About not arguing with the present moment
Eckhart Tolle in the fashion of a typical hypnotist does repeat himself ad nauseam.
He obviously knows the most basic principle of the application of the hypnotic suggestions.
One of his repetitive hypnotic mantras is this:
Never argue with the present moment!
Never argue with the present moment because IT ALREADY IS - says over and over again the great Eckhart Tolle to all who would listen to his gospel of NOW.
Now, if you happened to sit on a pin - don’t argue with the situation of the present moment because the pin ALREADY IS embedded into the flesh of your ass.
Don’t argue with your disease, don’t argue with your poverty, don’t argue with a thief and a mugger because they all ALREADY ARE.
How does your inherent intelligence respond to the above statements?
Does it agree with the great Eckhart Tolle or begins to think that he is a dangerous idiot?
You see, it is ONLY through the quality of the unfailing persistence - and that means NON-ACCEPTANCE of what the present moment has to offer - that the greatest achievements of the humanity came into existence.
Consider the following quotation:
“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
Calvin Coolidge - 30th president of US (1872 - 1933)
Would you agree that the man who uttered these words would NEVER AGREE with the great Eckhart Tolle?
The above presented quotation is the epitome of NON-ACCEPTANCE of the conditions of the present moment!
And isn’t it true that it was ONLY when you ARGUED with whatever troubled you in your present moment, that your present moment would finally give in to the pressure of your persistence?
