How do I realize that I am God?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

You should not go on saying, 'I am God, I am God'. People will put you in mental hospital. It is not a fact to announce. It is only an innermost realization.

There is nothing other than God. In this space, is there anything other than air or space? Air is in space, you are in space, I am in space, every cell in your body is in space. This is the realization.

Just know that nothing exists except that One thing, and that one thing is what I am, and what everybody is.

To feel and realize this, the heart has to blossom and that happens by singing. That is why when you sing, or when you dissolve in meditation, then what exists is only bliss and bliss is the nature of God!

When you are with truth, you are with God. When you are in a blissful state, you are in God.
