As our mind melds into the divine mind, our identity changes.
The center of our thought-system is our Identity. What defines our identity, defines our thought-system. Therefore, when our identity changes, our entire thought-system follows.
The Spirit of Truth’s teachings center around who we believe ourselves to be. We begin our spiritual journey believing certain characteristics define us and end up believing their opposites are true and immutable. We shift from I am weak, to I AM strong, from I am unholy, to I AM holy, from I am unloving, to I AM love, and so on. This metamorphosis of mind comes about by the perfect and meticulous instruction of the Spirit.
What we presently hold in our consciousness as true about ourselves, our reality reflects. As we hold the attributes of our sacred Self as being present within us now, they begin to manifest outwardly. As our mind begins to perceive and think from these attributes, not just thinking about them, then it begins to project their reflection.
We manifest what we believe we are right now, not what we think we’ll be in the future. Truth is right now, in the present moment, because Truth always is and in Truth the present moment is all there is.
“I am” is the unifying name of us all; you, me, and God. We all call ourselves “I am” … then attach whatever characteristics to this name. It isn’t our physical name alone, like Rachel, that defines us but much more importantly our shared name, “I am” and what we attach to it because what we attach to “I am” for ourselves, we associate to others, and we shape our understanding of who is God and what is Truth around those characteristics.
In the Truth of oneness with our Source, the characteristics of God (I AM Holy, I AM Peace, I AM Love, etc.), are also our characteristics as we are immortal fractals of our Source, God. In Truth, I am peace, you are peace, God is peace; all is one. What varies is our individualized expressions of the underlying attribute. If an attribute isn’t true for God, it isn’t true for ourself or others. Though God, as the Source, possesses these characteristics in a way that is beyond our knowing, how we experience God as our Father, as our Source, is through the characteristics we share with Him. For example, to truly know the love of God is to be the love of God. It’s an incredibly beautiful intimacy of knowing.
As we own these characteristics, through divine emergence they reflect outwardly, although we don’t know the specific forms they will take. For example, when our peace is an extension of God’s peace, we don’t know the exact form it will take because the form serves the highest good for all. Whatever forms are used to orchestrate perfect peace for all are beyond our conscious knowing. Therefore, we have to let go of forms and simply focus our attention on “I Am peace”.
The characteristics of God are already a part of us, they are our sacred Self. We mistakenly believed ourselves to be something opposite and therefore our mind created a false reflection of our identity. In embracing the Truth of our true Identity, we consciously release all we thought we once were that isn’t of Truth. We release the forms that these false attributes projected outward, and we put our faith in who we know ourselves to be in Truth, and we become who we’ve always been.
Vision begins within. Enlightened eyes only see the Truth. In oneness, our shared name is “I Am.”
“And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” ~ John 17:3
