In order to understand this you will have to go back again, apply
your mind and just try to recollect that moment when you came to
know that 'you are'. This occurred somewhere around the age of
three, but before that you were still functioning without any
problem from conception to the arrival of 'I am'. What about things
prior to conception? Have you ever given any thought to that? You
had no requirements whatsoever, even after the arrival of the 'I am'
in its nascent nonverbal state there were no problems. During that
period of the word-free 'I am' you were not aware of the body at
all, that is where you have to come back to and reside.
