spiritual snobbery against that 'I'...
I am one of those people who fell into this camp. I was sure that the universal 'I' was inferior, that God was better than the 'I' and that one was better off affirming 'we are' rather than 'I Am'.
Well I have learnt my lesson....the universal 'I' nearly destroyed me as I was looking down upon it. It taught me to respect it like an equal. One does not just simply turn against I AM. It brings dire consequences.
I have learnt to love and respect the 'I' as a universal truth. Amen.
The Humility, the Pride and the Shame.
