I was regretting the past and fearing the future.

Suddenly God was speaking, “My name is ‘I am.’”   I waited.

God 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.”
