What I love about Eckhart Tolle, is that he really makes you want to stay in the present. It makes me more aware of my emotions and feelings. I have noticed that whenever I focus less on the past and future, I am more at peace with myself. I am more relaxed, as well.
“Always say ‘yes’ to the present moment. Say ‘yes’ to life – and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.”-Eckhart Tolle
Focusing on the present moment instead of allowing yourself to be dragged down by your past, or allowing yourself feel anxious about the future, is beneficial to a happy life. You allow yourself to be more relaxed and calm. Being calm will help you make wiser and better decisions. This is how you make your life work for you.
