This has become one of my most well received youtube videos to date, so naturally, I had to share it here.
The power of now is real and should be taught to all fitness enthusiasts. The only way to break free of this is to learn to become present. To use your past solely for a learning experience and to dis identity from any thoughts and beliefs that don’t support you.
Don’t let your ego project happiness into the future because all we really are promised is right now. I really love your site and I´m also doing your Greek God Program but also the spiritual part of your site i really enjoy ! This is through becoming a powerful observer of your mind and it’s habitual thoughts. And the problem is that the ego doesn’t exist in this moment.
Since im doing meditations of Eckhart Tolle my feelings for the present and ” living in the moment” went to the top ! “You can’t apply yourself and at the same time resist it.” If you can’t accept yourself right now, you will never be able to achieve your goals. No matter how fast you fun, it will be there, right behind you. Just like the mind looks to the past to define you, it looks to the future for the promise of happiness and fulfilment. The ego is never satisfied with the present moment. Soon you will find yourself experiencing the same state of lack, the same state of incompleteness…
But here’s the thing, if you’re not happy now, if you’re not complete now, you never will be. This is a horrible way to live to constantly fall for the illusion. The entire journey is a chronic obsession to arrive, without any real value. When you are able to realize that nothing you can ever do, have or become, can make you a more complete person. Being complete now doesn’t mean you won’t be motivated to achieve your goals. What this means it that finally you can work towards your goals with much more ease, joy and lightness than before. Stop dwelling on the future, stop dwelling on the fantasy!
We often tell ourselves that we’ll be happy or complete when we have this or that. Always wanting the future and not wanting what you have. Attach your happiness, joy and fulfilment into the journey. When there is joy for what you’re doing, plus the added element of a vision you’re working towards – you create enthusiasm. What is the common denominator of pretty much all successful people? Since it means that you don’t appreciate what you have, you don’t appreciate this moment.
The reward isn’t the future outcome, it’s the adventure. They truly loved what they were doing, plus they had a vision. Hence why the film title, The Pursuit of Happiness, is completely paradoxical in nature.“Have you ever lived, done or felt anything in the future or will you ever?The answer is quite obvious, is it not.” Eckhart Tolle Stop waiting for the future. Stop wanting to be anywhere other than where you are now.This doesn’t mean to retire and stop applying yourself or taking action. If you’re working for hours late at night on your business, the mind might want to complain and even say “I can’t WAIT for this to be over with.” When you don’t WANT to be doing something, the quality of your work suffers big time.So when I say, ‘stop wanting to be anywhere other than where you are now’, it means to fully accept what you’re doing.This will allow the ease of life to flow through you.
