“Constant alertness is required to not let the ego take it over. The challenges that come into your lives – either the challenge drags you into old conditioned ego reactions or wakes you up more.”
“Everyday that you do – you use small steps. Not look to some future moment that promises some greater fulfillment – that is a delusion. The main focus must be in the doing.”
As a young individual, you can easily think about the future – a career, loving relationship and whatever else. It is easy to lose sight of the NOW.
Tolle says “To master any endeavor – you must be total in what you do.”
