I Am That
’I am’ itself is God,
the seeking itself is God.

In seeking you discover that
you are neither the body nor the mind,
and the love of the self in you is for the self in all.

The two are one.

The consciousness in you
and the consciousness in me,
apparently two, really one,
seek unity and that is love.

What do you love now?
The ‘I am’.

Give your heart and mind to it,
think of nothing else.

This when effortless and natural,
is the highest state.

In it love itself is the lover and the beloved.
