The Power of the Present Moment

Eckhart Tolle gives an entertaining and engaging talk on what it means to live in the present moment.

 

In this talk, he explains why he does not use the word ‘mindfulness’ but prefers to use ‘presence’.  I also love his statement that ‘It’s always the present moment’ and that ‘Your entire life is lived in the present moment’ although we do not think this way.

He is very insightful when he describes the present as the ‘vertical dimension’ but that we live most of our life in the ‘horizontal dimensions’ of the past and the future.
