Real Self, Please Stand Up

“To imagine that some ‘thing’ — food, sex, power, money, material possession, a lover, a child — will make you happy is to deceive yourself. Only something as vast and deep as your real self can make you truly and lastingly happy” — Sri Nisargadatta Majaraj, 20thcentury Hindu sage

Who is your real self? If you’re not sure, how do you discover it? And why does finding it matter?
