RHA Presents I Am I by David Knight

I am I: The In-Dweller of your Heart is a stepping stone for all who embark upon their own quest for ‘Spiritual' education and guidance. Even if you are comfortable with your own faith and religion, it can help you to explore new interpretations and issues on a personal or global scale.

The author David Knight has received and transcribed these passages of text in a process known as ‘Inner Dictation'. He describes this as writing from within the connection of his heart where peace, bliss, love and light reign supreme.

God's wisdom and teachings are laid out before you so you can simply choose and read whenever or whatever your heart needs or desires.  I am I entrusts that you will dip your toes into these guidelines, principles and simple directions, then dive headfirst into the waters of your own Divine essence.

These books will form the threads of life's new tapestry, each spun into 52 lessons from, to and through our own hearts and souls. They are like a father, mother, brother, sister, husband, wife, partner or personal friend who knows you better than you can ever know ‘yourself'.

Part 1 is a companion for life which does not judge, condemn or scold, but hopes to encourage, guide, console, teach and remind you of who and what you are, why you live and for what purpose too!  
Short extracts from some of the Lessons.

I know you all, the countless billions upon many worlds and civilizations throughout all time and in all places. No distance, no separation and no amount of time can detract or take any one of you away from me. I am the breath that you inhale and I am your heart that beats and pumps your life's energy in all the bodies that you have possessed in the past, present and if required the future too.
Likewise, you're mental, emotional and physical and astral bodies flow within and from me and travel to me also. Your current journey you call this lifetime is but a click of a finger, and passes through the eons of time almost unnoticed. Some would say and reflect that perhaps it means that they have gone by without achievement or recognition of any kind however I do not mean this.
Imagine for a moment a grain of sand on a beach, minute and almost invisible to the naked eye. This may be true but cup your hands together and you will find millions of grains that flow through your finger tips. Each one is alone but not alone, for together they are whole.

By being ‘together' then much is achieved. Results may not be shown in your physical world but in essence combined hearts with unconditional love achieve great and wonderful things. Some aren't seen or heard but acts of compassion and kindness reverberate beyond physical walls. They cascade like water over rocks wearing away hardened attitudes and stubborn ‘character' to lift and heal many deep within. These are the true achievements that people in society should give back to society.
So, the life that has manifested itself with your karma and inherited action may appear long and fruitful in its bodily cloth that you wear but beauty is, was and always will be a minute part of your Soul's history.

As your physical body becomes tired and worn due to its impermanent state the time will come when it can no longer function. As your Spirit drifts into light, ‘recognition' will befall those who have not believed or remembered that they are all things. Upon their recall of this understanding, the mind will know all that they have ever been. The energy spiraling with coherent intellect and wisdom of many a lifetimes cause and effect will imprint upon the Soul and they will then realize their goal and their true destiny.
I explain this because so many still do not comprehend the light that they are. Earthbound days of work, rest and play fill seemingly your every waking minute and this leaves little time for contemplation, peace and stillness.
The life you have can be a happy one even in the most dire of situations and courses of events that your karma (or of those around you) bring to interact with you. Do not be frightened or live a life of fear. Instead rise above negativity and anguish and therefore instill and share your love and goodwill.
The expression 'opposites attract' is only true of the physical impermanent world in which your embodiment resides at this time.I ask you, do you trust yourself? Do you trust in how you feel and think? Do you know your intuition and those ‘gut' feelings? If you do, then place yourself not only in trust of your ‘self' but also in me, then you have acknowledged the unbreakable bond that connects us all.

  With trust there is no fear. Having no fear brings you peace. In peace you find bliss. In bliss your permanent true self shines like a supernova with magical stardust spiraling and spinning in all directions. These earthly words do not and cannot do justice to such beauty.Opportunities throughout your lives will come and go. I ask you 'all' to grasp those that ring true and resonate within you. 

