Ramana Maharshi on Self-Enquiry

Experiences such as “I went; I came; I was; I did” come naturally to everyone. From these experiences, does it not appear that the consciousness “I” is the subject of those various acts? Enquiry into the true nature of that consciousness, and remaining as oneself is the way to understand … one’s true nature. (Ramana Maharshi, SE, answer to question 2.)
