PUT IT ASIDE: My thoughts may wander away from the present and create ghosts and goblins. Eckhart Tolle’s book NOW sets one in such a good now (pun intended) mind set. Whenever I find myself walking down the ‘why me‘ or the ‘if only‘ or the ‘did this or that mean this or that‘ thought path, I know I am lucky when I acknowledge that it has no bearings on NOW. That is like bringing me out of some depths to be present with my current surroundings. I call that the act of put it aside. Which is most often experienced as a relief or wake up.
