I am

Who what Is God

I am in everyting
The voice of the birds when it sings
The harsh cost from the wasp when it stings
Liken me unto rings
The unbroken circle without ends or beginnings
I am attached to it all with multidimensional strings
In out through to, thoughts of thoughts n things of things
Up in da sky without wings
I am the sky
I am the truth n I am the lie
Always tryin to separate
Always tryin to differentiate
Because ego is inflated
The dark part which I am created
Loved n hated
And even the fear is too overated
I am the fear
The lesbian n queer
Who can see past their own nose?
I am in it all cos that's what I chose
Goin to infinity everyting grows
The joys the woes
Love fear clouded clear
From front to rear
All seen n unseen
All clean n unclean
But who made any1ne a judge of what is clean?
Prophets or books of history
Won't unfold the mystery
I am is in you n me
Unlocking of Divinity key after key after key
All I can see
I am exists
I'll even go what humans would call lower I'm talkin in shit n piss
Can a human mind comprehend this?
The soul it knows
All that knowledge we've learnt to blows
How can it be true?
They say the devil got a hold of you
I am says I am your so called devil to
Until 1ne can see the oneness
In the unbless n bless
Through pain n stress
Trial n test
It will always be hard to manifest
The world you desire to see
For not acknowledging every aspect of me
I am the roots & I am the tree
The leaves that grow thereon
The ground that they fall upon
Look n feeel me everywhere
And appreciate the moment cos that's the main reason you came here
To live this yin yang science
Moan don't moan
Groan don't groan
Be happy if ya like
Experience all aspects of this life
And re-member
I am All colours, including black n white

Popeye sang "I'm Popeye, the sailor, I yam what I yam what I yam and I yam what I yam and that's all that I yam 'cause I yam what I yam" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8TRoMSG-5I

A few thousand years before the Popeye ate his spinach to become mighty, there was another almighty being who said "I AM WHO I AM" (Exodus 3:14, most versions put it in capitals!). In the poem "I am exists" and "I am says ..." have similar grammar to "I AM has sent me to you" (Exodus 3:14).

I wonder if that's the origin of phrases like "He thinks he's the big I am" (like in the 2010 film).


Exodus 3:2-14 "There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. So Moses thought, "I will go over and see this strange sight — why the bush does not burn up." When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, "Moses! Moses!" And Moses said, "Here I am." ...
Moses said to God, "Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you,' and they ask me, 'What is his name?' Then what shall I tell them?" God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I AM has sent me to you.'"

God is given many names. (e.g. 956 names & titles are listed in https://christiananswers.net/dictionary/namesofgod.html
and there are 99 names of Allah in Islam but without agreement what they are!)

But I think that "I AM" is not a good name!

Did you write that poem?

Does "I am attached to it all with multidimensional strings" refer to string theory, which can have 10 or 11 or 26 dimensions?

"Until 1ne can see the oneness" - or should that be "one" or "0ne"? (zero instead of number 1)!
"And re-member I am All colours, including black n white" - why the hyphen in "re-member"? Are black and white colours?

The poem reminds me of the beautiful poem by Mary Elizabeth Frye often said at funerals, where it is the dead person (rather than God) speaking:-
"Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die."

Hello Jeff
Yes I did write this piece
To answer some of your questions
Please don't read too deeply or try to logicalise it
I'm my opinion Spirit is illogical & changes at every moment so what is truth now may not be in ten seconds
Anyway
Multidimensional strings, this energy or being(mostly known as God) is attached to it all with these strings, not seen by the eye, I mean with the human eye we see the separation, for example the table the apple the car, everything appears to be separate things, take 1ne look at it all with that so called 3rd eye & see that there really is no separation and there actually cannot be. All exist as 1ne or none exist at all
Again. My opinion
So this should also explain the oneness, 1ne being you me anybody
I Love to play with this English language it's lika spellbook
Re-member
To say remember in mind as oppose to forgot & also re-member like reconnect those parts that have been disconnected
Obviously black n white are not colours but that verse fitted perfectly as I was writing
When I write I do not try to think, all of a sudden I feel the verse coming through and am forced to halt what I'm doing and put it down before it passes
Most times I don't even know whst I've written until I read it back
Thank you for the poem
I hope I've clarified some things otherwise keep it coming

What name would you call this being

Jeff  Male  East Sussex 28-May-2018 10:10 Message #4717885
Hi Rikco,

Thank you for such a clear and detailed explanation.


As you like word plays such as "re-member", you might like this:-

Rikco can be dismembered into Richard king coeur de lion.
In 1199 he was killed in France, then he was dismembered, and his body was buried in Fontevraud Abbey, his entrails in Chalus Abbey and his heart in Rouen Cathedral.
He should be re-membered.

It reminds me that at school more than 50 years ago our French class was told that when Napoleon's remains were brought from St.Helena to France, (to be buried in Les Invalides in Paris), they were in 6 coffins.
Then someone in the class, dismembering his name, said "No wonder he was called bone-apart!"
