I've been thinking about universal truths lately. This quote above would be in my top 3 list.
Eckhart Tolle is a spiritual teacher, yes he's very "woo woo", who focuses on separating thoughts from awareness. I am into his sea of thinking hook, line and sinker. I have been for years, long before he was Oprah popular. If you're interested, start with The Power of Now then move onto A New Earth.
This past year has been a year of change in my life, in Rich's life, in many of my friends' lives. As I'm dealing with stress and helping others deal with theirs, I need to remind myself of this quote. And that it is ok to just be HERE right now.
