Before being a man or a woman, I AM.
Before being a father or mother, I AM.
Before being any thing, I AM.
I AM is undefined and non descript.
Yet, nothing can be without I AM.
Like gold takes the form of a necklace, ring or bracelet, the I AM, while remaining infinite, eternal and formless aware presence, takes the shape of a body, a world and a mind.
The forgetfulness of I AM via I am this or that is the human condition engulfed in a world body mind model.
The recollection of I AM and the contemplation of its infinity and universality is the spiritual path that we refer to as the return home or the revelation of truth, of our essential nature.
The home that I AM and never left.
