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.”
