Identify only with pure beingness

Give attention to how this "I Am-ness" has appeared - then you will know.

Accept this identification only: that you are this manifest pure beingness,
the very soul of the universe, of this life that you observe, and presently
you are just wearing this bodily attire. Make a note of it; you have taken
down so many things in life, just for fun, why don't you take this down
also and see what happens?

See what happens when you look at the moon and know that the moon is there provided you are there; because you are, the moon is. This grand concept, this joy, you directly experience and enjoy.
