2012 Ramana Maharishi

Every living being longs always to be happy, untainted by sorrow; and everyone has the greatest love for himself, which is solely due to the fact that happiness is his real nature. Hence, in order to realize that inherent and untainted happiness, which indeed he daily experiences when the mind is subdued in deep sleep, it is essential that he should know himself. For obtaining such knowledge the inquiry ‘Who am I?’ in quest of the Self is the best means.”
-The Collected Works of Sri Ramana Maharshi 
(Page 39, Samuel Weiser Edition 1977)
I am looking at the words in this  quote by Ramana Maharishi and his starting point
Word: Living
Adj
having life;  being alive; not dead
My Perspective:
This word is being used here by the ego-personality perceived separate from oneself – defined within a relationship based on the polarity of  the words living and not living, life and death.
===
Word: Being
Noun
person; human being
My Perspective:
This word is being used here by the ego-personality perceived separate from oneself – where the being exist separate from all life
===
Word: Long
Verb
to have an earnest or strong desire or craving; yearn
My Perspective:
This word is being used here by the ego-personality perceived separate from oneself – defined within a relationship based on a judgment where one is less than ones goal and the goal is more than oneself. This is of the mind.
===
Word: Happy
Adj
characterized by or indicative of pleasure, contentment, or joy

===
Word: Love
Noun
adoration; very strong liking

===

This word is being used here by the ego-personality defined by ones reasoning, thinking, feeling, will etc.
===
Word: I
Pronoun
the nominative singular pronoun, used by a speaker inreferring to himself or herself

This word is being used here to refer to oneself as the ego-personality perceived separate from all life.
===
Word: Self
Noun
 the uniting principle, as a soul, underlying all subjective experience.
My Perspective:
This word is being used here by the ego-personality – searching for that who is perceived separate from oneself
===
Self-honesty

We are not separate from words. We are the LIVING WORDS – one and equal as SELF.

New Quote:

To long for happiness and obtain knowledge about who we are  shows us we are separate from life. Working for what is best for all as who we are – one and equal as Life – is our true nature . June Roca
