The world is full of abundance and opportunity, but far too many people come to the fountain of life with a sieve instead of a tank car... a teaspoon instead of a steam shovel. They expect little and as a result they get little - Ben Sweetland

The Power of Now

It's been a long time since I read Eckhardt Tolle's book, The Power of Now. I've read it several time since I fist found it and I always love reading it again. Tolle's message is very simple and it's a message that's repeated again and again in the work of those who write about the law of attraction. He is saying that 'the now' is all that exists and so we should fully embrace it, immerse ourselves in it and accept it totally.

Like so many things, there seems to be a paradox here: how can we be satisfied with the here and now and also be driven to change the future?

One of the foundations of the LOA is that you need to feel something before it will manifest. Hence, the importance of feeling good here and now cannot be overstated. In Ask and it is Given, Abraham Hicks says ' when you understand the power of feeling good now, no matter what, you ill hold the key to the achievement of ... anything you desire.' The future never gets finished - there is always more to experience, more to have, more to choose. We need to accept, embrace and feel wonderful about our present reality and choose the future we desire, releasing our intenti0ns to the universe and then letting things take thier course, detached from the outcome, knowing that all is well.
