A simple technique for a peaceful life.

We all have those days where we can’t silence the mind.  It just races with thoughts, things to do, and worries.  As your mind races you feel anxious and uneasy.

The other night this happened to me, and I was having a tough time escaping the noise.  I needed help getting centered.  So I turned on You Tube and watched Eckhart Tolle TV.

Eckhart Tolle has a smoothing voice, within minutes I was feeling better.  Eckhart’s solution to quieting the mind was to be in the present.  He spoke about the ego, “I am this”, “I have this”, “I need that”, and so on.  The ego attaches itself to wealth, possessions, roles, but the ego can not live in the present.  

As I am listening to Eckhart I start paying attention to the present.  I feel my body getting calmer, every breath I take my heart slows and my mind settles.  In the present you are not worried about what happened in the past or what the future holds.  You are living in the now.

I have been practicing this method for two weeks and am amazed by the results.  I have a feeling of power and peace.  I am at ease.
