Living in the Name of Being

God said to Moses, “ I AM WHO I AM.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel: ‘ I AM has sent me to you’ (Exodus 3:15)

Very easy is to say "I am this or that", "I love", "I wish", "I make"...

Where do this life and capacity come from?

Is there not a hidden arrogance and violence in the pronoun "I" that claims beingness, life, will and creation for itself?

The voice of the Ego could be attributed to those famous prophetic word:

I am the Lord [YHWH, Word-Emanation of the All Being] and there is no other; apart from me there is no God [Elohim]. I will gird you, though you have not known me (Isaiah 45: 5)

In these words, which everyone misunderstands, hides a great secret of the Name.

The Hebrew word Yhwh is comprised of Yah (Divine Father Word) and hawa, to exist. Therefore, Ya hawa would be the Existent Vibration or Eternal Being that causes everyting to exist. 

Actually, Jewish kabalists permutate the expression and speak of Havaya, Existence. Thus, the Divine Attribute of the Holy One is absolute existence.

Regardless of the spiritual tradition, the Holy Name has always to do with the power of Being and its creative capacity.

I form light and create darkness; I make well-being and create calamity; I am the Lord [YHWH,
Word-Emanation], who does all these things (Isaiah 45:7, ESV)

As an old Kabbalist said, it is impossible to use the Sacred Name without something happening.

For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he (Proverbs 23:7).

Hence the warning:

You shall not take the Name of Elohim [the Word] in vain (Exodus 20:7).

Since the name given is "I am (Septuagint)/I will be (Hebrew text)" (Exodus 3:15), if one thinks and feels "I am miserable," one becomes miserable; if one thinks and feels "I am a failure", failure is assured; if one dares to think and feel "I am superior", the fall is not far. What´s more, as soon as one thinks and feels "I am God," reality makes one fall like lightning, as happened to Luci ... in the Sky with Diamonds –Lennon and MacArtney would sing.

He said to them: I saw Satan fall from heaven like lightning (Luke 10).

The great cherub Lucifer, the famous Morning Star  was a type of immature ancestral Divine Mind that fell seduced by the Adversary/Satan or dividing Ego.

Now, for the sake of a future reconciliation, it was permitted to let his genes end up in Adam´s heart and later humanity, where Lucifer continues to dwell, from ancestral times, trying to use the Light of the Supreme, attemting to usurp the impossible:

How you are fallen from heaven, O Day Star, son of Dawn! How you are cut down to the ground,... You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven…I will make myself like the Most High.’ But you are brought down to Sheol, to the far reaches of the pit (Isaiah 14:13).

It is therefore almost a joke that carnal minds continue to seek out Lucifer and Satan outside of themselves and into "others" when both operate within. 

Many even come to consider that they are the same and not two aspects in the Fall of the Angel, who dared to say I Am, without knowing why nor how.

Therefore, who or what claims I Am, I Love, I Want inside oneself? How and with what interests?

Is it perhaps that little but tyrannical and luciferian ego who wants everything revolving around himself?

The truth is such scoundrel likes hiding. And it is not easy to convince him of how wrong he is. We can not catch him by the flap and say-with gritted teeth: "Come here son of the great b..." No, of course, that would be again the savage of "ego" in action.

Now, it is possible to realize that this "personal savage" is nothing more than a type of thought that lies constantly, being nothing more than a contraction of the Divine Attributes or Divine Name.

And without realizing that it is not by himself, but thanks to the Fullness of Love, Life and Light in the Name of the Supreme, the ego claims for himself the labels of the Name and falsifies them, as if they were his own.

Thus the ego never recognizes the Whole, but it wants protagonism and shout: I and only I am this or that. Did you hear me?

In this way he tries to impose ideas and beliefs on others, whether in the form of religion, politics, art or science.

So who will solve this mess?

Hallowed be thy Name

The Supreme is Absolute, so it
transcends all time, past, present and future, being Totally Unreachable Other.

This is why the great mystics said the Supreme is rather a Non-Being, Nothingnesss Unlimited, Ayn Sof, above even God, which is the Divine Mind-Heart-Body that comprise the Logos-Word/Emanation.

And does the Unnamable Supreme say I Am When He becomes like Nothing so everything can be?

Not even his Son, the very Word-Name, Elohim, dares to manifest I am with arrogance and parciality, like an Alpha male, for He knows the outcome. 

