You might want to listen to this wonderful, new Sentinel Radio Chat "Victor, not victim" with Timothy MacDonald. My wife and I listened to it at different times yesterday and we both were struck by his closing lines about focusing on God as 'I am.'
God is Love and God is 'I am.' God is not 'I was' or 'I will be.' We are in the present of divine Love. Love is the fount of our being and our joy. Love is the basis of this very moment. Life is saying right now, "I am Love."
