St. Germain, I AM, the Nag Hammadi Library, and Conversations with God
excerpted from THE WAY OF WONDER: a return to the mystery of ourselves, by Jack Haas
“It is that which you have sought to understand from the beginning of time. The Great Mystery, the Endless Enigma, the eternal truth. There is only One of Us, and so, it is THAT WHICH YOU ARE.”
God (Conversations with God, Neale Donald Walsch)
Perhaps it is time we grew up and got on with the show.
We are the Creators of the Creation. We are the Dreamers of the Dream. We are the Eye of the I. We have found ourselves inside what we claimed we did not know was us.
The Gospel of Truth, from The Nag Hammadi Library, relates: “The gospel of truth is a joy for those who have received from the Father of truth the grace of knowing him... For he discovered them in himself, and they discovered him in themselves, the incomprehensible, inconceivable one, the Father, the perfect one, the one who made all things.”
The unique mystic, Neville, provides another exegesis on the matter, suggesting: “ Hear, O man made of the very substance of God: You and God are one and undivided! Man, the world, and all within it are conditioned states of the unconditioned one, God. You are this one; you are God conditioned as man. All that you believe God to be, you are; but you will never know this to be true until you stop claiming it of another, and recognize this seeming other to be yourself. God and man, spirit and matter, the formless and the formed, the creator and the creation, the cause and the effect, your Father and you are one. This one, in whom all conditioned states live and move and have their being, is your I AM, your unconditioned consciousness. ¼[Such that] as the conditioned state, I (man) might forget who I am, or where I am, but I cannot forget that I AM.”
The acceptance that our ‘I AM’ is God’s ‘I AM’ is the recognition relentlessly brought forth in the ‘I AM Teachings’ of St. Germain and other ‘ascended’ masters, published by the St. Germain press. They contend that it is only in the realization that our self is God’s Self that we truly are God.
“The ‘I AM’ is the Fathomless Mind of God.”
Joseph Benner conveys this point emphatically, writing from the ‘I’ in all of us: “I! Who am I?- I AM You¼Yes, I AM You, Your SELF; that part of you who says I AM and is I AM¼ I, your Divine SELF. ¼You are an expression of Me, because only through You, My Attribute, can I express My Self, can I BE. I AM because You Are. You ARE because I AM expressing My SELF. ...You are a human personality, yet You are Divine [; the] first of these truths you believe, the latter you do not believe. Yet both are true- That is the mystery. ¼[Therefore] Be still! And KNOW- I AM- GOD.”
So when we finally come to this outlandish observance, perhaps we will also shout in exaltation with Nijinski, “I am God, I am God, I am God.”
And perhaps, just like him, we will all need to fall down in ignominious wonder at the incomprehensible actuality that WE ARE THE GREAT-ONE-MYSTERY WHICH IS GOD.
“Then shall the Vision of the Lord be granted unto thee,
And seeing Him shalt thou behold
The Shining One
Who is thine own true Self¼”
Therefore, we now understand our Work- to know our own divine unknowable selves; to be and to see mystery everywhere, and in everyone.
Only then will a new age dawn, division will become unified, time will end, love will fill everything...
“And the mystery of God shall come to an end.”
“Come, amigo, throw away your mind.”
