Knowing the Self…

is being the Self, and being means existence, one’s own existence.  No one denies one’s existence any more than one denies one’s eyes, although one cannot see them.  The trouble lies with your desire to objectify the Self, in the same way as you objectify your eyes when you place a mirror before them.  You have been so accustomed to objectivity that you have lost the knowledge of yourself, simply because the Self cannot be objectified.

-Ramana Marharshi from Be As You Are
