I Am That I Am

by Paul Moses, Newrybar

I am that, I am… I slowly awake once more, I await another day.

Outside is dark and windy and I can feel the cold air of the beginning of winter on my face. Thoughts start to invade my space, bringing an anxiousness of what lies ahead; I know this all too well. In this knowing comes a surrender, an awareness – not to the invasive thoughts but to a stillness.

I feel a beautiful supportive energising state – an allowing, an openness for the day and all it offers to come to me. The day ceases to be a chore; it is not a battle, hard work, a constant trying to control what’s next, a game of chess, to achieve and be recognised for what I have done.

The day is now a blessing; a bringer of awareness and the feeling of being loved.

In that love there is a call that I hear, feel and see from the One that Loves: it is the Father of all, my Father, God, that ignites the very same in me, that reaches out from my innermost, through my body and meets all there is, God, in the joy of meeting more of me and knowing I am that, I am.

On moving my body full of love, and walking in the loving body of God, is my rhythm that constellates with all there is. Through my body I connect: I touch the physical world, and in that warmth I am there in full expression, knowing I am that, I am a living Son of God.

  1. Coming back once again to these beautiful words of yours Paul feels like returning to the company of an old and dear friend. As I read I feel my breathing slow down, a delicate expansion throughout my body and a warmth in my heart. And from this place “comes a surrender, an awareness – not to the invasive thoughts but to a stillness”, and finally a whole body sigh of joy

  2. Thank you Paul for this prayer for all time, one that reminds us of who we are and why we are here together, so we can re-ignite our light within and live our Divinity, as we have been sent to.

  3. “In this knowing comes a surrender, an awareness – not to the invasive thoughts but to a stillness.”
    Each moment we have a choice to surrender to stillness or to indulge in anxiousness etc. and the thoughts that come with that. We are often unaware of this choice, but we are making it nevertheless. So awareness, as is stated here, is a key factor in making different choices.

  4. Thank you Paul for a truly beautiful blog, as I read your words I feel a warmth glowing from within and a joy in my heart. “Through my body I connect: I touch the physical world, and in that warmth I am there in full expression, knowing I am that, I am a living Son of God.”

  5. The only thing I can do after reading this blog is surrender and feel how my body responds immediately with letting go of a tension I was holding in my shoulders and feeling space in my breath spreading through my entire body embracing me.

  6. Love to read this blog today Paul and in particular this line: ‘The day is now a blessing; a bringer of awareness and the feeling of being loved’. This feels a gorgeous reflection and a confirmation of where I am now and how simple my life has become because whatever I need just flows and comes my way without effort or trying and pushing ( my old way). Life is no longer about me, me, me….. life is about service and responsibility and seeing the bigger picture. I am deeply held and loved as we all are – so gorgeous to feel this!

  7. This is beautiful Paul ‘On moving my body full of love, and walking in the loving body of God, is my rhythm that constellates with all there is.’ Knowing this and choosing to live this everyday reminds us of how glorious we truly are.

  8. Thank you Paul, this felt so lovely and expansive in my body today and reminded me that those first few moments when we awake and what we do first thing counts for a lot. And also that if I feel tension I can always come back to letting my body surrender and allow for this expansion any time.

  9. What you describe here Paul is such a contrast to dragging ourselves out of bed, dreading or not having the energy for what the day brings, and reaching for the kickstart of the coffee. We miss out on so much without the connection to God.

  10. Beautiful Paul. The power of surrender in a moment is all that is needed to change the ill momentum that is running the day. It is the power of surrender that I can often ignore and override but in its simplicity is absolute magic as it has the strength to relinquish emotions and ill thoughts to the absolute love that I am.

  11. I find that some days I live with a knowing that I am that and that I have a deep connection within and these days life does not affect me as I have understanding in each moment and other days when I lose this connection I am at the mercy of life, I am affected by the day and the moments within it and life becomes dull and monotonous. Such a different choice.

  12. It is a really a blessing to me to read this blog, Paul. The stillness you describe I do know so well, as it carries the seed of god and when we grow this stillness in our awareness and through our movements, we do feel that we are part of a grander whole and belong to, and are part of God, and can confirm yes, “I am that, I am.”

  13. Paul the wisdom you share here is a blessing and a healing for all your readers and far beyond. Thank you.

  14. Very wise words indeed. All too often in the search for enlightenment or spiritual aspiration, is based on a fervour that has us always seeking something more – something tantalising, vast, and larger than life. The truth however cannot ever be found from such a foundation, but rather can only be found through surrender and acceptance. And so, the first part of “I am” refers to the revelation of the divinity found within, whilst the “that” refers to the confirmation of what you have felt, whilst the last “I am” simply refers to the complete surrender to the fact that that is all I need to be, and that is everything.

  15. Reading and speaking these words myself brings surrender to the body and reminds us all of who we truly are and that this fire within us can never be extinguished.

  16. A great wisdom you share here Paul, to know and feel how great we truly are without allowing ourselves to shrink away from the truth.

  17. What an absolute gem Paul, so beautifully expressed and expansively delivered. A blessing to read – thank you.

  18. So beautiful to re read this Paul and to ponder on one of the first sentences; ‘Thoughts start to invade my space, bringing an anxiousness of what lies ahead; I know this all too well. In this knowing comes a surrender, an awareness – not to the invasive thoughts but to a stillness.’ There is a stop in this to not allow the non supportive thoughts to run through your body but to choose what we know is true, a connected body in stillness.

  19. A moment of choice so beautifully shared and claimed. Everything is here already, in full, to be appreciated. And so powerful is the awareness that it is a choice, our choice. Great to observe anxiousness is never about this very moment.

  20. I long to feel this but if I am honest, I am in the struggle maybe not as much as the next person, I love work, I love home, I love people, nothing is a chore but I am in a constant trying, to keep up, to make sure I don’t miss anything, like juggling many balls but in a fear that if I pause just for a moment, I will drop them all. In this act, how much am I really loving? How much am I really reflecting? I certainly don’t think this is what God had planned for his children. So I read this beautiful blog still feeling at a distance to what you offer but I have had glimpses of this in my life just still unable to bring them into a daily way of living.

  21. Thank you Paul for a truly beautiful sharing, as I read your words I feel a beautiful surrender to the warmth of my own divine love within my body.

  22. Absolutely beautiful Paul. I especially resonated with; “The day is now a blessing; a bringer of awareness and the feeling of being loved.” What an openness and opportunity this brings to go into your day knowing if you allow all there ‘is’ to be loved.

  23. Stunning Paul, I revisit this every few months and am equally touched each time in the reminder of the profound beauty of where we come from and who we are. Thank you.

  24. ” I am that, I am ” This is true of all of us and so beautifully expressed , in the action of livingness .
    Thank you Paul .

  25. I had to read this again, there is something so sacred within this blog and as some already have described it – even as a prayer.

    I loved reading this ‘The day ceases to be a chore; it is not a battle, hard work, a constant trying to control what’s next, a game of chess, to achieve and be recognised for what I have done’ – is where I was at.

    But now I am more here ‘The day is now a blessing; a bringer of awareness and the feeling of being loved’.
