Q111. What are you when your body is not you?

A. Come again tomorrow.
I can’t tell you the answer today because I am not well today.


Come again tomorrow?
Don’t be fooled any more by the master.
His answer would be the same even if you were to come to him hundreds of times again.
If I were given the answer, I would say to him, “I am not asking him who is not well.”

  1. The Master deliberately gives answers which are illusory and relate to his physical body.
    Time changes and is different all over the world.
    How we feel changes and is subjective.
    The Master will give illusory answers until the student understands and explains that he is asking who the Master is when he is not his body.
