The apparently separate self or finite 'I' around whom all experience revolves is the true and only 'I' of eternal, infinite awareness—the 'I' of God's infinite, self-aware being that shines in each of our minds as the knowledge 'I am'—temporarily coloured by thoughts, images, feelings, sensations and perceptions but never being or becoming anything other than itself.
