“Do I want the present moment to be my friend or enemy? The present moment is inseparable from life so you are really deciding what kind of relationship you want with life. Once you have decided you want the present moment to be your friend, it is up to you to make the first move. Become friendly, welcome it no matter in what disguise it comes and soon you will see the results. Life becomes friendly towards you; people become helpful, circumstances cooperative. One decision changes your entire reality. But that one decision you have to make again and again and again – until it becomes natural to live in such a way. The decision to make the present moment into your friend is the end of the ego.The ego can never be in alignment with the present moment, which is to say, aligned with life, since it’s very nature compels it to ignore, resist or devalue the now.Time is what the ego lives on.The stronger the ego, the more time takes over your life. Almost every thought you think is then concerned with past or future and your sense of self depends on your past for your identity and on the future for it’s fulfillment. Fear,anxiety, expectation, regret, guilt, anger are the dysfunctions of the time bound state of consciousness.” ~Eckhart Tolle
