not the doer of actions. I am not the receiver of the fruit of the actions.

What is impermanent, constantly changing and doesn't belong to 'I', is not 'I'.

Keep negating until there's nothing more to be negate.

The One and only that we cannot negate after negating everything, is who we really are.

Om shanti.
