August Conversation 2021
August 18, 2021
16 Queensport Road South, Murarrie
Our next conversation will focus on the power of presence, taking some insights from the Power of Now by Eckart Tolle.
Every minute you spend worrying about the future or regretting the past is a minute lost, because really all you have to live in is the present, the now, the past is gone and it can’t be changed, the future is unknown. How can we live more effectively in the present? What is the benefit of living every minute as it occurs?
Eckhart tells that the greatest obstacle to experiencing reality is the identification with the mind, believing that you are your thoughts. It creates concepts, labels, images, words, judgements and definitions which block your relationship with the now. The mind is a superb instrument if used correctly, if one can be the observer and that a step back.
If the egoic mind dominates – the mind uses you. And again, even worse, if you are unaware and the mind is using you and you don’t even know it, you become it’s slave.
How do we get freedom around our thoughts and become more peaceful in our everyday lives, both in our workplaces and in our personal lives? And what impact would that have?
Come and join the conversation, experience some gentle mediations, and spend some time looking at things differently.
