First, I’ll give you a couple of updates on my “life situation” as Tolle would refer to it. I’ll be starting a full time job as editorial assistant at Weddingbells magazine in June, and I couldn’t be more thrilled! I’ll also be graduating from Ryerson in June, and visiting Ireland. AND in May, I’ll be doing a jam-packed Europe trip with my boyfriend, Geoff. I’m also in the midst of completing my 200-hour yoga teacher training program at Downward Dog, and I just signed up to become a certified Fairyologist with Doreen Virtue! Okay, so maybe I am pretty busy. Either way, I’m sorry I haven’t been up to snuff with my blogging duties!
Anyway, that was a total digression into “psychological time,” meaning the past and the future, which don’t really exist anyway, according to Tolle. As many people have said before about the Power of Now, the book is profound and enlightening in so many ways. Every truth he writes about hits home in a way conventional knowledge/information can’t, because he’s addressing the reader’s soul, not their mind. Even if you think you don’t understand something, your inner being recognizes it as the ultimate truth.
I wish this book was required reading for everyone, because it really is life-changing in so many ways. It’s easy to get caught up in psychological time and forget that the only moment we ever really have is right now. It’s insanity to waste it!
I won’t list all the reasons why this book is so important — you’ll just have to read it to find out for yourself! Today, just for a few minutes, try to access the power of Now. Breathe, look around, observe without judgment and just BE. Your soul will thank you.
