For those who have known me for a while, you will know that I am a big fan of Eckhart Tolle. I’d like to expand on one of the many quotes from his book ‘A New Earth’ that I like:
“What the world doesn’t tell you because it doesn’t know – is that you cannot become successful. You can only be successful. Don’t let a mad world tell you that success is anything other than a successful present moment.”
One of the purposes of my CDs, classes, workshops and therapy sessions, is to give you more being time, or present moment time. More moments where you can reacquaint yourself again with who you really are. Moments of stillness, peace and freedom. Along the way to this real authentic you, what of course happens (if you access yourself mindfully) is that all the holdings, stresses, pains, traumas and unfinished business from the past begin to surface. Allowing this material to move and release is a big part of the work.
As it moves and shifts and lets go, you begin to be more. You begin to live more in the present moment. This then naturally leads to more successful present moments. And the accumulation of successful present moments show up over time as ‘success’ in your life for whatever goal you are pursuing.
So if you can be successful in this moment now, and repeat this continually, you achieve the goal you want. So what you are thinking and feeling in your body right now this moment as you read this, is the most crucial component and determinant for what your success will look like in future. Ignore what your body is asking of you and requiring of you now, and you effect your success and health in future.
So this moment now as you read this, is very powerful indeed. To your ego/intellect it seems so mundane, boring and insignificant. This moment now? (it might be saying), this doesn’t seem important at all. It’s just a boring simple moment.
Bring your consciousness into it, make what you do in this moment count, make it a quality purposeful moment. Listen to what your body needs right now and do it. Repeat this seemingly boring process continually and you are guaranteed of success in future.
