The iPhone, the iPad, and the iAM

By Cary Bayer  

You’ll know that our world is headed in the right evolutionary direction from a spiritual standpoint when people are willing to line up as early and as long to get the iAM as they do for the newest versions of the iPhone and the iPad. The iAM, you ask? Yes, the iAM; it’s been here since mankind first set foot on this planet. As a result, there are no new versions of the iAM. In truth, even the expression “since time immemorial” doesn’t quite do justice to the reality of the iAM because iAM exists outside of time, in the timeless realm that we usually refer to as eternity. Not eternity as in horizontally going on forever but eternity as in a vertical manner in each moment of time.


When you want to know a fact fast google it on your iPhone. When you want to know something on a computer file go to your iPad. When you want to know who you are, go to your iAM.

Apple, of course, is the originator of the iPod, the iPhone, and the iPad. The word apple itself has powerful mythic resonances long before Steve Jobs was the apple of his father’s eye. To gain knowledge, Adam and Eve tasted an apple. A falling apple is said to have inspired Sir Isaac Newton’s intuition of the Laws of Gravitation. (A falling fig would have been more appropriate since he could have said to himself, “It’s a fig, Newton.” But then we don’t know much about the wit of the Brit, nor do we know his prescience, only his science.) To gain physical health, we’ve been taught that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, that an apple is the way. To gain spiritual health the iAM is the way.

What is the I AM?

The I AM is your true nature. It’s found at the transcendental part of your mind - beyond all perception, like the hearing of music from your iPad, the thinking of your mind while Googling on your iPhone, and even beyond the feelings you get listening to the most beautiful songs you’ve recorded on your iPod. It’s available at the depths of your being through meditation, as many hundreds of people have seen in the mediation classes I’ve taught since the age of 20.

When Moses encountered the Higher Power of the Universe in a burning bush and was told to tell Pharaoh to let the Hebrew people go, he asked, quite reasonably, who should he say sent him. The answer he received was obtuse: “I AM.”

Not as regal but quite poetic is Popeye the Sailor Man’s mantra-like motto: “I am what I am and that’s all that I am, I’m Popeye the Sailor Man.”

You can get directions from your iPhone and IPad. You are directed from your iAM.

The Beatles knew that money can’t buy you love. They also knew that money can’t buy you peace of mind. That’s why they learned the meditation that I’d practice for most of my life. And that’s why they went to meditate at Maharishi’s ashram in the foothills of the Himalayas.

Most people don’t realize that what they’re truly looking for - peace and happiness of the deepest magnitude - isn’t available in the world of things. The t-shirt that says, “He who has the most toys wins” isn’t true. It should read, “He who is the most things, wins.” In other words, when you live from your I AM, at the transcendental level of Being beyond time, you’re connected to that which is infinite. You can’t get more than infinite. Even Bill Gates’ money can’t buy an infinite number of things. Another wealthy person - Oprah Winfrey - learned to meditate in the same style as the Beatles - and made it available for free to her staff.

Jesus, trying to teach Jewish people of his time the deepest spiritual truths, said it eloquently: "Don´t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moths nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal.”

Physical things like iPhones rust and break, metaphysical realities do not. iPhones can be stolen, but nobody can steal your iAM.

The iPad comes in a mini design; the iAM comes in both mini and maxi. That’s because it’s smaller than the smallest things in the world and bigger than the biggest. It has no physical size but it has metaphysical depth.

Benefits of Knowing the iAM

The iPhone lets you make calls, hear music, see videos, take pictures and videos, and so on. The iPad lets you read books or use computer files. The iAm gives you infinite freedom, deep peace, great joy, awakening and enlightenment. So why aren’t you waiting in line to get your iAM?
