Give your attention to your body. - Deepstash
Give your attention to your body.

Give your attention to your body.

If you keep your attention in the body as much as possible, you will be anchored in the Now. You won't lose yourself in the external world, and you won't lose yourself in your mind. Thoughts and emotions, fears and desires may still be there to some extent, but they won't take you over.

The Power of Now

by Eckhart Tolle

MORE IDEAS FROM THEBOOK

Consciousness - The Way Out of Pain
  • The pain that you create now is always some form of nonacceptance, some form of unconscious resistance to what is. 
  • On the level of thought, the resistance is some form of judgment
  • On the emotional level, it is some form of negativity
  • The intensity of the pain depends on the degree of resistance to the present moment, and this in turn depends on how strongly you are identified with your mind. 
  • The mind always seeks to deny the Now and to escape from it.

What is important for the Ego?

Identification with your mind causes thought to become compulsive.

To the ego, the present moment hardly exists. Only past and future are considered important.

Pro tip 1: Train your Brain

Try observing your thought patterns.

You'll notice that maximum percentage of your thoughts are about the past or the future.

How many of us have had our breakfast being completely engrossed in the moment and enjoyed the taste of our food? So train your brain on observing and focussing in the present activity that you are doing:

Example:

The breakfast tastes so good.

The sky is so blue.

My body feels so healthy and active.

You are not your mind
  1. Your mind is an instrument, a tool. 
  2. It is there to be used for a specific task, and when the task is completed, you lay it down. 
  3. As it is, I would say about 80 to 90 percent of most people's thinking is not only repetitive and useless, but because of its dysfunctional and often negative nature, much of it is also harmful. 
  4. Observe your mind and you will find this to be true. 
  5. It causes a serious leakage of vital energy.

Pro tip 2: Practice gratitude

Another easier activity is practicing gratitude.

Maintain a journal and write down the points for which you are grateful for in the present moment whenever your mind wanders off.

Remember practice is the key!

The more you are able to honor and accept the Now, the more you are free of pain, of suffering -- and free of the egoic mind.

The Now is New.

Four principles of Eckhart Tolle.

  • We are not the voice in our head but the observer.
  • Like the nature, stay in the present. Past and future does not exist.
  • Realization of unconsciousness is true forgiveness and that is our true Presence.
  • Don't fight the ego. The moment you become conscious, the ego dissolves.

The only moment that will ever happen to you is now. There is no future yet and past days are history. They won't come back. You are only in this moment so enjoy every second and take what's the best from it. You need to focus as well as you can at it and live like that's the most beautiful experience in your life.
