They say there is only now. The past, the future, it is all an illusion created by our mind. Our mind keeps dwelling on the mistakes of the past and worrying about POSSIBLE problems in the future. In Eckhart Tolles book The Power of Now he tells us to try and stay centered in the now. The more centered in the now we become the higher we vibrate and the harder it becomes for negative circumstances to enter.
He tells us to stay in the now. To ask ourselves what we really need at this moment. Not a day from now. Not an hour from now. Not even a few minutes from now. And I have to admit even with all my future worries, every time I ask that question, I really don't need anything.
So why do I keep worrying. Troublesome thoughts entered my mind a few days ago. But then I asked myself what do I really need now. And I must be honest and say nothing. Troublesome thoughts entered my mind yesterday. But I again asked myself what do I need now. Again I needed nothing. Troublesome thoughts entered my mind today. But again I need nothing. Just a few minutes ago the troublesome thoughts arise again. But I concentrate on the now and ask myself what do I really need at this moment. Again the answer is NOTHING! So will there every come a time when the answer will not be nothing.
And it makes you wonder if we live in a constant now with no past or present. Then everything we could ever need has to be with us right NOW. Not on its way because that would imply a time frame. Everything has to be here now. It has to be that we just don't see how to get it. Because it must be there. It has to be.
Isn't it amazing how so many of the things we need arrive at just the opportune moment. Almost like magic or a miracle. But it can't be a miracle if it is already there. It just must be something in us has let us see what we need.
It's like we endure an unnecessary struggle. Fighting because we believe in scarcity. When right in front of our eyes is a huge pot of gold. Perhpas it is because we just have to come to a point where we say, "Enough is, Enough! I'm sick of it and I'm not going to play this pointless, useless, unnecessary game anymore." And when the game ends the world is ours!
