Welcome to the forum Continuum.
I like very much what you say about the 'I am enlightened' part. It does add a subtle hint of duality. I too, am not enlightened, as you'll likely find the same for most of us here on this forum. Most of us here are just sharing our experiences, none greater than any other.
The way I see 'I AM', is that all is already I AM, yet, I AM, can experience itself as anything (more limited, or less limited), but ultimately, there is not separation between I AM and the relative form it experiences through. I AM Enlightend2b, ( I AM Mike) yet I AM also.....that I AM. Confusing enough
Glad to hear you're here for growth and learning. Enjoy the journey.
