Tolle makes the case that lots of our suffering and pain happen because we allow the past and the future to poison our present. Which makes no sense to Tolle, because past and future don’t even exist.
The past cannot survive in your presence: it can only survive in your absence
Things only happen in a continuous stream of present moments. When you feel something about the past you are feeling it now. So it’s not true that you are feeling some pain from the past: you are experiencing it in the success of present, “now moments”.
What we call the past is nothing but a collection of once-present moments. And the future is made of present moments that have yet to materialize.
For example, you might have a huge project you are running behind schedule. Most people project the future worry of not making it on time or having to face an angry boss on the now, which does nothing good neither for them nor for the completion of their project.
If you tackle it instead in the now, you can focus on doing all the actions that need be to taken now, free of future worries.
The secret of life is dying before you die. And finding there’s no death.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
