The Prayer of I Am moves deeper into our awareness as we place our I Am Identity in the center of our creative consciousness, our imagination.
Imagination isn’t just child’s play, it’s a faculty of mind we use every day, all day. It’s the part of our mind that pictures our reality within, which in turn projects it without. It’s used to create outwardly what we believe is true inwardly.
What we imagine to be true is what we believe. What we believe in this present moment is what our mind projects outward giving form to our reflective reality. For example, we take what we’ve learned or experienced in the past and imagine a future. We imagine a future we want, and one we don’t. We imagine all kinds of things, images of our selves, and situations. Our mind is full of conflicting images and corresponding inner talk. The result is a chaotic reality of these vain imaginings fused together, much like a night dream. Our reality isn’t a static form, it consists of dynamic energy that changes according to our thought life.
With a lack of awareness of our true Self, we imagined a false image of our self. We imagined we were spiritually naked and lacked the divine attributes. Because we believed our vain imaginings, we created a reality of lack. In desperation, we created idols, which we then trusted to provide for all we believed we lacked; peace, comfort, joy, purpose, and love. Although we initially believed otherwise, idols can’t clothe us with spiritual attributes. Therefore idols leave us naked and subject to fearful imaginings that project a reality of lack. Instead of reflecting our true expressions, we reflected their opposites.
As the Spirit melds our mind into the Divine Mind, we are instructed in the truth of who we are. Where we once filled our imagination with lies and manifested a false image of our self, we now willingly choose to fill it with the spiritual attributes of our true Self, as an immortal fractal of the divine Mind. Comprehending our true Likeness as one made in the likeness of God, we are given a choice to see something different within, therefore the ability to manifest a different reality without. It gives us the ability to manifest a reality of peace instead of fear.
Through the faculty of imagination, we engage the attributes of the Prayer of I Am as our own, in the present moment. The Prayer of I Am brings all the images we’ve made about ourself to the Truth. By imagining we are the divine attributes, the mind resurrects the words of Truth giving life to our inner talk (cause), which then reflects truth and life into our experiential reality (effect). Because we don’t know how our present moment will express the spiritual attributes, we don’t concern ourselves with how these attributes will translate into our reality. We rest in divine emergence and imagine ourselves in the present moment as an expression of the divine attributes.
Our true Self is expressed as we let the Prayer of I Am settle into our powerful imagination. In this way, we become as a child and through our mind find entrance into the Kingdom of Peace. Imagination gives us the ability to rewrite the story of our life according Truth, and thus change reality as we’ve always known it. It’s a significant creative step within our mind that enables us to take the Light we perceive within and shine it outward.
