Understanding the Power of Now

February 19, 2007

“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

Q&A with management guru Jim Collins

The bestselling author answers our readers’ questions about business, leadership – and mountain climbing.

Lets read this nice interview  by Matthew Boyle at CNNMoney.com.

Sharing some insight :

If you were to offer advice to a beginning entrepreneur, what would it be? –Francisco Romero, Albuquerque

First, don’t obsess on finding the “great idea.” In fact, our research shows a somewhat negative correlation between pioneering a great idea and building a great company. Many of the greatest started with either no great idea or even failed ideas.

Sony (Charts) started with a failed rice cooker. Marriott (Charts) started as a single root beer stand. Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard’s great idea was simply to work together – two best friends who trusted each other – while their first four products failed to get the company out of the garage.

They followed the “first who” approach to entrepreneurship: First figure out your partners, then figure out what ideas to pursue. The most important thing isn’t the market you target, the product you develop or the financing, but the founding team.

Starting a company is like scaling an unclimbed face – you don’t know what the mountain will throw at you, so you must pick the right partners, who share your values, on whom you can depend, and who can adapt.
