I Am

The Verb ‘to be’

English is a strange and complicated language. For every rule we have, there is an exception. We update our dictionaries regularly to reflect common usage, eventually accepting that our language is dynamically evolving.

And what of our verbs? We have first person, second person, third person; singular and plural. Our verbs allows us to declare our presence, our intentions, our perceptions.

God, Goddess, All That Is…whatever name you give that which is more than each of us individually…has also been called the Great I Am. In the Bible for example, Exodus 3:14 reads: And God said to Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shall you say to the children of Israel, I AM has sent me to you.

So what’s with the verb ‘to be’? It follows no standard rules like I be, you be, we bees. No. It is I am, you are, he is, she is, we are.  In a world that reminds us we’re spending too much time doing and would benefit by spending more time being; in recognizing the Divine spark within us all…If I will just rest in being, in the verb ‘to be’, I can recognize, “I am“.
