See, hear, taste, smell, touch now

Live your own life

That is to say, where you are, as you are, with what you are, and with who you are…

Accept the situation in which you find yourself and try, at the same time to adapt to it.

You cannot escape from it

Svami Prajnanpad

For those of you that still have not read it, Eckhart Tolle’s the Power Now offers a refreshing perspective on contemporary spirituality. No matter from which walk of life you come from, it is the ultimate guide for living life to the fullest and generating happiness from your daily routine!

Such awareness is like living with a snake in the room;

You watch its every movement, you are very, very sensitive to the slightest sound it makes

Such a state of attention is total energy;

In such awareness the totality of yourself is revealed at an instant.

Krishnamurti

 

            Differentiate between being and doing. What we do does not define who we are. If we let the material world (possessions, accomplishments, social entourage) define us, we will spend a life-time comparing ourselves with others rather than focusing on living the present moment.

Be the master of your mind not its slave. Focus on your breathing to stop compulsive thinking. Doing so allows you to observe and reflect upon your thought processes, discard harmful thoughts and allow you to welcome the positive energy of the present.
