42. Whatever you try to become that is not you, before even the words 'I am' were said, that is you.

Just look at this mad pursuit that you have been indulging in or have been conditioned to indulge in by society: 'I am so-and-so', 'I must become this' or 'I must become that'- ambition, status, name, fame and what not! It's quite unnatural; you are trying to become what you are not. Even before you could say or feel the 'I am', you are! This feeling 'I am' has appeared on your True state and is dependent, transient and false. The identification of the 'I am' with the body has completely tricked you and now you are trapped. Understand all this and get out of it.
