Identity always seemed to be a consistent force to interact with. “Because of who you are, you are ‘destined’ to face certain challenges and no mater what you do, you cannot change this.” This notion haunted my mind for some time, along with other notions, and began to think about the idea that we are simply metaphysical machines. Where, and when, is it that we can truly become sentient and achieve mastery of ourselves and our destiny. I AM is an attempt to state that “our future is in OUR hands and not pre-destined” by a series of illustrations of all aspects of the Human Being as spiritual, intellectual, and emotional creations. My hope is by understanding one self and how our thoughts and feelings operate within us, we are then able to better navigate through our thoughts, feelings, and the beliefs that are anchored in them.
