Moses, hearing the voice of God coming from the middle of the bush, said to him, ‘I am to go, then, to the sons of Israel and say to them, “The God of your fathers has sent me to you.” But if they ask me what his name is, what am I to tell them?’ And God said to Moses, ‘I Am who I Am. ‘This’ he added ‘is what you must say to the sons of Israel: “I Am has sent me to you.”’ And God also said to Moses, ‘You are to say to the sons of Israel: “The Lord, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.” This is my name for all time; by this name I shall be invoked for all generations to come.
This is a most important text from the Old Testament. “I AM”* is the mark of the self-conscious creature, Man, and is also the mark of Almighty God. It is also the truest statement that can ever be made.
Catholics share this basic intuited truth with all people called by the Holy Spirit, whatever their religious denomination. It is my understanding that in meditation and contemplation, with the mind quietly stilled under guidance from Holy Scripture, God’s “I AM” becomes known, in the eternal now. God willing, in that state, you may receive internal locutions from Him, but I repeat, God willing! You cannot take the Kingdom of Heaven by force.
I came across some meditation software(!) advertised on Google the other day. You can buy 1-3 MP3 files to listen to through headphones. A snip at several hundred dollars for the set. No mention of God is made, though, and I fear that unguided meditation can lead you down as well as up, so beware.
*If I may be allowed to be a bit norty, “Je suis” is “Jesus” without the little “i”.