  When tasks are embarked upon in truth, with truth and by truth then nothing is impossible to be achieved. Only the limits that an individual proposes to themselves can prevent the ultimate goal of Ascension being attained. By trusting in all that you truly are, you can reach far beyond the stars. Limits and boundaries are falsely erected by insecurities of an illusionary mind. Push these aside with the love that is you. Trust me to give and help you with what you need and require and not in what you want and desire.

  As I have described on many occasions to you, you do not need to travel far from your home or disappear deep into a forest to discover me. To find me is not difficult for I am already within and outside of you, for I am all things.I am the stars at night shinning light through the darkness, I am every leaf and rock. I am Earth, fire, water and air. I am the wind that brushes against your face. I am the peace and tranquility you crave. All these I am and in truth, you are too. No separation,or division but oneness in all. 

  People's thoughts of doubt and despair still linger both on the Earth plane and on numerous vibration levels of energy. "How can I believe? What proof can you provide for me? Why do you let so many suffer in pain or anguish?" So many hearts ache or break and I see them and I feel them, for I know them all.

In whatever circumstances you find yourselves in, try to be content. I do not mean that you should not strive to achieve your aims and wishes but rather be satisfied with who and what you are in all areas of mind, body and Soul. These seem separate, but yet are whole and each have an important impact and effect upon each other. 

The mind can be a true friend or can lead you up the ‘garden path' to illusion and the confusion that we have discussed many times before. Do you let your senses control you, or do you control your senses? Your thoughts often betray you and disguise the truth that is but a breath or heart beat away. In realizing this you can put into place positive processes to quell your sensual desires and of what you ‘think' you want and need. Being positive helps breed greater positive sources of information and guidance to reach those who firstly reach out for themselves. Help and love is there for all if the body, Soul and mind work in unison to truly ‘see' it. 

The body is impermanent and is dying the moment the physical is ‘reborn'. This is why it is important to look after it, for it will aid and help you to achieve so much in your lives. Do not ever think that if your body is not what others call ‘complete' that you're any less a person or in truth a being of light and love in the eyes of my heart. Everyone is whole to me and your history and karma playing out has no bearing in whether you deserve to achieve your goal or not. That said, people can do crazy things for crazy reasons and again, choices that are made at any point in your life, you must be accountable for.  

Regarding the Soul, a long time ago it was written that those that those who were evil would always be held accountable and that as a punishment, could even lose their ‘Souls memories' as a way of discipline and lesson to be learned. If I were to say to you I could not do such things, would some think me weak or unable to intervene in any way shape or form? Right now though, you must think about this on a lesser scale.For instance, such as a teacher who controls their pupils with detention or if a parent berates their child for misdemeanors carried out.  

First and foremost, understand that I am ‘pure' love and light and freewill was granted not by any governing power other than that of whom and what you (and I) already are. For this reason, all your reaction to action, your cause to the effect can be nothing more than this.So in fact, your Soul shines as bright as a billion suns or instead as a dim light being covered by a blanket of hate and doubt. To remove such impediments simply tug or pull them away as quickly as you can, just as if you were removing a thorn from your foot or finger. Relief from anguish and pain will be instantaneous like morphine had been administered to you. In turn, your life will become free of false desires that bind and hold you within the pretense of embodiment. Your self-realization and your goal ahead will be lit, a shinning glory that you can wear like a crown, majestic and brilliant reflecting within and without all the love you truly behold. 

The ‘goal' as I have stated is always sought ‘within'. First and foremost it is the only way. You will not find it in any other human being, as every embodiment, no matter how loving, how peaceful or beautiful they are, they all have their own karma to balance and life and road to follow. 
About the Author

David was born into physical embodiment on the earth plane in July 1964. He is married to Caroline, and lives with their adopted cats Toby, Treacle, Pixie and Spiky in rural Northamptonshire in the UK.

