So much for presence being a magical solution for all that ails us! ;-)

Well, his presence may not be of any benefit to the rest of us... but hey, he seems content enough.

Oh, and while we’re on the subject… that New Earth thing doesn’t look like it’s about to happen anytime soon. :D

That's actually a good and important point.

Being able to focus one's attention/energy on the present moment can bring real power to one's thoughts and actions. And power can be used for good/creative and bad/destructive ends. Traditions like Advaita and Buddhism are very strong on ethics/morals, it's built right into the path from the get-go. Without that foundation of compassion and kindness, the power of present-moment awareness can be weaponized.

I think of it (loosely!) as white and black magic. And the skills that CEOs are learning from mindfulness can slide into black magic, I think. (I just got this nasty image of The New Soldier, trained in the art of combat mindfulness. Oy!)

The wizards of wall-street develop their psychic powers ...but these become self limiting due to the law of cause and effect, the most fundamental law of existence :D

Things will get worse before they get better ...Eckhart Tolle said that the new earth will not be a utopia...

What Mystic said applies here.
