I am is a recognition of being. It isn’t something that can be grasped or understood by the mind. The mind asks, “I am? What’s your point?”
Your mind has been trained by this world to believe that it is you and you are it. Therefore, anything outside the mind—anything imperceptible by the mind as a “thing” or “mind object” is considered uninteresting to you. Let us consider some of these “uninteresting” topics.
Becoming aware of being—either by going into the present moment, noticing your inner body, or channeling love—is not something the mind has any time for. Here there is not enough drama, nothing to debate or argue about, and nothing changes. I am is a knowing, a wisdom, a creative power and a perfect love that is beyond the mind’s comprehension.
It’s a good thing we are not our minds, because this belief dramatically limits us to a confused thought system of fear and suffering. In truth, the universe is made up of both “stuff” and “not stuff” (or empty space). 99.99999999% of the universe is empty space, and the same is true inside our bodies.
Even the concept of “nothing” is beyond the mind’s grasp. Try to think deeply about empty space and you will enter being, or the now. The mind is designed only to function on the level of matter—which is useful in this world but limiting.
The mind also cannot understand that time doesn’t exist—that everything happening is always happening in the now. Nothing has ever escaped the now. It is the only place where everything is, always has been, and always will be. Matter moves and changes form, but all movement is happening in the present.
The mind cannot understand eternity or infinity. The mind cannot answer what love is, what happiness and peace is, or where life originates. How exactly does life come from nothing and become something? What is life anyway?
The mind will never figure out what it was not designed to figure out. To master life, you must master love, freedom, health, wisdom, peace, creativity. No mind will ever figure out this realm. So we move more deeply into consciousness tomorrow and each day after that.
