“Moses knew he was hearing the voice of God, but he didn’t know how he would say that to others. “Tell them,” said God, “that I AM WHO I AM.” This passage has been translated and interpreted in myriad ways, as are all religious stories.
One interpretation says God described Himself not as “I AM WHO I AM” but rather “I AM WHO I SHALL BE.” From a spiritual perspective, both are accurate—because who we are in essence exists beyond time.
What’s most important is the revelation that the God within us is our essential self; the essence of God is the essence of each of us, and the essence of each of us is the essence of God. When we are speaking from our true selves, or from love, we are expressing what the Voice for God has told us.
Through prayer and meditation, we begin to hear the small, still Voice for God. Our purpose on earth is to then reflect, in words but also in actions, what we have heard.”
