Eckhart Tolle 's 'Power of Now'.
This moment is a gift. That's why they call it 'the present'.
Check it out...now:http://www.amazon.com/The-Power-Now-Spi ... 968&sr=1-1
Thank you so much for this Barefoot. I never realized that about gift and present!
I do try and live in the present, but sometimes I forget and live in the past. That brought tears to my eyes!!
There are no words to say how much this means to me. I am going to get it today along with my leopard skin seat covers!!!
The book is MUCH more important though; it's just that my seats are black leather and coming apart and I certainly feel the present when I sit on them in 110 degree heat outside the car! That was so sweet; it IS already in my queue. That event in Florida with that poor homeless guy made me so upset and then watching We Need To Talk About Kevin brough a lot of memories up and my son is getting out in little over a month and I started having really bad dreams. Thank you FOR THE PRESENT!!!!
I am up and walking the dog; I am not living in the past today! You are an oracle or a gift!!!
Love You, Joanna XOXOXO
Dear Barefoot, Thank you for the PRESENT, THE NOW, etc!!! I haven't finished it and it took me a few months to start it, but I am finding it amazing. I am going to finish it and then start it immediately over again and THIS time I am going to highlight EVERYTHING that really speaks to me. I should have done that the first time, but I didn't think about it until about 30 pages in. I have dog eared pages all over the place. It is making a lot of sense to me. OK, it is just two days that I have been reading it and I let my mind take over for a while today, but NOW, I am PRESENT!! It is really a great book and I know I am going to have to read it many times and keep it in sight and probably buy a few copies, but something has to change. You have no idea how much this book has already done for me BUT I HAVE TO KEEP AT IT CONSTANTLY. So much better than all those therapists, etc. I haven't been to a all that many therapists really and that is because I really only ever found one GOOD one and then she stopped accepting my insurance plan. I had a great psychiatrist from Pakistan who was my therapist also and I believe he followed the basic concepts of The Power of Now which really are quite simple. I really can't say thank you enough for caring! I should have read it earllier and I have been kind of embarrassed around you because I hadn't, but better late than never!
Love, Joanna XOXOX
Don't thank me. Thank the now. You've got it. It's yours. It helps if someone else you know is into it, gets it and you can talk about it. Such a simple concept that our mind does not automatically go to. Reading again is good and you can just open it up and start anywhere.
Glad it helps. Really basic if you allow it to be. Have fun!
