Be Still and Know by Patty Hawley

Many are familiar with Psalm 46:10 which says, “Be still and know that I AM God.” But how many know what this statement means? Since God is Absolute indivisible infinity with no other being possible, who is God telling to be still? Why would God tell Himself to be still unless He had identified Himself as something other than I AM, the Life-Giving Principle?

In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. (John 1:1). The Word refers to Jesus Christ as mentioned in John 1:14 “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” An author uses words and God (I AM) wrote the Book of Life with Jesus Christ as the Perfect Man or I AM that I AM. Christ is one with God as God incarnate since God is a faceless, formless, undefinable, invisible Spirit. God is a Triune Being operating as God the Father (I AM), God the Son (I AM that I AM aka Perfect Love) and God the Holy Spirit (Comforter and Divine Revealer).

Everyone knows that the characters in any book are the author’s creation as extensions of his intelligence and imagination. Likewise, each character in God’s Book of Life is an extension of God and could honestly say, “I of my own self can do nothing. It is the Father (Author) within that doeth the work. He thinks and writes, and I simply perform whatever He writes. When you see me, you see the Author. I live in the Author and the Author lives in me. Hence the Author and I are one.” Now we can see that in Psalm 46:10 that God is telling his characters (His creations) to be still and know that I AM God. I AM the Author of Life, and I AM all that ever was, IS and ever shall be. You move and live and have your being in Me. The Book of Life is already finished, and all the characters are simply playing their roles until each one realizes they are the Author…I AM that I AM. Each character was given a tiny spark of Love (I AM) as Light in their heart and each one must expand that spark from All That is Possible back to God – All That Already IS by experiencing BEING God (Perfect Love) in their character and declaring as Jesus did, “I AM the Truth, I AM the Way, I AM the Resurrection and the Life. The Father and I are One.”

The Book of Life is Holographic where everything already exists in Heaven but must be made manifest on Earth through the characters in the book. There are billions of characters with no two ever being exactly alike. The Awareness is the same Infinite I AM for each character, but each character is a unique combination of astral, mental, emotional, and physical attributes that are constantly changing even though the Awareness of Being or I AM never changes. I AM is forever eternal and Perfect. Every character goes through many states of being (names as natures or qualities of God) until they become still and know that I AM really one with God (I AM that I AM) as Christ the Perfect Man (Manifestation of God) operating in the Holy Trinity. With this Spiritual understanding the character can now rest or abide in I AM (All That Already IS). There is no more seeking, resisting, fearing, desiring, or striving. There is simply peace, joy, harmony, love, abundance, freedom, and all things good and wonderful. They hear: “Fear not, little flock, for it is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom. Ask and it is given. All that is mine is thine for thou art in me and I in you.”

If a character is not still and doesn’t listen to the Author and know the Oneness with all of Life, then that character’s life experience can be scary and unknown. It is as if that character went freelance and started writing its own script instead of following Scripture (The Way). The only real problem in the Book of Life is one of false identification which leads to separation, duality, fear, and the Prodigal Son experience instead of the Christ experience of infinitely expanding from glory to glory. Since separation is impossible in an indivisible infinity, the life experience of the misidentified freelance character is really a dream that the character experiences until they surrender and listen to the Author again. God through Christ provides perfect instructions in the Book of Life on how to forgive the dream and remember the Truth of Unity.

The Bible gives the Law in Mark 11:24 stating: “What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” Here God is instructing his characters (Himself in disguise) how to BE God, the Author of Life, by calling things that are unseen as though they are seen. The Kingdom of Heaven is finished and exists within each character here now. A character can go within their mind, which is God’s Mind, and imagine already having their desire here and now. It is really simple. You still the body so that you are absent from the body and present with the Lord (Christ – I AM that I AM). Next, you listen as though you heard someone such as an Angel of the Lord or a friend telling you the good news that you have received what you asked for which is called “That”. You feel the thrill and joy of already having your desire until your heart explodes with love and gratitude. Now you know that you are pregnant with a child (manifestation) of the Lord and in due time it shall appear to you in your world. God loves those who delight in the Law. Since God is All and All is God, God is experiencing Life through his created characters. All desires come from God and are the ways and means to demonstrate that you are a Life-Giving Spirit, one with God as the Christ (I AM that I AM). Eventually, using the Law is perfected and then transcended as God takes the final step and clears away all false perception and you rest in True Knowledge. The Law is replaced by the Promise where one is incorporated into the Spiritual Body of Christ. Your eye is now single, and your body is full of Light.

No identity is lost as all is God (I AM) always and forever. Jesus, Buddha, St. Germaine, Kwan Yin and others who have transcended the physical, emotional, mental and astral planes to know they are the ONE and only I AM made manifest continue on in higher dimensions of Reality which never ends because God/Life is infinite. All is well and all is One indivisible infinity acting out the Book of Life also called the Akashic Records.

Be still and know that I AM God and that there is no other.

Here is a fun way to think about it: let’s say that you have a lump of dough and cut it in half and make biscuits with one half and donuts with the other half. Which do you prefer? Biscuits or donuts? It is a bit of a trick question and gets into the Spiritual understanding of why a Self-Actualized being really can have no preferences or choices. You may have given the dough different shapes and names and made them look and taste different, but traced back to their origin of dough they are one and the same substance. How can there be choice or preference when all is the ONE nothingness (formless Spirit) out of which everything (I AM that I AM) is made? Is it not the same with all people? Every person that appears is really the Impersonal I AM just with a different shape and name. Some people may APPEAR mean and pessimistic while others may APPEAR nice and optimistic. However, we are warned not to judge by appearances because underneath the personality is God who is Impersonal and no respecter of persons. If you deny Me, I shall deny you also.

Next time the mind is over-thinking, and you are a bit confused, remember to Be Still and Know that I AM God here now as Christ being perfectly guided by the Holy Spirit. This Holy Trinity never sleeps and is perfectly guiding the All in All because it is omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent.
