My Introduction as I Am I
by Swami Shyam

 

Birth took place, so I am not I; rather, I am body, I am child. I became son, I became father, I became mother. I became earth. I became herbs, plants, food, and fruits. I became all that is found on this earth.

The body grew and I became grown-up. I became student and I became teacher. I became buildings—house, home, and school. I became all relations. I became the sport of running and I became all sports.

I became breath. I became sitting. I became stillness. I became quietness of breath. I became movement—all kinds of activity and all kinds of action. I became senses. I became perception of the senses. I became mind. I became thinking, the function of mind. I became objects perceived by the senses. I became the sense of joy. I became the sense of pain and suffering. I became happiness. I became unhappiness.

I became knowledge. I became sleep. I became ignorance. I became forgetfulness. I became dream. I became illusion. I became the forms, objects, and people of the dream.

I became the sense of separation. I became the function of illusion. I became the sense of division. I became the sense of unity. I became the sense of difference. I became wakefulness. I became the conditions of consciousness as wakefulness.

I became young. I became desires. I became emotions. I became association. I became love for things and people. I became hatred of things and people. I became the sense of attachment. I became the sense of getting away. I became loneliness. I became imagination. I became fear. I became ghost. I became sickness.

I became the light of knowledge. I became biography material. I became knowledge of history and all its descriptions. I became the past. I became the present. I became the future. I became the speaker of past descriptions and present descriptions, of future hope and imagination.

I became fight, I became battle, I became war, I became weapons, I became killing. I became running from killing. I became the sense of saving. I became the sense of cessation of war. I became the feelings of “no war.”

I became work—the job. I became busy-ness. I became all kinds of business. I became profit. I became loss. I became customer. I became seller. I became goods.

I became journey. I became cars, trains, airplanes, sea ships, and boats. I became passengers. I became accidents.

I became fire. I became water. I became creatures in the water and creatures in the fire. I became air. I became the constant blowing of air—wind, breeze, storm, hurricane, and tornado.

I became the sense of individuality. I became the sense of many, of multiplicity.

I became the condition of old age. I became weakness. I became ailment. I became frustration. I became disappointment. I became loss of understanding. I became loss of experience. I became multiple diseases. I became doctors. I became medicines. I became cure. I became the sense of incurability. I became hopelessness.

I became neutrality. I became disinterest. I became interest in life.

I became the sense of immortality. I became the sense of mortality. I became the sense of dying. I became death. I became corpse. As I became birth, so I became the disappearance of body.

Still, I am I.
