Great section from A New Earth on the Ego & The Present moment
I've made tons of notes from A New Earth! Here's a section that I think rocks. It sums up so much of life and does so eloquently.
People that move through life with absolute ease tend to spend most of their time anchored into the present moment. Those that struggle tend to view the present moment through their ego in one of three ways.
I'm sure you can find an example of each from your friends, peers and family. And it will also expose how you are creating your own conflict in life. External reality is always a reflection of you internal state.
TOLLE from A NEW EARTH
"Make the present moment your friend by accepting it completely. Because the present moment is inseparable with life, if you resist the present you are resisting life. And it will treat you how you treat it. You must be one with the present moment.
Or you can bring the ego into the present moment with you ;) :
