Before I understood the "I Am That" concept from the Advaita Vedantic perspective based on my studies of the Siva Sutras, I had journeyed through the Supernal Triad of the Qabalah's Tree of Life. I believe that my understanding of the Supernal Triad, particularly spending at least one month studying each of the Sephiroth, really left a lasting neuronal impression that seemed to creep within my imagination as I traversed the Siva Sutras.
I can't help but continually associate the "I" of "I Am That" with the crown Sephiroth "Kether" as representing pure potential, or pure awareness. Also, the "Am" of "I Am That" with the masculine directive will of the Sephiroth "Chokmah" leading to wisdom. Lastly, the "That" of "I Am That" with the creative feminine force of the Sephiroth "Binah". Hence, from potential which can be associated with our imagination, do we formulate a will, which then is acted upon or manifested. However, the feminine force of "Binah" is not just creative, but is "understanding".
If you think about it, are we not all acting in such accordance with our everyday lives? Do we not first imagine what we want/need to do, then based upon how much will-power we use, we proceed accordingly to have such imaginings manifest in our lives. From our manifestations, are they not experiences/catalysts that cause us to grow in wisdom leading to understanding?
Overly educated and continuously exploring and revealing more behind the veil.