Aknowledging wholeness is rather a key to transcend time:

 I am the Alpha [of innocent self-ignorance] and the Omega [self-understandiung], –says YHWH Elohim–, He who is, who was and who is to come, the Almighty (Revelation 1: 8)

I am the father of this universe, the mother, the support and grandfather. I am the object of knowledge, the purifier and the syllable Om (Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 9)

The unconscious life is one in which we do not realize that Fullness is really to let the Divine Mind-Heart-Body live, love, forgive, accept, shine and illuminate through us, without attributing honors to itself, without "me" or "you" , but rather an "all for you". 

Give up, and know that I am Elohim [divine attributes] (Psalm 46:10)

He is your being, but you are not his
(The Cloud of Unknowing)
You who know Jalalludin,
You the One with All,
Say who I am.
Say I am You.
(Jallaludín Rumi, Persian Sufi poet, XIIIth century)

And when all things have been subdued to Him, then the Son [Yhwh] Himself will submit to Him [YHWH] who subjected all things to Him, so that God [Yhwh Elohim, divine attributes] may be all in all (1 Corinthians 15 : 28)

Being in the form [Name] of God, did not esteem to be equal to God as something to be grasped, but emptied of himself, taking the form of a servant, a fact similar to men (Philippians 2: 6).

Some say that the Supreme has no interests. But that is not entirely true, otherwise He would have not a pure Will pouring out His Fullness of Love, Life, Light and Peace into us, granting us to inhabit and manifest His Attributes/Name [YHWH], being the only thing that can free us from misery and death. 

Because there is no other Name [Love, Life, Light and Peace] under the heaven  given to men by which we can be saved (Acts 4:12).

I am the Bread of Life (John 6:35) 

I am the Light of the Kosmos (John 8:12, 9: 5)

I am the Door (John 10: 7)

I am the Good Shepherd John 10:11)

I am the Resurrection and the Life (John 11: 25-26)

I am the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14: 6)

I am the True Vine (John 15: 1)

... If you do not believe that I am, you will die in your sins (John 8:24)

So, one must die before he dies. The shell of the ego must be broken, for ... 

So, one must die before dying; the ego-shell must be broken, for...

if the grain of wheat does not fall to the ground and die, it remains alone; But if it dies, it produces much fruit (John 12:24)

Only then can we consciously feel I love, I forgive, I thank, I live, I suffer, I enjoy, recognizing that it is really the Great Being is behind. 

It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me (Galatians 2:20). 

The Buddha-nature is in fact not the self [anatta]. For the sake of guiding sentient beings, I describe it as the Self (Atman) (Mahaparinirvana Sutra)

You need to understand that I Am,
To see that I am not,
And realize that
I am not, therefore I am
(Wei Wu Wei)

Feeling I am Full and One with the All Being is a moment of recognition where there is no ego, but Unity, Ejad, with the heavenly Father (Ayn Sof Aur) and with the Grandfather (Ayn Sof)

I and the Father are One (John 10:30) 

Regardless of culture, language, or religious creed, the Name of the Holy One was, is and will always be Fullness in any circumstance: safe shelter for the homeless, deep consolation for the heartless, path of light for the lost ones, Father for the orphan, harmony for the musician... 

Perhaps for this reason the Hebrew Torah text expressed that the Name of Being is literally a potential state: 

I will be who I will be (Exodus 3:14).

And since the Name encompasses past, present and future, it expresses itself as Brahma / Visnu / Shiva, Krishna, YHWH, Buddha, Jesus Christ / Yahoshua, Mohammad, Allah ... 

All ephemeral labels describing partial moments of a a Great Revelation: the Infinite that hides and discovers itself in its Divine Hide. 

What else can be said when everything has already been said? He that has ears let him hear. 

As for the brutish Ego cazurro, let it get tired of moving in circles. 

Meanwhile, here comes another Indian recital of "Divine Name attributes" contained in the Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 7:

6.All life-enabled things gain their life from this life. And I am the beginning and the end of all things that exist. 

7. In all this immense universe there is nothing that is superior to Me. I am the support of all worlds, just as the thread holds together all the pearls of the necklace. 

8. I am the flavor of the Living Waters, I am the Light of the Moon and the Sun. I am the Holy Name, the sacred word of the Vedas. I am the sound of silence; The strength of men. 

9. I am the pure fragrance of the earth. I am the glow of fire. I am the life of all living creatures, and austerity in those who strengthen their souls. 

10. I am, and always have been, the seed of eternal life. I am the intelligence of the intelligent. I am the beauty of beauty.
