|41. On your true
state has arisen this subtle principle 'I am', which is the cause of
all mischief. No 'I am', no question of mischief.
This subtle principle 'I am', which is subtler than the mind, has
appeared on your True state. After it appeared it remained in a pure
state for some time and then began the piling up of words, language
and concepts. The 'I am' was now verbal and identified itself with
body, you became 'so-and-so' living in this world as a person. Your
mind developed and became a workshop of mischief, but the root cause
was the 'I am'. Now you have come back to that 'I am', the primary
mischief-monger, you meditate on it and realize its falseness and it
disappears. You have now transcended the 'I am' so where is the
question of any mischief?
