The “I AM Discourses”
Life, in all Its Activities everywhere manifest, is God in Action; and it is only through lack of the understanding of applied thought and feeling that mankind is constantly interrupting the pure flow of that Perfect Essence of Life which would, without interference, naturally express Its Perfection everywhere. The natural tendency of Life is Love, Peace, Beauty, Harmony, and Opulence, for Life cares not who uses It, but is constantly surging to pour more of Its Perfection into manifestation, always with that lifting process which is ever inherent within Itself.
” I A M “
“I AM” is the Activity of “That Life.” How strange it is that students with sincere interest do not seem to get the True Meaning of those two words. When you say and feel “I AM,” you release the spring of Eternal, Everlasting Life to flow on Its way unmolested. In other words, you open wide the door to Its natural flow. When you say “I AM not,” you shut the door in the face of this Mighty Energy. “I AM” is the Full Activity of God. Having placed before you so often the Truth of God in Action, I wish you to understand Its first expression in individualization.
The first expression of every individual, everywhere in the Universe, either in spoken word, silent thought or feeling, is “I AM,” recognizing Its Own Conquering Divinity. The student, endeavoring to understand and apply these mighty, yet simple Laws, must stand guard more strictly over his thought and expression —in word or otherwise; for every time you say “I AM not,” “I cannot,” “I have not,” you are, whether knowingly or unknowingly, throttling that “Great Presence” within you. This is just as tangible as if you placed your hands about the throat of an outer form, only with the outer form, your thought governing the hand, you can release it at any time; but when you make a declaration using the words “I AM not,” you set in motion Mighty, Limitless Energy that continues to act, unless it is recalled and the imperfection consumed and transmuted. This shows you the enormous power you have to qualify this Mighty Energy of God, and I tell you Beloved Students, dynamite is less dangerous, for that would but liberate you from the body; while these thoughts sent forth ignorantly and liberate you from the body; while these thoughts sent forth ignorantly and ungoverned bind you upon the wheel of re-embodiment indefinitely. Thus you can see how important it is for you to know what you are doing when you thoughtlessly use wrong expressions; because you are using the Most Divine Principle of Activity in the Universe — “I AM.”
Do not misunderstand me —this is no idle, foreign, or Oriental expression, but the Highest Principle of Life used and expressed throughout every civilization that has ever existed—for the first expression every Self-conscious form of Life gives is “I AM.” It is only afterwards, in its contact with outer, wrongly qualified activity, that it begins to accept anything less than “I AM.” Now, do you not see that when you say “I AM sick,” you are just reversing this Principle of Life, which is naturally all Perfection; thus requalifying it by your willful ignorance with something which it never naturally possessed? Through long centuries of willful misunderstanding, humanity has charged the very atmosphere about them with falsehood and unreality, for I need not say to you that when you say “I AM sick,” it is an abject falsehood in respect to your Divinity, which cannot be sick. Does this sound harsh to you? Then I say, think it over, and you will see what a blessing and release it can be to you.
I say to you, Dear Students, in the Name of God, stop using these wrong expressions of your Godhead, of your Divinity, for it is impossible for you to have Freedom as long as you continue to do it. I cannot speak of this to you too often: that when you really recognize and accept the Mighty Presence of God in you, there are positively no adverse conditions. STOP! I say to you, giving power to the outer conditions, persons, places or things, and in the Name of God, every time you find yourself starting to say “I AM sick,” “I AM broke,” “I AM not feeling well,” instantly reverse this fatal condition to your progress; and declare silently with all the intensity of your being—”I AM” —which is all health, opulence, Perfection, happiness, peace, and the power to recognize Perfection in yourself and everywhere else. When you think of the expression “I AM,” it means that you know you have God in Action expressing in your Life. Do not let these false expressions continue to govern and limit you. Continually remind yourself: “I live, move, and have my Being and all outer expression in the full opulence of God, made manifest every moment.” In thus reminding yourself of this Invincible, Unconquerable Presence, you keep the door open for Its pure, Invincible Essence and Intelligence to weave into your outer expression that wondrous Perfection. I plead with you, Dear Ones everywhere, do not continue to use these wrong expressions thinking that in some hocus-pocus way you may slide past reaping the result. IT SIMPLY CANNOT BE DONE.
Many of you know that they use the branding- iron on the Western Frontier as a recognition of ownership by the ranchmen. So great is my desire to have you recognize and hold fast to the active Presence of God in you, that I almost long for a branding-iron to brand those words— “I AM” —into your consciousness for constant use; that you could not be drawn off the recognition, acceptance, and use of that Mighty, Glorious Presence of God, which you are. I trust that all who may hear or read these words will feel the Power and the Mighty Conviction of this Truth that goes with them — leaping into action wherever expressed.
If at any time anything less than Perfection attempts to make an appearance in your experience, declare vehemently that it is not true, and that you accept only God, which is Perfection in your Life, everywhere manifest. As long as you give way to accepting false appearances, you will have them expressed in your Life and experience. It is not, Dear Student, a matter of belief on your part whether you accept these Truths or not, but they are the Law, proven through long centuries of accept these Truths or not, but they are the Law, proven through long centuries of experience, and are placed before you for your Freedom. Awaken to the fact that your thought and feeling in the past have built —created —the inharmony of your world today. Arisel I say, Arise! and walk with the “I AM”.
