“I Am” the Truth

Blog Thumbnail (4)

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” John 14:6

These words spoken by Jesus are some of the most powerful pointers to the truth, if understood correctly. However, if misinterpreted, as many religious people and institutions do, they become a great obstacle to spiritual growth and development.

When Jesus said “I Am” the truth and the way and the life – He was not referring to “I (Jesus – the personality) am.” Rather Jesus was referring to the universal “I AM.” The I AM that I AM. The I AM that is in each and every one of us. That is to say that the “I AM” present in all of us is the truth and way and the ife. So that coming to the Father, back to Source, “except through me” is really connecting with Source by becoming one’s higher self, one’s I AM.

Jesus spoke of the innermost “I Am” as the essential identity of every human being, every life form in fact. Some mystical Christians call it the “Christ within”; Buddhists call it the “Buddha nature”; for Hindus, it is “Atman”, the indwelling God. When you are in touch with that dimension within yourself – and being in touch with it is your natural state, not some miraculous achievement – all your thoughts, words, emotions, actions and relationships will reflect the oneness with all life that you sense deep within. This is love. This is unity. This is oneness. This is what Jesus Christ was talking about.

Religions are actually correct when they identify relativism, the belief that there is no absolute truth to guide human behavior, as one of the evils of our time. Yet all religions are equally false and equally true, depending on how you use them. You can use them in the service of the ego, or you can use them in the service of the higher self and the truth. If you believe that only your religion is the absolute truth, you are using it in the service of the ego, “I am right and you are wrong.” Used in such a way, religion becomes ideology and creates an illusory sense of superiority as well as division and conflict between people. And so the world ends up with a number of religions, each believing that their way is THE truth – thus manifesting a number of truths and suggesting that there is no absolute truth.

Jesus stated a different view. There is an absolute truth. However, you won’t find absolute truth if you look for it where it cannot be found: in doctrines, ideologies, sets of rules, or stories. What do all of these have in common? They are all manmade. They are all from the mind. They are made of thoughts and words. Thoughts and words can at best point to the truth, but they are never the truth. That is why the Buddha says, “The finger pointing to the moon is not the moon”.

There is only one absolute truth and it is inseparable from who we are. Yes, “I AM the way, and the truth, and the life.” If we look for the truth elsewhere, we will not find it. We will be deceived every time. The very Being that we are is the truth. That is what Jesus was trying to convey to us.

In love and light,
