Our true identity is our Eternal Self or God Self, also called Monad or Mighty I AM Presence.

Our God Self is like an ever flowing well that springs forth from Spirit and feeds us both Spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically. However, man in his search for material possessions and pleasure has so removed himself from this inner well and self, that as a result we have dried up inside, both Spiritually, mentally and emotionally. Just as a river runs dry if it removes itself too much from its source, so man runs dry Spiritually if he removes himself from his Divine Source.

This has happened to humanity as a whole and can be seen in the lack of lustre in man’s eyes. The event of man’s withdrawal from his Divine Source is referred to in the Bible as the “fall of man.” It was the moment when we collectively “fell” unconscious of our true identity.

If we want to have peace in this world, and joy and happiness, then we have to draw closer to God again. The process of restoring our awareness to the oneness with our God Self and all life is called “integrated ascension.”

An Integrated Ascended Master is someone who restores oneness with his Monad or Mighty I AM Presence. An Integrated Ascended Master is someone who realizes himself as the Eternal Self.

Author's Bio: 

Dr Joshua David Stone was one of the most influential Spiritual teachers, leaders and forerunners of our time. He had a Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology and was a licensed Marriage, Family and Child Counselor in California, USA.
He served as Official Spokesperson for the Planetary Ascension Movement and made his mark in the Consciousness Community as a prolific writer, authoring the 15-volume Easy to Read Encyclopedia of the Spiritual Path, published in several languages, as well as eight major Ascended Master Training Courses and several comprehensive Training Programs ranging from channeling, the psychology of astrology, the Book of Life of God, to his legendary 2,000 page Counseling Manual, and much, much more.
Today, the I AM University is the one and only Integrated Ascended Master Training Facility in this world. It stands firmly on the foundation of a comprehensive and ever-expanding curriculum which Dr Stone dedicated his life creating.
In 2005, Dr Joshua David Stone passed over to the Spirit world where he continues to Spiritually support the expansion of the I AM University the continuation of which he entrusted into the hands of Gloria Excelsias, his long-term personal assistant and protégé.
Dr Stone is one of the most widely read authors in the New Age Movement and known as the world’s most trusted source for integrated Spiritual development. http://www.iamuniversity.org

Gloria Excelsias is the President of the I AM University, an educational institution with focus on Spiritual and psychological development that was founded by the late Dr Joshua David Stone in 2004 and handed over to her care and leadership in 2005, at Dr Stone’s passing. As Dr Stone’s personal assistant, close friend and protégé, she received ongoing personal training in applied transpersonal psychology and integrated ascension which would prepare her consciousness for her later service work as the University’s President. Having moved the I AM University from California to Salzburg, Austria, her native country, she is now passionately dedicated to running and evolving the I AM University as an inspired writer and speaker, placing thematic priority on Spiritual psychology, the re-integration and updating of ancient occult teachings and the overall unfoldment of human consciousness.
