Who We Are What We Are

Philosophers and prophets have been saying for millennia that Consciousness, the ”I AM” experience, is the origin of it all. The ancient teachings of Kashmir Shaivism, dating back to 3000 B.C. posit that pure non-physical consciousness exists within all beings and that it is the step by step involution of this consciousness into a non-conscious physicality that has produced the Universe. This is paralleled by the modern teachings of Siddha Yoga and the Integral philosophy of Sri Aurobindo.

In the western Bible, when Moses asks God for his name and he responds “I AM that I AM” (Exodus 3:14) that would seem to come to the same conclusion. Similarly, Jesus’ words “the kingdom of heaven is within you” (Luke 17:21) could not be more to the point. Plus, it has been noted that what has been translated from Aramaic as “I am the way” (John 14:6) could just as easily been translated as “I am is the way”, which does not deny the purity or divinity of Jesus in the slightest, although it gives his followers a different direction to look for their own answers.
