Real meaning of ‘I am awareness alone’

Meditate on this: ‘I am Awareness alone, Unity itself.’
Give up the idea that you are separate, a person, that there is within and without.

~ Ashtavakra Gita (Chapter 1, Verse 13)

Ashtavakra says, “I am Awareness alone, Unity itself.” The emphasis is not on the word ‘Awareness’. The emphasis is actually on ‘alone’. “I am awareness alone.”
