“I AM GOD.” Every time I bring this up in social media posts or videos, people, some not everyone, tend to disagree with this idea, which is highly popular within the spiritual community. And I definitely understand why this happens but let me explain what this means to me.
I do acknowledge the existence of a higher power, the source of all creation. I love God. I see myself in God. I see God in myself. I see God in you. I see God in everything and everyone. I see no separation. I see it all as ONE. This is why I often say, “I Am God.” Because I no longer live by the idea that God is separate from me. There is no ego attached to this sentiment but genuine knowing and love and peace. I also believe that there is a lot of freedom in knowing that I can be me and still be one with God. And if I am one with God, then indeed, I am God. And I feel that the reason this statement is not well received is that we immediately filter this information through our ego. The first response is to judge and say something like, “how dare you see yourself on the same level as God?” But I’m not placing myself on top of the world or anyone. I am simply seeing myself, you, and everyone as that — God. Outside of this human skin, after life, past the trauma and ego and pain and evil, when we penetrate all of these layers, all that is left is Source. Pure Source Consciousness. God. And if this is indeed true, then why wait until the moment we become “pure” to the standards of humanity to see ourselves as what we already are and have always been?
Now, I do believe that there is a difference in claiming to be God and using it as a way to control or manipulate others and seeing yourself as God, honoring Source through your own embodiment and human experience. Walking the way of love with peace and compassion. There is a big difference. When you remove the many layers of distortion generated by the ego, you go back to a space of clarity that helps you see all that exists and why it exists. You cease to desire control or power because you know that the truth is so much bigger than life. It makes no sense to control anything, to desire power because everything is already perfect.
Who or What is God?
My belief is that God is within and without. God is everything. God is energy, love, consciousness. He simply is. I also believe that the idea we have of God or the portrayal of God in the Bible, per se, is not 100% accurate. But again, that’s just my belief.
See, the bible is a book of perspectives. It wasn’t written by God or even Jesus. This book is a collection of memories and ideas, beliefs of people that too filtered information through their own ego. And this is important to remember. What we see in the Bible are tales of humans that are no different from me and you. The information we read in the Bible went through layers of distortion created by the ego of those sharing their perspective. And we can agree that back then, masculine energy was seen as greater than feminine energy. So much of what we know of through the bible is perspectives given to us through a masculine lens. Now, what do masculine and feminine have to do with anything, you ask? A lot.
Masculine energy tends to be more analytical, guided by facts. Feminine energy is more intuitive, guided by feeling. What I’ve been able to understand through my connection with Master Yeshua and Mary Magdalene is that a lot of their teachings were distorted. For example, if I say something, you will only hear what you want to hear. And what you want to hear is based on your level of awareness and whatever rewards or satisfies your ego. So no matter what I say, the perspective you have of what you hear will be different than mine. Why? Because I am me and you are you. But going back to feminine and masculine. If you look in the bible, each and every one of the gospels are written by men. The bible was edited by men, translated by men (only one woman has done this), and put together by men. And this matters because men (masculine energy) see things differently than women (feminine energy) do. Men (masculine energy) analyze words with the mind, women (feminine energy) analyze words with feeling, the heart. And of course, not all masculines and feminines work this way, but I think you get the point. Through the bible, we get a one-sided idea of God.
Now, let’s talk about Jesus because he is often brought up by religious scriptures. He is seen as the way, and he did allegedly say to his disciples that he was God. Below, I will share something written by Aaron Abke. Highly recommend his YouTube channel, especially his Mystical Jesus series. This is something I deeply resonate with and don’t think I can write it any better.
