If you say: “I am Love” or “I am Free”, who is it that is saying this? If it is the body-mind-identity or person you have called ‘me’ … then it is NOT True because that entity does not exist. ‘It’ cannot somehow ‘become’ Real and exhibit the Love YOU Are just because it utters these or other similar phrases as a ceaseless mantra. The UN-real cannot become Real, it can only disappear as the false self it is.
When Jesus said: “Before Abraham was – I AM” … he was not saying a ‘person’ called Jesus existed before Abraham. He knew no such entity existed … that was only the disguise God was using to reach the sleeping masses. Just as IT/YOU is using your body-mind-identity to help wake up the slumbering God-SELF YOU Are. All your attempts to improve the false-self-identity so that it will one day ‘become’ God Consciousness are in vain because ‘you’ don’t exist. Only God or ONE exists … currently veiled by the conditioning that has sculpted this person you have called ‘me’.
It must go! This is what total surrender and Self Inquiry does - eliminate the ‘person’, NOT make this non-existent ‘you’ better. Recognizing this profound yet simple Truth will shave lifetimes off your quest for Real Freedom and bring you HOME NOW.
