How Do You Say "I am"?

How many times do you say "I am" in the course of day? The answer would be an inaccurate count, at best, since the words slip out unnoticed, so unconsciously are they spoken. Probably no other words are so recurrent in our speech as this smallest of sentences, "I am." Yet it can be actually momentous in its consequences.

Do you find yourself saying, I am tired, I am sick, I am bored, I am afraid, I am discouraged, I am young, or, I am old? Or are you more likely to exclaim, I am thankful, I am confident, I am full of energy, I am neither young nor old? Watch your speech to see if it aligns you on the negative or the positive side, if it stamps you as a spokesman for mortal mind or for the divine Mind. And remember it is not merely speech which is to be censored, but thought as well.
