Day 17 : A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.
Oh hands down, Eckhart Tolle. I first read The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment it was quite an amazing experience. I already was heading down a better path in life, but his words gave me the reassurance that these thoughts I was feeling were not just thoughts, but reality.
Even tonight as I think of circumstances out of my control and try to find new ways to release the worry and find trust in myself. I am only one soul, one person doing my best. As long as I can look at myself in the mirror and know I am doing more than my best, that I am doing all that I can to take care of my family and to be sure their needs are well met, then I know, in the end, all will be well.
One quote in particular resonates in my mind always
“The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but thought about it. Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking. Separate them from the situation, which is always neutral. It is as it is.”
By understanding a situation and separating my thoughts from the situation I find peace, and create the happiness with in. If you give power to that which you cannot control, then misery may take over, but by stepping out of darkness and into the light, joy and peace thrive.
|From inside the maze it might be hard to see the path, |
but it can be easy to get through!
So this book, and author changed my perspective on happiness. It isn't a destination, but rather the journey. My journey is one of love and light, I hope you, too can find the power of now and join in on this wonderful journey!
