One of the hardest and most difficult questions to answer on a human level. Yes we can answer by way of labels, I AM a Mother, daugher, son, Lawyer, Architect etc… we can answer on a spiritual level. I AM light, Spirit, Source, or Love. All would be completely acceptable, but what I am being reminded of is that when we answer the question I AM… in this manner, we separate ourselves from the truth of what consciousness is.
When we start to live from the place of Conscious Awareness, we realise that to box ourselves with labels (even spiritual ones) is actually the most detrimental and limiting perspective we can have of ourselves.
Eckhart Tolle summarised this up beautifully ;
Is it possible to let go of the belief that you should or need to know who you are? In other words, can you cease looking to conceptual definitions to give you a sense of self? Can you cease looking to thought for an identity?
The more you make your thoughts into your identity, the more you cut off who you are from spiritual dimensions within yourself.
Defining yourself through thought is limiting yourself. When you fully accept that you don’t know, you actually enter a state of peace and clarity that is closer to who you truly are than you thought could ever be.
Living from our heart is an open invitation to stop the searching, searching for how my story will turnout, searching for something like what our life purpose is, or what special gifts or labels we can put on ourself. Searching is always of the mind….
NOW is the time to stop, bring your Conscious Awareness into your heart centre and TRUST, that you are so much more than I AM…. more than you could ever possibly know.
So next time you ponder the question I AM? Join me and don’t be afraid to answer… I don’t know…
