I am that

By the mind of man

For it cannot conceive

This that I am

I am that

Which whispers

From the depths of being

Awakening memory

This that I am

I am that

Which was, is and shall be

Still in the heart of man

This that I am

I am that

Not seen with the eyes

Or grasped by the hand

This that I am

I am that

Which is empty yet full

Wandering the land

‘Fore Abraham

This that I am

I am that

Which is truth and light

Tender and loving

Always becoming

This that I am

I am that

Which is an endless sea

Whose waters run

Beyond time free

This that I am

I am that

Which knows all of you

Yet you know not me

‘Til I am set free

This that I am

I am that

Which is true to all

Yet believed by few

For this that I am

I am that …


Travellers of the Soul.

This is that which exists...

Here before the beginning of time

The present, the future

The eternal now.

A reason without reason

The incorruptible joy behind sorrow

An untouchable light in the darkness

The beloved way of souls.

The true destiny of all

A sacred path of remembrance

Transcending the dream of illusion

Arising into the reality of heaven.

All will arrive one day

On remembering the way home

Revealing the way was never closed

Only obstructed by what was placed there.

Travellers of the soul we are

Travellers all

This .... a poem.


If I could give you anything,
It would be this.
This instance, this feeling, this reality.
For this is all we are.

I would give you myself,
And in giving myself,
You would recognise your own self,
Which is one and the same.

If I could show you true love,
I would not give you a kiss,
But I would bare you my soul,
Share it with you.

And if I could do one thing more,
Before I leave this place,
I would give you my all,
I would give you... this.

(c) 2007 J.M.Harrison


There is nothing to seek, because the reality we search for is something we already are. Every single one of us is awakened when we deny the veils created by the ignorant mind which disguise and obstruct our true nature, for by decreasing our “I” we systematically increase the recognition or remembrance of our true being. The process of looking at ourselves without allowing the old controlling mind pulling the wool over our eyes is a pathway towards deeper knowing.

Are we ready to let go of the ‘self’ that we and others have spent a lifetime inventing? For many in this world, this is too much to ask. To reveal to oneself that the ‘life’ we have constructed was in fact carried out by poor workmanship, built with materials of inferior quality, with only one guarantee, that one day it will all fade away to nothing is too much to contemplate. But there, beyond the invented veils of the mind of “I”, in the farthest depths of our being, is the only reality worth realizing, one’s eternal self, and our true identification. An awareness of consciousness that has been built from the highest quality material, and made to last beyond time itself.

The veils so readily proposed by the addictive mind indicate that we want this or want that, need to be this, or need to be seen as 'something' in this world, but this is all a hallucination. What is real is this instant of peace, this sense of love, this reality of arriving beyond the thoughts of the mind, returning home like the long lost prodigal sons and daughters that we all are. It is in this place that you never left that you reveal your true self. The constant noise of thought, like some annoying interference heard on an old fashioned radio, is gradually dissolved by tuning in to your innermost reality, the real you. This is the true recognition of the underlying self, rediscovered by stripping away rather than adding to, revealing rather than accumulating. What you naturally are is this pure aliveness that is formlessness.

Eventually a point arises where there is no more “I”, for all conscious thought has ceased to occupy the addictive mind. This reveals the true nature of man, the reality behind the misleading overcoat of matter, the essence of the true self that has not left you for one second and yet somehow the revelation of a complete experience of life.

Throughout the ages the seemingly endless search for human beings has been to attempt to answer the question " Who am I?". The traditional religious masters view on this describes it as the I AM or source consciousness, the stillness within.

The absolute truth can equally be understood as the consciousness which reveals that I AM NOT for the real essence of your being is consciousness (or spirit) and therefore what you truly are is formlessness, yet at the same time completely whole. Surrendering your identity you will lead you to an awareness where all is one, seeing through the transparency of the world of matter into a new complete state of being that contains all consciousness. It is not a separate consciousness from what we understood previously, but now a whole awareness rather than a partial perception of reality. It is full-on reality in it's unabridged stunning truth.

If we were to question this state of consciousness, the conversation might go something like this;

What is it that you really want?

