Recognizing The Illusion

makes me happy.



I'm reading The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle again (third time) and thought I would share a quote with you today.

Here Tolle is explaining how all problems are illusions of the mind...

"Ultimately, this is not about solving your problems. It's about realizing that there are no problems. Only situations - to be dealt with now, or to be left alone and accepted as part of the "isness" of the present moment until they change or can be dealt with. Problems are mind-made and need time to survive. They cannot survive in the actuality of the Now.

Focus your attention on the Now and tell me what problems you have at this moment."

None.

None. Is always the answer.

ET is amazing. Along with the book, I have the audio files on my ipod and play them in the car when LA traffic starts to make me flip out!
