Who’s a Who, and Who are You?

“A person’s a person, no matter how small.”

“Today you are You, that is truer than true.
There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

~ Dr. Seuss


Horton Hears a Who



“[Self] Realization is of the fact that you are not a person.”

“You are That!”

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj


Shri Nisargadatta Maharaj


Q. If “A person’s a person, no matter how small”,
and a person’s a person, though tiny or tall,
When is a person no person at all?

A. A person’s no person, whether tiny or tall,
when s(he) doesn’t think s(he)’s a “person” –
any person at all.

Q. Doesn’t everyone think they’re a “person” –
whether tiny or tall;
Does anyone think they’re no person at all?

A. Nobody thinks that they’re anyone, tiny or tall,
when they don’t think anything – anything at all.

Q. But when they’re not thinking, who are they?

And who am I? And who are you?

A. To realize that we must stop thinking, too.
