Be in the now

A friend of mine recommended I read a book called “The Power of Now.” Here is the book description:

“To make the journey into The Power of Now you need to leave your analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. Access to the Now is everywhere - in the body, the silence, and the space all around you. These are the keys to enter a state of inner peace. They can be used to bring you into the Now, the present moment, where problems do not exist. It is here you find your joy and are able to embrace your true self. It is here you discover that you are already complete and perfect. 

Although the journey is challenging, Eckhart Tolle offers simple language in a question and answer format. The words themselves are the signposts to guide you on your journey. There are new discoveries to be made along the way: you are not your mind, you can find your way out of psychological pain, authentic human power is found by surrendering to the Now. When you become fully present and accepting of what is, you open yourself to the transforming experience of The Power of Now.”

Honestly, this couldn’t be more true, and what I needed to hear. A lot of times I get so caught up in “what happened” or “what’s next” that I forget to be in the moment. I miss what is happening now. I’m sure a lot of us do this. It’s something I’ve been working on, but now I want to get better. I want to take the pressure off and just enjoy my life now.
