“When you realize that the distinction between inner and outer is in the mind only, you are no longer afraid..”

~Nisargadatta Maharaj, ‘I am That’.

[Questioner:] Such realization comes and goes with me. I have not yet reached the immutabilty of absolute completeness.
[Maharaj:] As long as you believe so, you must go on with your sadhana (practice), to disperse the false idea of not being complete. Sadhana removes the super-impositions. When you realize yourself as less than a point in space and time, something too small to be cut, and too short-lived to be killed, then, and then only, all fear goes. When you are smaller than the point of the needle, then the needle cannot pierce you – you pierce the needle!
