As long as you do not see

As long as you do not see that it is mere habit,
 built on memory,
 prompted by desire,
 you will think yourself to be a person -
 living, feeling, thinking, active, passive, pleased or pained. 
Question yourself, ask yourself.
 'Is it so?'
 'Who am I'?
 'What is behind and beyond all things?'
 And soon you will see your mistake.
 And it is in the very nature of a mistake to cease to be, when seen.
~ Nisargadatta Maharaj
