First, there is the "I am" part. What does that mean? To me, it means your own radiant wisdom is as close as your own mind and heart. The part of consciousness that knows itself to be.

I think, therefore I am :)
Not really what I meant. The part of our consciousness that knows itself to be is more than thinking.

I do not fear death. It is irrational to fear the unavoidable. I do, however, fear how I die.

But then you are a confused satan worshiper.

I have my own way of relating to this verse. It seems like a "pointing out instruction" or meditation teaching.

In a parallel sense, how the Buddhist see's Buddha.
