You're Who You Believe Yourself to Be
I am you, you are me and I am me because you are you. So if we all just stop and take the time to ponder for a second the truth will flood in. It is all going on from within us. The great trick in life is to accept this persistent illusion at face value. We are here to observe and to be observed. We don't always have to "be someone" only if we realize we are someone. So to answer the question of who I am is the definition of life itself. I'm still living so one day I'll give you a better answer.
Who am I? Where have I come from? And where am I going?
These three questions open doors to spiritual self-discovery. We often get so caught up in material life that we begin to identify with our possessions, our jobs and our roles in relationships. When we lose these things? We lose our imagined identity and we no longer know who we really are.
I AM that inner self of you that you cannot see (or don't want to acknowledge) because of your boundaries, the barriers placed to the concept of your infinity and innocence, the pre-conceived ideas of who you think you are, the illusion you think you are that has been built up by your pre-conditioning, your genetic heritage and with everything that has happened to you since the time of your conception in your mother's womb.
The endless search for fulfillment, for happiness, for material possessions, for partners, that you have embarked on is because of that judgment. You had that feeling and now that feeling has all of you. Judgment arose from your need to make a choice, whereas, in reality, there isn't a choice to be made. I, the real You, in the infinity of innocence, your Inner Self have no free will. Do You dare to be the Lover, the Beloved and the Act of Loving, combined, One? Because I am.
I am the one, beyond perspective, preconception or vision. I respire without the illusion, conviction or contradiction. I am omnipresent, omnipotent, the Universe within a single dot and the dot that is the Universe! ~Prerana

I AM WHAT I AM
I AM a transcendent Spirit born in a human body or carriage made of skin. I came equipped with yet to germinate seeds for developing consciousness and ego. As I AM Spirit, I AM a fearless seeker of every experience before me just for the experience of experience.
As I AM fearless Spirit in search of every experience that exists, I can be reckless and a danger to the totality of my being so I created an EGO to keep my being safe by infusing fear into my mind. Sadly, contemporary life holds fear as the largest motivator of mankind. As a result, my EGO shifted into overdrive creating rampant fear based on an illusion that everything in life is to be feared and avoided. A conflict ensued between the Spirit that I AM and the EGO I created. With my forced introduction to academic and religious instruction came a controlling structure that my EGO loved and gorged itself upon at the expense of the Spirit that I AM and my EGO bloated out of control.
One day I realized that it was I who allowed the irrational fear of others to shape my life. So I started monitoring my thoughts, challenging my fears, and filling my mind with positivism. My fears withered causing my self-made EGO to quiet, and the fearless, transcendent Spirit that I AM “first” seeker of every experience, took the helm of my life’s course. Still, I AM what I AM; a Spirit transported in a human body, directed by my mind that now works not to kill the EGO I created, because it is a necessary safety net, but to rein it in from irrationality. I AM SPIRIT and I AM responsible for my EGO. ~ Randall
~ The Window of Soul ~
a poem from within us all
Come to our window and watch now,
As the world rambles on in a race.
Come to our window and see out ~
And then turn "in" to find this place.
"In" is the place that you grow from,
"In" is the house of intent,
"In" is the safe place to nurture ~
The virtues Creator hath sent.
Here you will find all that's needed,
Each breath brings us closer to thee.
Our thoughts are not only separate ~
They form us and drive us to BE.
Hold strong the vision that binds us,
Stay true to your purpose & know.
That I am the Light right above us ~
And you are the Shadow below.
Together we walk life with purpose,
Please trust that we have it all.
Listen intently and act when ~
Ever your heart heeds the call.

TWO words that will change your life (10:42)
The Great I AM
Who am I? That really seems to be the ultimate question. The great I AM has been annualized, theorized, poetified, and pulled apart for centuries, trying to find the ultimate answer to that question. For me, what it really comes down to is the fact that we simply are. We are all the things we put our minds and hearts to be at any given moment, and then expand from there to be more of what we want to be. As we move along this new way of being, the things I will be focusing on will not necessarily be questioning who or why I am, but turning the focus to what I have to offer to the world with who I am. ~ Matt James
I AM Myself
If I am not myself, then who else am I?
To many people I am many things; a son, a brother, an uncle, a warrior, a medicine man, a priest, a linguist... people say I am wise, people say I am immature. I say I am myself. I am myself . In fact, I am YOUR self too.
~ Raven Sacred Voice
Who am I ? A question pending since Millennium.
Whatever we have so far, are expressions of individuals based upon their experiences during their lives. Mankind is in constant search for its answer. Those who believe in metaphysical universe, are constantly putting up all efforts to seek what is unknown so far and their path of search is SCIENCE . Those , who think only INNER BEING, can put up a correct answer, are following the path of spirituality. A Genius of the stature of Einstein, has to move out of metaphysical thinking and expressed his views purely in an spiritualistic manner during last days of his life. So my answer to this question is, "What I perceive of myself is Who am I. "
The Complex Simplicity of the Question
"Who am I?". This is a question we ask ourselves. To ask ourselves a question would lead one to believe there is duality within our true essence, however, the one asking the question does not know because it is not who we are. We are the one being asked. Our true essence is intuitive, it knows who we are. Otherwise it would be asking the question. With this in mind, who is the one asking the question?
Jill Bolte-Taylor's "A Stroke of Insight", for me, has been the most thought provoking discovery about who we are. Her experience led to the discovery of the right hemisphere processing information in pictures and analyzing a current moment, while the left hemisphere processes information in words and makes predictions for the future based on past experience. So if the left hemisphere asks the questions, it must not be our true consciousness.
The left hemisphere is where ego resides. It can't be in a present moment, so it is an illusion. I believe, there was a human race on earth with only the right hemisphere. They communicated via a collective consciousness and took in data through their vibrational field, or Chi, to report to the brain. They had unconditional love and acceptance for each other in order to unite a collective consciousness. A catastrophic event caused a near mass extinction therefore the collective consciousness was unavailable to the few remaining humans.
The right brain began to separate and evolved into an individual survival tool now known as the left hemisphere. The left hemisphere was made in the image of the right. It mimics higher consciousness. Now that the earth is recolonized...we have a choice to make. The current mass population on earth is transforming into the collective again. Free will allows us to choose. Collective consciousness and vibration, or individual consciousness and sensory system? So, Who Am I? I Am not me. I Am one with you. I AM LOVE. Our universe was created with a spark and a thought. Vibration and consciousness.
We are the man with two brains. Two hemispheres that work in different ways.
