One day, Moses asked God what God’s name was. God said, “I Am”.
God never said “I Was” or “I Will be”.
When I lived in the past, which doesn’t actually exist, I lived a life of stress because I kept reliving in the story of abuse. It kept me pinned down. It manifested itself through me as lack of confidence, fear, anger, guilt, loneliness, isolation, self-sabotaging. Even though, on the surface, I was a go-getter, a doer, a people helper, a fun person, living in my abused childhood past absolutely kept me pinned down. I was living the “I Was” experience.
As I lived in the future, which also doesn’t exist, I was seen as a positive visionary always seeing great things for myself and others. In my mind I was successful, on top of the world. However, I came into the awareness that the main reason I kept looking into the future was because I hated who I was in the present. I kept projecting a better future version of me. I was living the “I Will Be” experience.
Both of these kept me pinned down in a life of stress, fear and anxiety.
I have come to know that all you ever have is the present moment. When I learned to accept and live in this present moment I discovered the key that unlocked the inner peace, inner joy, and inner strength that already dwells in me, untapped.
In discovering the present moment I also discovered God as I had never discovered God before. My life has never been the same.
Don’t live in the past ‘I Was’. Don’t live in the future ‘I Will Be.”
Live and be in the present moment “I Am.”
