This is my spiritual journey. I am looking for the truth of who I am and who God is, unfettered by the traditions prescribed by my family, church and culture.

I AM

I have grasped the truth that I AM.

The first and only lie is that we are separate from God.

We have never been separate from God. We never could be. We simply believed we were, and acted accordingly.

I AM because YOU ARE.

I am perfect, holy, without sin. I have no guilt, no shame. I am whole and complete. I never needed to do anything to achieve this state, other than accept it. In this moment I have all the power, all the grace I will ever need. I just need to abide in it!

So mote it be!

One of my fav post by you so far....

"All that a guru can tell you is:
'My dear Sir, you are quite mistaken aboutyourself. You are not the person you take yourself to be."

When Nisargadatta Maharaj (probably the most famous teacher of Advaita) met his guru he was told "You are not what you take yourself to be. Find out what you are. Watch the sense 'I am', find your real Self."

He now teaches that by attending to the sense that 'I AM' you go straight to the truth, without wasting time in long drawn out practices, that would take you to awareness, only slowly.
