I am. Those two words combined together are very powerful. Early on the question was asked, “What is your name? What shall I tell them when they ask?” The answer came back, “Tell them my name is I AM.” I mused over those two words for a time and then I silently said the words to myself…”I am.” I said it aloud…”I am!” Because I know the story behind those two words, it felt awkward saying it (I am not THE I AM). Yet I (Morris E. Wray) am (alive, sentient and able) — a small “i” that resembles the big “I”.
Much of the time I do not think in terms of I am: that I can; that I am able and capable. A thought process such as this is energizing, self affirming, self directed and encouraging. It gives me identity. It is a thought process that needs to be consciously embraced. It is a thought process that needs to be reaffirmed daily. Human nature being what it is, I may acknowledge my need to consciously embrace a mindset of “I am and that I am capable”. But without a daily reaffirmation, it will go the way of all good intentions (ie., annual New Years resolutions). I have embarked on a path of discovery and implementation and I want to share it with you my readers.
Three times daily I verbally reaffirm my identity. I tell myself who I am. And while I realize that what I speak may not exactly match reality in all areas of my life, I refuse to accept or settle for less. I choose a road less traveled. I speak as though my pronouncements are actualities now.
I am free. I see all things with perfect clarity. I am productive. I see my all projects through to completion. I am witty and humorous. But most importantly, I live to serve, encourage, and educate humanity.
I embrace and reaffirm these thoughts daily, because I am. My prayer for you my reader is that the thoughts of “I am” will have a positive effect in your life, and a lasting affect in the lives of those you encounter.
Have A Great Day!
