We would like to share this reflection with you in the hope that it inspires you in some way.

 

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
