Where is God?


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
and 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 fears and problems
it is hard.
I am not there.
My name is not I WILL BE.

When you live in the moment
It is not as hard.
I am here.
My name is I AM.
