I am that I am that I am that…
This text comes from two traditions. In the Old Testament of the Bible, Moses meets God as a burning bush and the voice of God says "I am that I am." There is also a Vedic (Hindu) Sanskrit mantra "Soham" which means "I am that." "I am that" is a way of identifying oneself with the universe or ultimate reality.
