Know yourself

If you are looking for a place to begin, start with I AM. This is Life’s most basic fact. You can dive straight into it.

I AM animates this small 162-pound mass, circulates its blood, digests its food, eliminates its waste, grows its hair and does all of the other things necessary to a normal existence. Without I AM, I’m ash in an urn.

Shouldn’t I at least begin to acquaint myself with this power?

At this point, I know this much: If I am conscious of I AM, all is well. If I am not conscious of I AM, all is not well.

I may be wise in the ways of the world. But worldly wisdom will not protect me. Calamity and misfortune will land at my door. I am not being punished. I am ignorant, is all.

I AM. Is there a higher authority? I see none other. I know none other.
