My Name is "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."
