I AM

 Erica (@ericaleeper)7 years, 5 months ago

I’m reading Eckhart Tolle’s book The Power of Now. And It has me confronted with trying to understand the reality of ..well reality. He describes this indescribable feeling as I am and Being. The state of “enlightenment.” It cannot be understood mentally. It is not within the mind, it is within YOU. So having never truly experienced this state of overwhelming state of peace and realization and I AM, I am, or more accurately, my mind is having a hard time FULLY grasping the reality of his words. I cannot fully understand until I’ve learned to quite and control the my mind, so I can turn it off and see what’s left, as it cannot be understood mentally. I am curious who has experienced the I AM feeling, also if there is anyone who has not only had a short experience of it but actually has complete control over there mind and lives in the awarness of the TRUE reality. If so please write about the experience. One because there so inspiring to read and two I may want to ask some questions, as I go deeper into the book or just in general.

I have not read Eckhart Tolle’s book however I AM seems to be something the universe or God would say (as Biblically expressed). Perhaps to see I AM one would have to accept the concept of all…as in “I am all”. From there it may be a leap to express if an identity of “I am all” is accepted, then all that is…including you and all energy, are not separate…but one existing identity. Perhaps the only separation is observation…in as much that your energy observes other energy.
