Most people project the future worry of not making it on time or having to face an angry boss on the now, which does nothing good neither for them nor for the completion of their project.
If you tackle it instead in the now, you can focus on doing all the actions that need be to taken now free of future worries. The secret of life is dying before you die. And finding there's no death Click To Tweet. Eckart Tolle says that we experience pain when are unhappy about things we have little control on. And the present cannot always fully tackle future events and it can hardly rewrite the past as well albeit Tony Robbins shares a few technique to change your past memories.
As much as past and future are our own construct, so is pain. Death of loved ones, for example, will always be painful. Tolle says that you should accept unavoidable pain for what it is: And you will avoid needless suffering.
The idea of accepting the pain is also a concept in When Breath Becomes Air. After all, being present in the now is not strictly about avoiding, suppressing or ignoring all pain and negative feelings. But it provides with the strength to accept them. Accept it as if you chose it Click To Tweet. We equate our ego with the thoughts in our mind.
The problem with that is that our mind always projects into the future to secure its survival. This is why you cannot find the present moment as long as you are in your mind. For Tolle indeed the enlightenment is to stop the incessant thinking our mind is always engage into. He made the typical mistake of equating thinking with being and identity with thinking. You are here to enable the divine purpose of the universe to unfold Click To Tweet.
Tolle proposes several different ways to do that:. When you fully focus on that question your mind will stop its background humming for a while and you will create a gap in the flow of thinking.
Judging is an act of your mind, so when you allow your mind to judge its own thought you are allowing it free reins.
So for example if in the middle of something you feel like taking a break outside, follow that impulse instead of deeming it unrealistic. Just acknowledge it exists.
A great to focus on the now is putting yourself in a state where you are awaiting for something important to happen. When you in a state of tense awaiting all your body and mind is fully alert without any spare resources for worrying about the past and future.
Active waiting can also be a tool you can use to enter a state of flow, for example before an exam or before a race for more on flow read: Grit , The Talent Code and Relentless. This is why, Tolle says, Jesus answered to the disciples who asked him how to live a good and peaceful life:. The second coming of Jesus is in your enlightenment Click To Tweet.
Living in the now can be of great help for your relationship.
It allows you to listen without an ego and without judging. And you will have no need to possess and restrict your partner. However, it can also make your relationship difficult when only one partner lives in the now. Eckhart Tolle says that light and darkness cannot coexist. The non enlightened partner will always try to bring you back to the pains of the past or the worries of the future.
Only light can recognize light Click To Tweet. The author says that any addiction starts with pain and ends with pain. Being addicted to one person is like being addicted to any other substance.
You'll only have love relationships when you give up the relationship with yourself Click To Tweet. The author says that many spiritual got it wrong in trying to transcend from the body. But trying to repress the body is not the way to enlightenment. Buddha only find it when he stopped his 6 years abstinence.
Jesus always embraced the body: Through the inner body you are forever one with God Click To Tweet. And when you reach a certain stage of interconnectedness you will recognize the truth when you hear it.
