Why Eckhart Tolle - The Power of Now?
When was the last time you stopped to stare at something beautiful like leaves blowing in the wind? Or stopped to really FEEL something ordinary but amazing, like grass under your bare feet?
Western society is designed, so life passes you by as if you’re a spectator; a permanent cycle of work, apps, chores, commuting, advertising, relationships and hurty shoes. We only truly relax when we have a glass of red in our hands. But that’s not the way the universe intended it - we are not spectators, we are alive!
We’re not meant to live in the past, regretting our actions, and we’re not meant to live in the future, worrying about what might happen. In the words of Jesus Jones and Fat Boy Slim, we are meant to live Right Here, Right Now.
How Do We Live in the Now?
Enter Mr. Eckhart Tolle, an unlikely little thing, originally from Germany, who, nearly 40 years ago, underwent satori. This sudden inner enlightenment helped him understand that living in the now was the only way to replace his depression and anxiety with peace and bliss.
He’s appeared many times on Oprah and his books and talks have helped millions “realise deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.”
Eckhart has become one of the world’s wisest gurus, and Life of Riley are proud to invite you to his teachings. This lecture atTeatro Coliseo begins at 8pm sharp - don’t be late because that wouldn’t be living in the now!
