I Am, I Am
Source: The Aquarian Teacher
Author: Yogi Bhajan
This mantra connects the finite and Infinite identities. The first "I AM" that emphasizes the "I" is the personal the finite sense of self. The "I AM" that emphasizes slightly the "AM" is the impersonal and transcendent sense of the Self. All real mantras blend this polarity of the Infinite and finite in their internal structure and design. If you only say the first "I AM" the mind will automatically try to answer, "I am what?" The sends the mind ona search through all the categories and roles that hold the finite identities. If you immediately say the second part of the mantra, "I AM" the thought becomes " I AM What I AM" To be what you are is the essence of truth and will lead you to the nature of Reality. The hand and the breath move in rhythm and strengthen your ability to maintain a sense of self as your awareness expands.
