Thoughts on The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle

Too much thinking on the Past and I become sad and regretful. Too much thinking on the Future that may come and I become anxious and unfulfilled over not reaching that potential. In both cases, I become identified with my Mind/ my Ego which is linked to and relates to Time. To live in the Now, to live in the Present, is to silence the Mind/ the Ego, is to Be in the moment which is happiness. – from the book, The Power of Now

PS – too much thinking in the Now would mean I become reactive, not proactive which means I don’t work towards my Goals (my overarching goals coming from my identity) and Life becomes meaningless. So I must think mostly in the Now while taking lessons from the Past and using the Future-thinking briefly to guide my progress in the Now to achieve my Goals.

 

I include in this blog post the Amazon link to further browse and purchase the book, ‘The Power of Now’ by Eckhart Tolle if you liked reading my summary. I highly recommend it.