I want for nothing, but am present in all.

If you could have anything, what would that be?

To accept the truth that we can never really ‘have’ anything.

If you had all the money in the world, what would it mean to you?

Money in itself has no meaning; the use of it is the lesson.

What is the secret of life?

There is no secret, accept that which is your true self.

And what is your true self?

The true self is an aspect of 'God'.

So you are saying that we are 'God'?

We are all aspects of God, for we are a part of that whole which constitutes God.
When we walk with God, we express that consciousness.

And how can we find this 'God' ?

By baring yourself, by laying open all the thoughts, words and deeds that have accompanied you on your travels. Cleaning the slate of life so to speak.

So we have done wrong ?

There is no wrong or right, merely a question of letting go and growing up, allowing the true expression of your soul into the world.

How do we know that you are telling the truth ?

That is for you to discern as you will. If you have to discern it, you are in the process of finding it. We must recognise in order to realise.

And what do you recognise ?

That we are all reflections of one another, part of the same oneness that constitutes life. Together we are capable of changing the world we inhabit.

What's wrong with the world then ?

The world was created as one face of expression, just as you were created as another face of expression. When you constantly take from one source without replenishing that which you have taken, there is only one outcome and that is devastation.

Is climate change a part of that devastation ?

We cannot separate the devastation created by war and the chaos of climate change created by man, for they are both methods of abuse. When we constantly abuse something, the abuser will get away with it until the day that the abused party says ‘ No more’. Then a re- balancing needs to occur. What is happening to the Earth is also happening within the consciousness of her inhabitants, for at an indefinable point, they are one.

Can we change the future ?

You can change the future by becoming a part of the present moment. We can become part of it by recognising yourself in the stillness of our soul, for this is when we exercise our expression of presence, the true essence of our being.

How can we become present ?

Exactly that, by becoming; not by thinking or by doing. Life is about becoming and we become that which we allow ourselves to become. If we dwell on the past, or dream of the future, we miss the now, the present. When our energy is present we are present in our truest expression.

What is the point in true expression?

The expression of truth is necessary in order that humanity may learn to evolve. The simplest lesson of this we have is the sweeping of dirt under the rug, for eventually one day it will not be hidden any longer and will need to be rectified.

There are many such examples of 'dirt' that have been swept under the 'rug' and ignored by the world for too long. Do we understand the true consequences of the atomic and hydrogen bombs? The true pollution caused by man purely for financial gain or the consequences of the many decades of oil being sucked out of the body of the Earth?

It is the same with ourselves. We sense what is right, but rarely do it, for most human beings in the western world are selfish ( they want for themselves), spoilt ( they want it right away) , greedy ( they want more) and lacking in focus, for their focus is wanting, which of course you can never have, because you can always imagine something else that you want.

When the focus is apparent, it appears to be financial gain, gloating over others misfortune, self importance, or our physical appearance. As if all these outer appearances constitute the true world. They do not, for they constitute a world lost in its own pleasure of self, a world where many are overlooked for the few, and where an approaching self created devastation lurks just around the corner.

Ignoring something for a long time escalates its inability to function correctly. Shutting our eyes to the present state of the world does not help alleviate the problem. Likewise ignoring the truth of our individual state of being creates dysfunction in the body-mind-spirit system.

Where the mind and spirit are ignored, the resulting action is animalistic and the resulting consequence is chaos.

Where the spirit is ignored the resulting action of the body and mind is overblown self value, a vain, confused, ignorant self centred being not aware of is true essence, out for all it can get for itself and its own. The resulting consequence is mental disorder, dysfunction and devastation.

When the spirit is recognised the resulting actions are those of love, patience, truth, understanding, peace, humbleness, loss of self, completeness, wholeness, purity and an open heart to all existence. The resulting consequence is the revelation of our true selves.

By moving into the present moment, the 'hic et nunc', we become transformed into being. The old reality of the world of doing now appears pointlessly concerned with endless insignificance. So how then does this change help others? The answer is, that by altering our states of being we also transform our qualities. These qualities then come bursting back into the world because the greatest natural quality of the conscious intelligence behind life is to share with all. It is inclusive, denying none, accepting of everyone and everything. This 'spiritual state' then begins a natural process of feeding itself, of nourishing itself, and by doing so begins a process of transformation within others. This transformation is a reflection of the remembrance of our origins and is accepted by us on an individual basis, for when we need to see something, we will find it.

