Spontaneous: 10 Ways To Be In The Moment

be in the moment

The Power Of Now was an international sensation when it was first released, and Ekhart Tolles teachings and revelations impacted millions of people around the world. His book focuses on how to be in the moment and not distracting ourselves with unnecessary thoughts and concerns.

Below are a collection of 10 simple and beautiful statements from The Power Of Now to help you be in the moment.

1. “Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.”

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

The habit of constantly thinking about future events means that when those moments finally arrive, you are distracted by thinking of yet another future moment. You never appreciate the NOW for what it is and this moment is ALL there is.

2. “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

Rushing around and worrying about time passing means you never appreciate any of it. Focusing on each moment means you savor what is, instead of worrying about what might be.

be in the moment3. “Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time. If it is a mistake, at least you learn something, in which case it’s no longer a mistake. If you remain stuck, you learn nothing.”

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

To always be in the process of learning and experience is what makes us feel alive. Always keep moving forward and never remain stagnant.

4. “If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place. Primary reality is within; secondary reality without.”

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

By taking care of your internal struggles and issues, only then will you be able to project love and compassion externally.

5. “…the past gives you an identity and the future holds the promise of salvation, of fulfillment in whatever form. Both are illusions.”

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

Your past experiences give you an identity with which you relate to. You then continue the rest of your time holding on to those characteristics and attributes instead of being open to every moment.

live-in-the-moment6. “As soon as you honor the present moment, all unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out the present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love – even the most simple action.”

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

When you remove intention in your actions, whatever you do is pure. Intent means a result is desired and if you don’t get that result, you will be dissappointed. By being in the moment, you face no resistance or struggle.

7. “It is not uncommon for people to spend their whole life waiting to start living.”

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

By waiting for the perfect conditions to align, before you take action, you are wasting yourself and your opportunity. Let go of expectation and act in the moment.

8. “Reading is my passion and my escape since I was 5 years old. Overall, children don’t realize the magic that can live inside their own heads. Better even then any movie.”be in the moment

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

Reading has many benefits, and focusing the mind is just one.

9. “Nothing has happened in the past; it happened in the Now. Nothing will ever happen in the future; it will happen in the Now.”

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

The present moment is all there is, and all things happen in the now.

10. “If your mind carries a heavy burden of past, you will experience more of the same. The past perpetuates itself through lack of presence. The quality of your consciousness at this moment is what shapes the future.”

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

Holding on to past hurts will recreate the same issues for you over and over again until you learn to let go and be in the moment.
