'My Name is I Am'

I ran across this quote today as I was reading and just thought I would share it.

"I was regretting the past and fearing the future. Suddenly God was speaking: "My name is I am." I waited and 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."

This is what they gave me when I had my nervous break down ten years ago. It has been one thing that has held me and helped me through the years. Thanks for reminding me of it!