Having experienced his parents divorce at a very early age, his childhood was gratefully still a happy one. The family was bought up upon and also hold onto their Christian values (which was not always easy as a teenager and making a way in the world). In growing up he describes himself as a Mr ‘Average' and  a Joe ‘Bloggs'. Whilst  working  in  various types of employment which ranged from factory work, HM Forces, Financial Services and self employment  his search for fulfillment changed form the exterior and without, to the interior - the ‘within'.

Spiritual ‘education' gained greater momentum and at the age of 21, a more urgent sense of dedication as well as a new realization had started to reveal itself. New evidence of and from God, with his Love and Light Hierarchy, were soon revealed to him through his life experiences. These showed that we are indeed all special and that our Souls have been given a unique opportunity in this lifetime.

With the aid of Spirit guides and beings of the ethereal planes the first book Pathway, was published in 1998. This laid the foundation for anyone who wished to develop and experience their heart's flame of love and light.

Almost immediately, Book 2 was being collated with and from Divine Guidance Deliverance of Love, Light and Truth became the 2nd gift that he now shares with you.

In early 2011, Book 3 -   I am I: The In-dweller of our Hearts will be ready for publication. Its text is simple, pure and amazingly profound. It is written through inner dictation from the heart- for all hearts to feel and share the love 'within'.

In your busy lives of work, family and responsibilities, the author states:

"It is your birthright to know your goal, your freedom and your very reason for living and being. You are everything and everything is you. God is you and you are God. Fulfill your true potential."

Hobbies include DIY, animals and nature, spending time with family and friends and PS3 online gaming

My Review of I Am I:

I am I
David Knight

I have yet to review a book of poetry or religion, or religious poetry. That is until author David Knight crossed my desk. 

I have always loved God and have tried my best to walk with Him, but at times, I found myself a few steps ahead of Him, while He trailed behind me. I tried living life the way 'I' thought best suited me and that maybe I knew what was better for 'me'.  Looking back now, I see that in order to do that, I had to close my eyes to what my heart and soul was telling me was right and wrong.  I didn't look too far into myself, or I would come to the realization, that in fact, what 'I' was doing, was NOT in His will. 

I have read the Bible from front to back like a lot of people have. I however cannot quote passages like a lot of people that have studied it. I feel after reading David's book, I have missed 'the meat' of the word that feeds and sustains a person's soul. Reading his book opened up a whole new side to my spiritual self. I feel it opened my eyes and allowed me to experience the goodness of the heavens, God, spirit, and the soul. It was like the missing ingredients in a recipe, without them it was incomplete, tasteless, useless. So, I took a spoon and added the missing ingredients to my heart, mind and soul and it made me feel like I was a whole person. A person that God meant for me to be. I was able to look at things in a whole new perspective which made my walk in sync with His.

If we walk day after day in the same way without change, we become stale. We just accept what is, and not what can be. We say our prayers, sometimes just out of habit or, oh let's just admit it, just out of habit. We get up and go to church on Sunday because, it's habit. We sit on the pews watching the Pastor's mouth moving, but in our minds we're thinking about what we are going to have for lunch after church. So, instead of getting fed for the week, we walk away as empty as we were when we walked in the door. I feel David's book 'I am I' can be used as a daily devotional, a lesson to be read before we go to work or to school. A lesson to be read before we lay our heads down at night. God is just a word or a thought away.  This book digs deep deep into the soul and plants wonderful seeds that will grow beautiful fruits of the Spirit. 

David is a very talented author who is passionate about what he writes. He comes across as a very loving, caring and dedicated person, and it all shines through his words in 'I am I'. Your soul and heart will never be the same, nor will you look at things the same way when you are finished with the book. You will be compelled to read it over and over again, each time finding a new morsel of joy. The love and compassion jump off of each page and envelope your heart, mind, and soul. It makes you feel warm and wanted inside. It helps you to understand the questions you may have had before you opened it.

I could go on and on about this wonderful book, but I want you to experience the great things it holds for yourself.

I give 'I am I' by David Knight five stars *****
