The Power of Now

Posted by Nitin (Shanghai, China) on 15 May 2016 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

“Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time—past and future—the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is.”

Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

After months of battle the war seems to have eased. Wounded, although not mortally, the mind and the body are in state of stress. While you pull yourself up to heal from these wounds you are already aware that there is another battle looming round the corner. This one several times more challenging than the previous one. In this one the primary war is against yourself where in the previous case it was against the opposition.

Fighting self is perhaps more difficult. How you are able to direct your future self will impact the lives of all those that are connected to you. However, the more important thing is you. What makes you happy? What makes you forgive yourself?

And it is about Now.
