Q: As an individual can we go back to the source?
M: Not as an individual; the knowledge "I Am" must go back to its own source.
Now, consciousness has identified with a form. Later, it understands that it is not that form and goes further. In a few cases it may reach the space, and very often, there it stops. In a very few
cases, it reaches its real source, beyond all conditioning.
It is difficult to give up that inclination of identifying the body as the self. I am not talking to an individual, I am talking to the consciousness. It is consciousness which must seek its source.
Out of that no-being state comes the beingness. It comes as quietly as twilight, with just a feel of "I Am" and then suddenly the space is there. In the space, movement starts with the air, the fire, the water, and the earth. All these five elements are you only.
Out of your consciousness all this has happened.
There is no individual. There is only you, the total functioning is you, the consciousness is you
