I Am …

I was regretting the past and fearing the future.
Suddenly my Lord was speaking.
“My name is I am”
He paused. I waited. He continued.
“When you live in the past with its mistakes and regrets, it is hard. I am not there.
My name is not I WAS.
When you live in the future, with its problems and fears, it is hard. I am not there.
My name is not I WILL BE.
When you live in this moment it is not hard. I am here.
My name is I AM.