“Christ for me is a reality that can be experienced, but when I try to speak of this experience, I discover that it always transcends the grasp of my explanation. The error of Religion lies in seeing Christ as a person, rather than a dimension. Christ became flesh and walked among us, but only because 1 being opened himself enough to be the conduit of it. The fact remains that Christ exists in every human, but can only be experienced to the degree we are aware of it. And the person named Jesus points us to this dimension within all of us. “The Kingdom of Heaven”, He called it. And so as inspiring and worshipful as the person of Jesus was, it was not because He accepted Jesus as His personal Lord and Savior; but because He knew that “I and the Father are One”. So let this same mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus, who did not think it robbery to be called equal with God. The same mind = the same consciousness. So until you realize, just as Jesus did, that “I and the Father are One”, then you will have to settle for a meaningless confession and empty religious promises. Jesus did not invite us to confess Him, but to eat him. To merge with him completely. “For my flesh is real food, and my blood is real drink”. He invites us to realize the same consciousness exists within you. And only when this realization is made will you become the rivers of living water, springing up into everlasting life. A confession is not a transformation. A revelation is a transformation. And the Revelation of Jesus Christ is this: that you are also Christ, alongside the beggar, the widow, the CEO, the religious bigot, and everything in between. This is why Gods Love is always unconditional, because from the highest perspective, all is Christ, and Christ is in all. So if you truly want to worship Jesus, stop believing yourself to be separate. The highest possible form of worship is transformation, “so that where I am, there you may also be”. It is good to worship Christ, but better to become Christ.” ~ Aaron Abke
I grew up catholic. I always saw Jesus as God. And honestly, I loved him then and continue to do so now. But what I’ve learned is that beings like Master Yeshua do not seek to be worshiped. They understand that this is what the human does because of their lack of self-belief. Humans don’t believe they can attain a level of consciousness that puts them at the same level as these masters, and so they follow, they seek forgiveness for something that only they can forgive. Humans also don’t like to take responsibility for their actions, so they place a man on a pedestal to sort of lighten the load, you know. And of course, I don’t mean every single human has this mentality but I think you get the point I am trying to make.
Jesus and I Are ONE
Years ago, at the very beginning of my spiritual awakening, I was around 18-19 years old, I started to feel the energy of Jesus around me. Before, as a little child, his energy was very subtle. But during my late teens, his presence intensified. I began to feel his energy. I started to talk to him and even dream of him. Actually, let me share one of these dreams. I believe it fits beautifully with the perspective Aaron shared.
In the dream, I was in a large auditorium full of people. There was a huge red curtain and behind it a stage. I was standing behind that curtain with a few men. I remember me looking exactly as I did back then, waiting nervously to speak in front of everyone. I was terrified, but one of the men next to me, I think he may have been a priest, not sure, assured me that everything was going to be okay. A few moments later, the man walked out and introduced me to the people. And as I was walking out to speak, my appearance changed. I was no longer me, I was Jesus. I remember wearing a white robe with a red fabric across my upper body. And like Jesus, I began to speak and bless the crowd. I don’t remember what I said but for the longest time, I wondered what this dream meant. And now I believe I get it. It goes back to the idea that Jesus was a man, human, just like all of us. And what he did, we can all do. Christ is a state of consciousness, and this state of consciousness is available to all those who seek it and commit themselves to embody it and become it. It’s beautiful, isn’t it?
I want to close this with the following…
“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
Reading this, personally, I feel ego energy. “No one comes to the Father except through me” really sticks out as Jesus placing himself above everyone. “I am the only way.” So what about Buddhists, Jewish people, atheists, all these groups of people that do not worship Jesus? Are they all doomed? Are they not welcomed into the Kingdom of God? This doesn’t sound right. Especially coming from Jesus, a loving, divine being of light. So what if this quote means something entirely, or slightly different.
What if Jesus said this not because he is the only way to God but because he embodies humanity’s potential. What if instead of Jesus proclaiming his high status, his usage of “I am” instead refers to the idea of “the self” and not Jesus, the man himself.
The SELF is the way and the truth and the life. No one goes to the Father except through the MASTERY OF SELF.
How does that sound? Is there ego still attached to it? I believe this sounds so much better than the idea of one person being the savior and the only way to God’s Kingdom. You are the way. When you master yourSELF and follow the path of love and service to others, you embody all that God truly is — LOVE.
“When we read any statement from Christ in the Gospels, we have to read it with the understanding that he was not speaking as an ego or a person. He was speaking as ONENESS ITSELF. The “I” wasn’t a personal egoic “I” but the Universal “I” or “I AM.”
“Oneness is the Way, the Truth and the Life. No man comes to the Father but by Oneness.” ~ Aaron Abke
So what do you think? After reading this perspective, do you feel a bit more comfortable saying the words, “I AM GOD“? Please, feel free to share your own perspective in the comments. Also, send this to whoever you think needs to read this. Have a beautiful day, my friend.
