The Power of NOW

I have recently begun listening to the audiopresentation of “The Power of Now”, a book by Ekhart Tolle.

It’s all about living in the NOW and how that benefits your experience of daily life.

It’s a wonderful book, but to be honest I already live in the NOW so to me it was just a bit of light reading. However, it explains how it works, not only how to do it. It explains that you (as a human being – that is a human BE-ing -) exist out of these 3 parts:
Body, Mind and Spirit. I know you knew this, bear with me. These three are a bit like an atom: a neutral core (Body) which also includes positive elements (Spirit), and is encircled by negative elements (Mind).

First of all, don’t judge “negative”. It’s necessary in order for “positive” to exist.

That said, the Mind is usually what keeps us from living in the NOW. It wants logic, it wants rationality, when ultimately neither exist in the absolute. Again, don’t judge your mind, you need it in order to experience the illusion (“reality”). Once you’ve experienced enough of this “reality”, you will probably realise what the NOW is, and you’ll want to experience thàt instead.

So you try to shut off your mind. This isn’t easy, as it will fight back.

Wanna know how? Stay tuned, I’m going to explain it in my own words in my next entry.

Blessed be.
