I can not believe we are already in October and fall 2023 is officially here! Wow! So much had transpired in this one year for sure. Today as I was re-reading Eckhart Tolle’s “The Power Of Now”, one of the most profound paragraphs gave me the biggest smile remembering the first awakened moment i had in my life, at the tender age of 12. We all have asked ourselves the why’s of the world. Whatever your why’s are or were know that you are truly enough!!! Throughout life many curve balls are thrown yet it’s up to us to always know who and whose we are! Chapter 1 of the book starts off with a beggar and a stranger who had nothing to give. Yet he asked the beggar had he looked within the box he was sitting on. So many times in our own lives we choose not to look within ourselves, thinking that whatever we need is outside of ourselves. This paragraph truly has a way of changing the way one thinks and feels about him/herself. I pray it speaks to you as it has once again spoken volumes to me.
The Power Of Now!
“Those who have not found their true wealth, which is the radiant joy of Being and the deep, unshakable peace that comes with it, are beggars, even if they have great material wealth. They are looking outside for the scraps of pleasure or fulfillment, for validation, security, or love, while they have a treasure within that not only includes all those things but infinitely greater than anything the world could offer.”
Namaste! And So It Is!
