The Power of the Present Moment
It’s important to learn about awakening out of the egoic brain and living in the here and now. This book is intended to assist you to do just that.
The chapters are reminders that may be read in any order. We all need reminders to be more present in our lives to our true experience and brush aside what is damaging and takes away from real happiness, which is the chattering of the egoic mind.
The facet of mind that I’m calling the egoic mind is what we consider as our own thoughts.
These are principally thoughts about ourselves and other people: notions, opinions, and additional conditioned ideas as well as wants, memories, illusions, hopes, dreads, and ambitions.
They appear to belong to us, but they, in reality, belong to the false self, or ego, and don’t bring anything to our lives, although they make for the dramatic events that this character that we understand ourselves as experiences.
Once you understand how the mind can affect your reality due to the negative thoughts that are constantly moving through it, you will learn to live in the present. You will understand the power of the present moment.
