The reason we cannot realize our true Spiritual 'I AM' behind the mind's Temporary, 'I am' is because we mistake thoughts and feelings - and all their manifestations to be our reality. We believe we are conscious AS the mind, rather than conscious OF the mind.
In order to know our true reality we must meditate on our 'I am-ness' until all its shenanigans cease, which enables the mind to become a mirror - allowing us to truly see our true Self as we are.
Until the I am of Mind Consciousness is still, the I am of Spirit cannot be revealed and realized.
