What you realize is much more real than what 
you observe. The word “have” belongs to the observable universe. “I have children. I have friends. I have money. I have a car. I have knowledge.” When you say, “I have something,” it means you don’t really have it. When this body dies, where are those things?

The word “am” belongs to the realizable universe. I am. Anything you add onto I am is extra. Before you add anything onto I am, you have to taste your I am-ness.

Then you can say, “I am hungry, I am walking, I am a doctor,” because you don’t confuse that with the I am-ness of yourself.
