Who Am “I”?

Through the Peacock's Eyes

the-divineWho am I? This physical brain is not posing the question, who is Julianne Victoria, but who is the “I” that lies behind the individual identity and separate physical body that is experiencing the typing of these words? Who am “I”?

In my post A Vessel of the Divine on the blog Blazing Light of Glory, which this body-mind co-creates with my Course in Miracles study-buddy Lisa of BloomLisa, I discuss how the body, including the individual mind in the physical brain, is how we mostly identify ourselves. The separation from God, Nature, and others that the individual mind believes, however, is just an illusion. This is a very challenging concept for the individual body-mind, the ego. However, what can be even more challenging is understanding who am “I”.

Firstly I’d like to point out that the ego, by which I mean the individual identity connected to each of our…

The Name of God

vibrationsThe next section of lessons from A Course In Miracles since our last review (lessons 171-180) often mentions and talks about the Name of God: Lesson 183: I Call Upon God’s Name And On My Own, and Lesson 184: The Name Of God Is My Inheritance. In my post The Word and Voice of GodI discussed: “When we become quiet and still, when our minds stop chattering about our grievances and fears, our souls within our bodies will “hear” the divine vibration of God’s word and voice; and as we become full of nothing (see this post), we free ourselves to be empty vessels ready and willing to be filled with the reverberating echoes of the voice of God.” But, what is the Name of God?

From Lesson 183: And should you join a brother as you sit in silence, and repeat God’s Name along with him within your quiet mind… see God’s Name replace the thousand little names you gave your thoughts, not realizing that there is one Name for all there is, and all that there will be.

The Name of God, the energy or vibration that is silent and formless, which is the creation and creator of everything, is all that ever was and ever will be. There is only one name for everything, for All, for the One, for Consciousness, for God.

From Lesson 184: Use all the little names and symbols which delineate the world of darkness. Yet accept them not as your reality. The Holy Spirit uses all of them, but He does not forget creation has one Name, one Meaning, and a single Source, Which unifies all things within Itself…God has no name. And yet His Name becomes the final lesson that all things are one, and at this lesson does all learning end. All names are unified.

Ecclesiastes 1:9: The thing that hath been; it is that which shall be; and that which is done, is that which shall be done; and there is nothing new under the sun.

We give names to organize and categorize people and things in our earthly lives. This is useful and practical, but naming creates separation, and all too often we forget this when we attach names and words to forms, which are impermanent and illusory. The Name of God, however, is without form. It is Formlessness Itself, the eternal, the one Divine Consciousness of all.

This is the great opportunity of loving the human form, because in this form you may come to know the formless– Mooji

The formless infinite Consciousness is what each and every one of us Is, beyond the words and illusions that we are separate from everyone, from everything, and from God. From Lesson 187: And here, before the altar to one God, one Father, one Creator and one Thought, we stand together as one Son of God. Not separate from Him Who is our Source; not distant from one brother who is part of our one Self Whose innocence has joined us all as one, we stand in blessedness, and give as we receive. The Name of God is on our lips.