It is consciousness, and it is this awareness of consciousness that can change the world we live in. It does not belong to one person, but to all. It is not only a reality solely of the present day, but of times gone by and times to come, for it is eternal. The beauty of consciousness in it's purest state is that it not only no longer requires personal identification in the form of the "I", but also that it lies beyond the self-imposed boundaries of time and space.

"Humanity has time. Consciousness has eternity."

The more people that develop this consciousness, (what is referred to in the book as the awareness of One) the greater effect caused in the world. One day the spiritual state that transforms ourselves and others could lead to the creation of a truly physical Spiritual State. A united world no longer separated by countries or religions, where all people are truly equal, arriving at a time when humanity finally becomes consciously unified by awakening to true being.

Another poem...


I think of you all my beloved

Not one single day slips by

Not one second disguises your memory

For we are one, both you and I.

I love you all my beloved

There is no other way

No separation of more nor less

For we are all the same.

I sing to you all my beloved

From the depths of my soul I do

Sharing a life of meaning you sense

Is the closest path to truth.

I call to you all my beloved

Can you hear my voice from afar?

In the wind you may hear gentle whispers

To rekindle the light that you are.

For you are all my beloved

The most wonderful miracle done

Held deep in the warmth of your memorable heart

Is the love you will one day become.

(c) 2007 J.M.Harrison


Who is blind ...

The man who stumbles in the ditch

Or he who does not see?

Who is deaf ...

One who cannot hear a word

Or he whose ears are closed to peace?

Who is dumb ...

The man who cannot speak his name

Or one with too much to say?

Who is weak ...

He who cannot lift a weight

Or one who lies always?

Who is free ...

The man who was a slave

Or one not wrapped in doubt?

What is life ...

The soul that lies within

Or the man perceived without?

What is joy...

The smile upon a face

Or a feeling sensed from the heart?

What is truth...

The judgement of the 'right'

Or wisdom that will last?

What is light ...

The sun up in the sky

Or awakening at hand?

What is God ...

A way of difference

Or of unifying man?

There is no "I" in True Presence.

Imagine that the "I" you perceive as that which constitutes you does not exist, for that is the reality of being truly present. When we are truly present we realise that there is no"I", that we are all a reflection of the same presence in various guises. Being truly present, we no longer perceive consciousness as residing within the human body, but as a unified constant encompassing both physical and spiritual realities. So the more "me" or "I" that remains in our awareness, then the less present we actually are.

There is a dissolution of separateness whereby the universal consciousness cannot divide one part from another, for it is wholeness in action. There is a sensing that at some point of origin, all came into being from one point, as if everybody and everything is a resulting reality from the explosion of one pure primordial atom. We see that the mind provided the "I" as a conceptual boundary to provide one understanding of the reality of existence, but having now transcended the old workings of the mind, we have also transcended the "I" that associated it's uniqueness and existence from being separate.

It is this presence that reveals our true selves, our true nature. Presence itself can be said to be automatically functioning, in that it has no need for reflection of identity because it is whole, it is completeness. It acts through a perfectly natural process of divine love. It requires nothing in return, and expects nothing. It unifies through sharing and unconditionally giving love, joy, health and happiness to all being, human or otherwise. There is no logic followed, because logic is another conceptual boundary of the outdated mind. True presence is being in the flow of universal consciousness and therefore not comprehending anything other than the unified state of existence.
The "I" becomes left behind, an outgrown entity left behind in the wake of the ongoing progress of conscious evolution.

So to find yourself, you must truly let your self go

This world means little to me
For I have seen Babylon
In the midst of another beautiful day
Was my mind set free to the beyond

A collection of souls living harmony's way
Nestled in the love of the One
I saw all this with my own two eyes
The day that I saw Babylon

Deep in the heart of miraculous joy
I wandered amidst the ineffable
Beloved children of eternity's way
Offspring of the unforgettable

Travelled afar the Sirian star
Awakening all to become
The light of the mind unveiled the divine
The day that I saw Babylon

The Third "I".

