To practice The Power of Now, you have to be willing to first admit that your mind is running on auto-pilot, often obsessing about the future or ruminating on the past. Once you take a few moments and observe this pattern, you start to become more present. You start to see that you are not your thoughts. From here, you can begin to rest in a stillness that is ever-present in each now moment. From here, peace arises easily.
The focus of your attention on your deeper self, that which is not tied to time (future or past) awakens higher consciousness. You’re no longer a prisoner of social status, or what is or isn’t happening in your life. You surrender over and over again to what is.
