Tikey, hoping for a future different from this moment only distracts you from the freedom you seek. Consider the sensation of hope. Does it not also contain a feeling of resistance to how things presently are? Is there not a belief that the conditions of this moment are somehow flawed and "should" be different? The very nature of enlightenment is to be free of hope; because in clear awareness, there is recognition that life as it is has an underlying beauty and perfection. And it is one's condemnation of how things are that prevents one from realizing the Essential Truth of Being.tikey wrote: Man sometimes I just would like to be a calm frequency holder rather than crazy myself... but I hope soon I will come "home" and stay there, cause the "outward movement" is just a pain, pain, pain and it's senseless. It's only sense is
to realise that's it's sensless and pinfull and so to come home.......... do you "frequency holders" can help in "comming home"???
Our path to "enlightenment" lies not in some future of hope and possibility. Our "path" stands directly before us, closer than breath. Enlightenment is fundamental to who we are. There is no where to go to get it. Essentially enlightenment it is clear seeing in this now moment. It is the recognition that this eternal moment is life. Looking to other moments and other possibilities is not the answer, it is the problem. Tolle wrote no book titled "The Power of Hope". He wrote "The Power of Now". Now frees us from the allure of hope based on our condemnation and resistance to now.
All of Tolle's pointers, if followed, lead to this present moment awareness and are designed to free us from the concepts of time and separate identity (ego). It is the ego/mind that seeks and hopes for future salvation.
Be here, and be clear.
