A Push in the Right Direction
Posted: Wed Dec 08, 2004 5:00 pm
I've known and experienced what Eckhart Tolle talks about for a long time before I listened to The Power of Now, but I feel like Tolle gave me a push in the direction of actually practicing more and living freely. After I listened to it, I began to be aware of my thoughts as not being me throughout the entire day instead of just on occasions. It's like I put on new glasses to see the world through and actually kept them on. Whenever I start having these bad feelings, I can actually look at them and examine them instead of being them. Most of all, I realized that I should stop waiting to become enlightened and actually be free of the world now. I've always known how to be at peace with myself, but I've always said that I would get better later. I think Tolle helped me to start getting better now.
