Gobbledegook usually works for me.

Or at least" I " think it works.


Here a bit of Gobbledegook history copied from the interwebs.

What exactly is gobbledygook, and where does the word come from? Texas Congressman Maury Maverick
coined the word in 1944 to describe the frustrating jargon used by policymakers in Washington D.C.. It reminded him of the sound of turkeys gobbling.

I AM is a self reference.....




' I AM is a self reference.....'

So what is the difference between a Western I AM and a Eastern I AM? You didn't answer in a previous Post except with gobbledegook

You need to use words such as I Am to converse with others but when you go BEYOND words you will find the I AM used by Jesus is not referring to a individual SELF but individuality in Oneness.....

Look you....I have told you enough times of the difference. We have had this conversation many times already. Fine; you don't understand my answer. No need to call it that.

I Am the Universal I.


So what is the difference between the Universal I and the Universal I Am ?
East and West are part of the Universe so I personally can't see a difference.

Do Pagans exist? Am I a Pagan? Do Muslims exist? Am I a Muslim? Are there any differences between the two?

Reality is a vast expanse - with many contradictory and conflicting elements.

I Am the Universal I just as much as I Am a nematode in a puddle.

The thing is with listing all these "sins" is that no one can know what are sins in Gods eye. If there were a number of sins as you suggest, the bible wouldn't be able to cover them all, even if it were just a book of things not to do, so who is to say what is a sin and what is not?

That is one of the reasons I turn inwards for the answers.

Honza,

Thanks for your response. Your understanding of the I AM is the understanding that many others would have of the ego. With this in consideration it makes it easier to understand why you associate the I AM with evil. The difficult thing for me is to understand your posting on a different thread about the I AM talking to you or putting in your mind various things that have become a source of concern or agony for you. This seems to indicate that you view the I AM as something extraneous to you. In other words it appears as a contradiction of your understanding of the I AM.