As there are three parts that combine to give a whole human being (body, mind and spirit) there are three corresponding layers of the self or ego that provide us with differing perceptions of consciousness. They may be explained as the following;

The Insignificant Self: The first "I".

This is the "I" that we have grown up as understanding to be our true self. In fact it is the lowest vibration we can reveal of ourselves, the reality of which is based upon the fractionate state and of being separate, for it seeks to validate its own worth by distancing itself from others, seeing that someone else is better or worse, richer or poorer, pretty or ugly, more intelligent or plain stupid and so on. Constantly judging the value of itself and others by appearance or description and not by sense or feeling, it provides a distorted reality that has no long term significance, which is why it may be called the insignificant self.

The Significant Self: The second "I".

This is the "I" that has found some experience feeling the connections that exist between all things. By reaching a recognition or having indications of your true self, you have begun to awaken the real you, started a journey destined towards the revealing of the true self. Very often this is something we touch upon by what we perceive as fate or accidents. In reality it is an opportunity that presents itself to partake in life at a deeper, more subtle level. We experience the aspects of the significant self through the higher or metasenses, those feelings that take us beyond that which is recognised by the ordinary senses of the body. The process of life provides an unlimited number of these opportunities to allow us to experience this such as falling in love, the birth of our children, even chronic illness or the loss of those close to us. Through these or similarly powerful eventualities we may begin to feel that there is something more to existence, a certain hidden something that we were previously unable to perceive, for they provide gateways to sensing an underlying intelligence behind all existence.

The True Self:
The third "I".

The irony of the third "I" is that it cannot be separate, so therefore it cannot be "I" in the normal sense of the word. It is more like "We" or "Us", but even they do not provide a fullness of the understanding. It just is. It is inclusive existence no longer separated by the individual boundaries sustained by the previous forms of self. This is where there is no separation between the self and all existence, for what you are is existence, your understanding no longer "my awareness" but awareness herself. That everything that was, is or will be is one, for there is no distance between them, they are combined in a oneness that is the eternity of now. Things are just not simply feeling or seeming like they are interconnected, for they are one, all life perceived and lived through one unitive consciousness. This is the awakening of you true self into presence. You are whole, you are complete, you are one.

Into the Pure 'Ness'.

The suffix -ness refers to a quality state or condition of that which it is aligned with. In this case the ness is that quality or aspect exuded from presence, the expression revealed from being in the now.

When we are most present, we are most conscious. No longer aware but aware-ness herself. We become the quality that is directly derived from the state. We are complete. Existing in whole-ness, and no longer perceiving reality purely from the physical or mental states, we experience the presence of being rather than the thoughts and feelings of our minds and bodies. Identification with form ceases and we become awakened to the finer form of consciousness.

Lose your 'self' to find yourself. And when you find yourself, you will find all others. You will still be you, yet you will no longer see things from the perspective of the 'I', for you will become we. For we is the spiritual condition for the mind that transcends all realms of being. When we forget our spiritual nature, we may return to the vibration of it by remembering that WE ARE ALL ONE which in turn permits us to recall and reaffirm that reality.

So what is it that allows us to forget or ignore our ability to manifest our expression of ness ? The answer is ... us. If we hold ourselves back, deny it's existence, resist it or confuse what it is, then the mind has pulled us back down into the realm of objective thought. To stay with presence is to be present. To hold the moment, not dwelling on past or future, but to recognise the now, expressed through the ness. The now is presence. This is what you are. The eternal you that transcends ordinary thought and touches truth.

