Understanding the Power of Now

“Mind agitated, wavering, hard to guard and hard to check, one of wisdom renders straight as arrow-maker a shaft”. – Buddha

When we think about a beautiful word: “thoughts”.

What is our  first image? 

Why this particular image is coming in the mind?

….Observe yourself!

 Are we living on center or periphery of the circle of life?

Just remind timeless wisdom from Bhagvat Gita:

“The uncontrolled mind does not guess that the Atman (soul) is present: How can it mediate? Without meditation, where is peace without peace, where is happiness? ”

Here the meaning of control is moving towards center. Moving towards consciousness. Moving towards roots. Moving towards true nature of self. Moving towards solution.

Now come to TIME: In which dimension of time, we are living (Plus – Zero – Minus)

After observing we can diagnosis: Are we able to maintain resonance with time?

The solution is walking with time. Move our thought at present dimension of time. Because it is easy and simple.

In simple: Understanding the Power of Now………….

Kindly read this wonderful interview of Eckhart Tolle at store.sound.com

Interview: The Power of Now and the End of Suffering

Some points from this interview:

“The word Buddha comes from the Sanskrit word Budh, meaning, “to be awake.” So Buddha is not a name and ultimately not a person, but a state of consciousness. All this implies that humans are potentially capable of living in a state of consciousness compared to which normal wakefulness is like sleeping or dreaming”.

“At the time, I had no conceptual framework to help me understand what had happened to me. Years later, I realized that the acute suffering I felt that night must have forced my consciousness to withdraw from identification with the unhappy self, the suffering “little me,” which is ultimately a fiction of the mind. This withdrawal must have been so complete that the suffering self collapsed as if the plug had been pulled out of an inflatable toy. What was left was my true nature as the ever present “I AM”: consciousness in its pure state prior to identification with form. You may also call it pure awareness or presence”.

“What dissolves is identification with thought forms that had given you your sense of self. But that sense of self is ultimately false is ultimately a mental fiction. It is the egoic mind or the “little me” as I sometimes call it. To be identified with a mental image of who you are is to be unconscious, to be unawakened spiritually. This unawakened state creates suffering, but suffering creates the possibility of awakening”.

********************************************

Knowledge and ignorance are the two unborn ones. One is the ruler and the other, the ruled. Apart from these two, there is another who is also unborn and who is connected with the enjoyer and his enjoyment. And then there is the infinite self, the universal form, who is non-doer. When one knows this triad, one has known Brahman (cosmic consciousness).”- Upanishad

    21 Effective Quotations of Swami Vivekananda

    1. If the mind is intensely eager, everything can be accomplished— mountains can be crumbled into atoms.

    2. Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.

    3. Come out into the universe of Light. Everything in the universe is yours, stretch out your arms and embrace it with love. If you every felt you wanted to do that, you have felt God.

    4. All knowledge that the world has ever received comes from the mind; the infinite library of the universe is in our own mind.

    5. Stand up, be bold, be strong. Take the whole responsibility on your own shoulders, and know that you are the creator of your own destiny. All the strength and succor you want is within yourself. Therefore make your own future.
