I AM Presence

The name, "I AM Presence," I AM THAT I AM, corresponds to the Father aspect of God in spiritual traditions around the I AM That I AMworld. It is the spirit of God individualized for each of us. The ascending and descending triangles of the Trinity of God within man meet in the center of the heart where the name of God, "I AM THAT I AM," is inscribed, as you can see in the illustration on this page.

To Hindus, Brahman is the one supreme universal Spirit that is the origin and support of the universe. Brahman is conceived as both personal (i.e., with qualities) and impersonal (i.e., without qualities). On the personal side, the Hindu trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva are seen as Father, Son and Holy Spirit --- parallel to Christianity.

Buddhists call the top figure Dharmakaya or Truth body, which is one of the three bodies (trikaya) of the Buddha. The other two bodies are Nirmanakaya (enlightened body) and Sambhogakaya (the body of bliss). Dharamakaya is absolute, unmanifested essence of the universe, and unity of all things and beings.

Sikhs call the top figure Waheguru. 'Wahe' means an appreciation in wonder and 'Guru' means the eliminator of ignorance. He is hailed as the Wondrous One --- the Wonderful God. He is immortal, all pervading, the Supreme, Truth, all powerful and without discrimination.

In Zoroastrianism, Ahura Mazda (Lord Wisdom) is regarded as the supreme god, who created the heavens and the Earth. He is the creator and upholder of Arta (truth) and is described as the highest deity of worship in Zoroastrianism.

Christians think of this spiritual power as God the Father. God revealed to Moses on Mount Sinai, “I AM THAT I AM. Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you….”

It is an ancient name, and yet we use it every day. Whenever we say the words, "I am," we are really saying "God in me." That is what this website is about – your divine Self, your I AM Presence -- and spiritual unity.