When we are present, we see that what we really are is consciousness. What we align the body & mind with is what dictates the consciousness we allow ourselves to utilise, and therefore what our connection to presence is. How we treat and maintain the body & mind elements of our being is the deciding factor of our reality. This is the spiritual meaning of purity. To not allow the possibility of dysfunctional being. To not abuse ourselves or others physically, mentally or emotionally. When we learn to do this, we have learned to remove the self placed obstructions to finding our true selves. The resounding consciousness of truth becomes apparent, for truth is not only an answering tool, but a quality of being. When truth becomes a quality of our being, we enable the recognition of its existence or its dissolution. The same knowing applies to all qualities or attributes, for we are able to perceive their reality or their lacking. All except one. That one is called God-ness. For every single part of existence is an expression of 'God' in some form. We might not be aware of it, but we are not always aware of what we are. This unified state of consciousness reveals a most humbling thought; that the 'God' found within you exists everywhere else.

The Mind of 'I'.

The mind of 'I' is the resulting action of the ego that considers the individual self as being the most. The most important, the most right, the most intelligent, the most gifted. It is from this fractionate state of being that mankind has created and continues to create wars, illness, separation and religious differences.

If we as human beings want to evolve on from the mind of 'I', then we need to open ourselves to the spiritual reality of oneness and to recognise that we are all one. That the same atoms that merge to create you, create everything and everybody else. The vast majority of what we are is space. All space is filled by one interconnected consciousness that we become aware of when most awakened to the state of presence.

So let's try and forget the 'I' and move on to the 'We', for this description is most accurate when reflecting our sacred nature. For when we no longer allow separation from each other because of our bodies and our minds, the resulting state or condition is a spiritual one. The spiritual state in its most present reality is one of total unification, for the purest quality of spirit discerns no difference in the animate or the inanimate. Time and space become inconsequential, seeking and discerning truth the navigation system of the mind.

When most present, we see that 'you' and 'I' are truly one. 'I' is no longer of importance because for its very existence it requires separation from an inclusive state, for the spiritual state above all is an inclusive state of oneness and presence that cannot be divided.

All life is an expression of presence.
All presence is an expression of 'God'.

The Most Beautiful Experience.

The single most fulfilling and rewarding experience we can have in this life may be gained by entering our highest states of consciousness. This elevation of the mind facilitates the ability to awaken ourselves to our true divine nature, allowing our greatest understanding of what we fully are to come into action in the physical world. This experience is a complete and wholesome experience, for it does not lack input from, or provision for, any area of our being. Our body, our mind of emotion and our mental framework all become unified with our spiritual nature, yielding a unified one. In this state we can experience the greatest wonders of our potential.

Residing in this state, we are drawn to wholeness and to well being. The well being of all people and indeed of all life becomes our natural empathy. We no longer arrive at choices governed by the individual mind and emotion but via a pure instinct to share Oneness, to help all forms of life because we understand that they are interconnected with ourselves. In fact in many ways we no longer perceive differences in each other, for we have awakened to the spiritual reality where we are all one. We have entered a natural flow of higher instinct that enables a true reflection of our being to establish its presence.

When the objective mind is surpassed, we enter a miraculous world. A world where healing another being can be instantaneous, where our new senses suggest a different reality of human existence. This is because all the normally separate aspects of our being have become unified, and in becoming unified we now have all these aspects and qualities at our immediate disposal. We are a fully functioning body, mind and spirit. Everything becomes fully automatic because all needs are seen and met. Understanding, then entering and holding this state is the next evolutionary step for humanity. For if we can achieve this, then the wars of the world will have finished for good, illness will become understood and eventually overcome, and life and death will be seen as what they are, an amazing continuous incredible adventure.

Seeds of Oneness.

Oneness is a state, quality or condition that we can all awaken to. It is not some rare ability or some 'commodity' that can be bestowed or sold on by a special chosen few. We are able to accept or provide guidance for each other, but the possibility of the realisation of this state exists for all. Nobody but ourselves can give ourselves Oneness for it is a seed that resides within. Once we discover it, our deepening awareness of it will correspond to how we nurture that seed. How we subsequently choose to look after it or whether we neglect it. The blossoming of consciousness arrives as a direct result of what we have allowed to rule and guide us. Our thoughts, words and deeds will provide the fullest evidence of that focus we have applied to our lives, for what we choose, we become.

