I AM: the union of non-being and being

selections from the notebooks of Jack Haas


The ‘I’ and the ‘AM’ of ‘I AM’ denotes the division to be healed between consciousness and form, non-being and being, male and female, mind and body, spirit and soul. Once we recognize that the ‘I’ is outside, and the ‘AM’ is inside, and we are both of these if we are ‘I AM’, then we can begin to embrace the half we have neglected and so repair the cosmic damage from the fissure of God’s mind and will.

            Once we recognize that the ‘I’ is like standing outside of the house looking in- and is actually ‘outside’ of being- and the ‘AM’ is trapped inside, and that to be whole we must be both the ‘I’ and the ‘AM’- then we will begin to embrace the half we have neglected, and so repair the cosmic damage in the fissure of God- the division between consciousness and will, non-being and being, mind and body, spirit and soul.

            When we search back and finally isolate the ‘I’ within, it is no longer within, but is ‘outside’ all being, and encircles it completely. Thus this non-being ‘I’, requires a participating being- a body- to carry out the bridge between consciousness and will. This is how we connect heaven and earth, so to speak.

            Being and not-being are both independently immortal; ‘I’- changeless, eternal, non-being- ‘AM’- changing, immortal, being. I AM both, in which the whole is greater than the marriage of the two. The two are one.


           Male and female, ether and matter, spirit and flesh, both happening as one event. One.

           Emptiness and form, are the two that are one.

           To validate both the emptiness and the form, the space and the drama, the stillness and the song.


           To enter the void is to endure existing as non-being amidst being. This is to bring the Father down into the Mother.

           To enter matter is to endure existing as finite being amidst infinite non-being. This is to bring the Mother up to the Father.

           To be the center into which the Mother rises and the Father descends, is to be the one ever with the Mother and Father, and so to become Heaven and Earth, emptiness and Form, stillness and motion, which is to say- Avalon, which is Zion, the New Jerusalem.


I am the union of the Mother and Father. I am spirit and flesh. One.

I am male and female, yin and yang, the eternal now om orgasm of intimate creation.
