I AM BEING; being me
We start with the first two words in Genesis 1:1:
ראשׁית rê’shîyth ray-sheeth’ the first principal thing
אלהים ‘ĕlôhîym el-o-heem’ the Supreme One
Eloheem is a plural masculine noun used with singular masculine verbs. This is contrary to rules of Hebrew grammar, but done on purpose..
The plural is used to show majesty, honor, or fullness.
One not as a separate entity; but as Complete Collective Consciousness (BEING).
Gen 1:1-3 Created by the Elohim were the heavens and the earth. Yet the earth became a chaos and vacant, and darkness was on the surface of the submerged chaos. Yet the spirit of the Elohim is vibrating over the surface of the water. And saying is the Elohim, “Become light!” And it is becoming light.
Spirit רוּח rûach roo’-akh wind, breath, a region of the sky, mind
Light אור ‘ôr ore illumination; to be or make luminous (be, give, or show light) enlightened, set on fire, shine.
Let enlightenment or illumination become; this is the first action of the Supreme One. This is the same principal that Buddha called enlightenment or illumination.
I see now that all creatures have perfect enlightenment – but they do not know it. Buddha
Gen 1:26-27 And saying is the Elohim, “Make will We humanity in Our image, and according to Our likeness, and sway shall they over the fish of the sea, and over the flyer of the heavens, and over the beast, and over all land life, and over every moving animal moving on the land. And creating is the Elohim humanity in His image. In the image of the Elohim He creates it. Male and female He creates them.
Dreams and visions play an integral part in Eloheem passing information to humans. In fact the book of The Revelation is a series of nonsequential dreams and visions. A major portion of the Bible is based on dreams and visions.
Exo 3:13-14 Now Moses said to the One, Elohim: Behold! When I am coming to the sons of Israel, and I say to them, The Elohim of your fathers sends me to you, then they will say to me, What about His name? What shall I say to them? Then Elohim spoke to Moses: I shall come to be just as I am coming to be. And He said: Thus shall you say to the sons of Israel, I-Shall-Come-to-Be has sent me to you.
היה hâyâh haw-yaw’ to exist; that is, be or become, come to pass
I shall come to be just as I am coming to be היה hâyâh haw-yaw’ אשׁר ‘ăsher ash-er’ היה hâyâh haw-yaw’ a lot of translations read I AM that I AM.
The Hebrews repeated a word to make it superlative. Like Isa 26:3 You will keep in perfect peace the mind stayed on You, for he trusts in You. שׁלום shâlôm shaw-lome’ meaning peace is repeated to mean perfect peace.
“I AM BEING; being me” is the very essence that the Supreme One placed within us. As we allow enlightenment or illumination to flow from within us to the without we also experience “I AM BEING; being me”.
Num 23:19 God is not a man that He should lie, or a son of man that He should repent. Has He said, and shall He not do it? And has He spoken, and shall He not make it good?
Psa 8:4-5 what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man, that You visit him? For You have made him lack a little just a part of Eloheem; and have crowned him with glory and honor.
The Hebrew expression “son of man” is used to contrast the lower essence of humanity with Eloheem.
Joh 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I AM [he], ye shall die in your sins.
Joh 8:28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I AM [he], and [that] I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
Joh 9:9 Some said, This is he: others [said], He is like him: [but] he said, I AM [he].
[he] [this was added for grammatical clarity]
Contrast the previous verses with this verse that does not have [he].
Joh 8:58 Jesus said to them, “Most positively, I say to you*, before Abraham came to be, _I_ AM!”
Here is one of the previous verses in another translation without the [he].
Joh 8:28 Then Jesus says to them, “Whenever you folks may lift up high (raise aloft; elevate; or: exalt) the Son of man (Humanity’s Son; the Son of Mankind), then you will come to know by personal experience that I AM, and I from Myself am habitually doing nothing (not one thing), but rather, according as the Father teaches (or: taught) Me, I continue speaking these things.
Jesus was quite clearly not calling himself God, but stating that when you elevate the essence of humanity inside you will experience I AM. “I AM BEING; being me”
THE TRUTH WILL MAKE YOU FREE
Joh 8:32 “and you will come to know the Truth (Reality) by intimate experience, and the Truth (Reality) will liberate and make (set) you free!”
What is this truth?
We are an essence from the Supreme One, at the center of our being; that currently has a physical body.
What is the nature of this freedom?
A lot of times we want to experience freedom “from” something. That is not the nature of this freedom.
This is the freedom “to be” whatever the Supreme One places in us.
The Supreme One (Father within), life itself, goodness itself, is a loving presence that is fully capable of demonstrating the good he/she truly anticipates.
You keep your future choice making free by not making choices in the present moment that apply binding or limiting restrictions. Such as “I am not good at math” “I am clumsy”, etc.
Freedom is also about having no secrets. If you hold no secrets in your life you can’t be shamed or blackmailed.
Heavens οὐρανός oo-ran-os’ the sky and heaven from root words meaning to rise and to expand
Jesus had a number of parables about the kingdom of heaven. One was about a loaf rising. Many are about things expanding or increasing.
Luk 17:20-21 Now having been questioned by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God is coming, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; neither will they say, ‘Look here!’ or ‘Look there!’ For listen! The kingdom of God is within [or, among] you*.”
Joh 3:6-7 The [thing] having been born from the flesh is flesh, and the [thing] having been born from the Spirit is spirit. “Stop marveling that I said to you, ‘It is necessary [for] you* to be born from above [or, born again].'”
Born from above, from the first, above, anew, again, from the beginning (very first), the top.
Remember our first word ראשׁית rê’shîyth ray-sheeth’ the first principal thing.
Born Again To bring forth from the first principal thing.