If we want to realise more Oneness then we can no longer think of ourselves as separate beings, for the essence of Oneness is being and residing in the One consciousness. When we have let go of the old redundant self and the corresponding limited empirical mind, we can then open up to new beginnings. For we are that new beginning and it is only the tiresome wanting to hold onto the illusions of self and matter that slows us on our journey.

When we choose Oneness, she welcomes her into her home like a long lost friend. When we ignore her, we cannot understand what is missing in our lives. We attempt to fill the emptiness with things that will inevitably decay or that temporarily relieve our inner suffering. Yet we must seek the cause in order to establish the true cure.

We cannot become whole until we take care of all of the parts of our being; our bodies, minds and our spirits. Our consciousness or connection to spirit resides within the field of vibration that we sustain through choice. Having this freewill of choice means that we have the ability to discern what we become or what we feed the seed of our consciousness with. Imagine consciousness to be like a seed you plant at home in a small flowerpot. If you constantly neglect it, put it in the dark, take little or no care of it, forget to water, it will lead a stunted and difficult pattern of growth, maybe become diseased and not reach the natural potential that it has. But if we visit that seed daily, and it is placed under the right conditions required for growth, by supplying the needs or requirements of that plant we will eventually witness the blossomed beauty of the flower in all its glory. So it is with consciousness. It is our freewill that decides what we feed our seed of consciousness with. Love or hate, I or We; these and many other choices become recognisable in our daily lives.

Taking the road to the unitive life of Oneness requires the dissolution of all previous understanding of self that we have gained over our lifetimes. We are brought up understanding that I am this, or that you are that, my name is this, I was born then, my job is this, my degree was attained at such and such university etc.... but all this goes. It does not go completely from memory, but it fades from the focus of your mind because it becomes irrelevant, it resides with the old self.

Many people will hold back from entering the eternal now of Oneness because it denies the security of themselves that they have spent years accumulating. For when we enter we see that all those matters we once presumed to be so important and with which we aligned our identity, no longer matter at all. For the world of matter is ironic for it does not matter at all.

Experiences we gain in this lifetime on Earth, allow us to move forward and evolve. Only when we display competence in our ability to best nurture our true selves can we then contemplate another existence. For then the blossomed flower recognises the seed and the seed recognises the blossomed flower.

The Blessed Opportunity of Humanity.

The potential for human beings to evolve at this time is enormous, for as we move deeper into an understanding of the source of our being, we approach a time that corresponds with the quickening of the evolutionary cycle. This speeding up allows for the present rapid growth in awareness of individual, group and mass consciousness.

Unlike all other forms of life on Earth, humanity is blessed with the chance to discern the truths of being, to grasp the knowledge of the individual parts that make us whole and to develop each part to its fullest possibility. We are not bodies, for we are also minds full of thoughts and emotions, and should we able to allow it, we may become one with the stream of universal consciousness that radiates from the Source of All Being. At some point in our evolutionary cycle, we will all realise this state of being. Some have already, many more are about to, and eventually this elevation in consciousness will occur in all, for the benefit of all life in the Universe.

The transformational change to Oneness is possible because the miracle of you is possible. The joy of life lies before you, the incredible wonders of nature are there to inspire you, the sacred possibilities of consciousness can not only take you away from the separation created by your body and mind, but may replace what previously existed there with a fullness of higher being that transforms yourself and others, creating a better world for our children and our children's children.

The World is Awakening.

Consciousness is awakening people throughout the world, for we are in a time of immense changes on Earth. Beginning to realise that all people and life itself is essentially ONE is fundamental to understanding the process that we are undergoing.
The Oneness of being allows us to perceive the interconnectedness of all life. Not just human life, but ALL life.

When we leave behind our connection to the material world and the limited identity of a material self, we enter a new phase of life experience. We enter the eternal present. We understand that our perception is correlative to experience and understanding, but that all experience is unlimited. That each one of us has everything we need to move our consciousness.

Simplicity is the key, for what complicates and obstructs our purest existence is identification with the body and the mind. When we move into that profundity we all may share, then all previous ties become dissolved and yet we remain unified with all existence. We see that ALL IS ONE. You are a reflection of me and I a reflection of you. That we are all aspects of the same source of creation.
