“I am. You are. We be.” These words are from the song, I am by Bob Sima.
I was listening to this song on my way to the beach this morning, where I intended to go for a walk and spend time journaling. My intention is to start a new book since writing at the beach was how I wrote my first book, Live. Love. Engage.
These are my thoughts that I journaled today on the subject of “I am…”
We all are I AM. We are one with God. The only thing separating us from that reality is our Ego. And as the late great spiritual teacher Wayne Dyer brilliantly put it, EGO stands for Edging God Out.
When we ignore the ego and refuse to follow it, and tune into our heart, that is when we can reconnect with God (Source, Universe, whatever term you prefer). We can recognize the truth of our divinity if we hope to ever become truly united as people of God – not borders, races, creeds, sexual orientation – to unite as human BEINGS. And to unite with every living creature on this planet, including the planet itself. Because every thing we see, hear, feel, taste is life. It IS God.
We are light. God created light and saw that it was good. Light is energy. Light is life. Life is US!
I once was blind, but now I see.
How great thou art.
Thy words are a lamp unto my feet.
We are One in the Spirit.
You are the light of the world.
All of those song lyrics express the same thing: you and I and every being, hill, tree, cat, fish are all God. We are One. The sooner we can feel that in our hearts and in our souls, the sooner we can come together to create heaven on earth as it was intended to be.
Earth is God’s playground. But we’ve become the bullies in the schoolyard. It’s time to step up together to be still and know. To listen with our hearts and not our minds. To say, “Not my will, but Thy will. I am your servant. What can I do to be closer to You and closer to my neighbor?”
Because Jesus said we need to “love our neighbor as ourselves.” But if never love ourselves — loving God, we’ll never be able to love each other, and certainly won’t be able to love all the creatures on this big beautiful planet we call Earth.
