Q: Aren't I supposed to always know the truth of my being?
A: You are present and aware. This is undeniable. It is not to be known or sought as if it is some special object or state. It is the ever-present basis of all experiences. How many thoughts can you have without the presence of awareness? It is so evident that it does not even need to be known, really. It is pointed out and simply acknowledged. Without thinking, seeking, or finding, you are that.
