In the investigation of the I that I AM, you only find God’s I AM. Universal I AM.
You will not find any personal I AM. The personal I AM is revealed to be a download and not the real I AM.
You will not find Santa Claus.
The Self is universal Beingness, transparent infinite aware presence.
The unhappy separate self impression will continue to arise as long as you have not fulfilled God’s invitation to awaken to your true nature.
In a way, the unhappiness you experience is akin to the canary in the coal mine.
It reminds you that you are resisting God’s invitation by honoring the perceived rather than the universal perceiver.
