A spiritual writer commenting on God's revelation to Moses as the great I Am, when asked for His name, made the observation that when we live in the past with mistakes and regrets it is hard because Gods name is not, I Was. Similarly when we live in the future with problems and fears, it is also a difficult place because Gods name is not, I Will Be. Only as we live in the present will we find that life is not hard, because God's name is I Am. Here is a simple but profound truth that if we want to live in Gods presence, it is imperative that we live not in the past or in the future but fully in the NOW. The two words present and presence are so interlinked as to be inseparable and suggest that it is only by living in the present that we can enjoy the reality of Gods presence. NOW is truly, the sacrament of the present moment.
