A Succinct Summary of Eckhart Tolle's book The Power Of Now

Eckhart Tolle's book "The Power Of Now" wonderfully/succinctly summarized in a mere 5:42 by Sam Harris.

I had no idea Sam Harris was an Eckhart Tolle fan, though it makes perfect sense in hindsight.

Here are a couple of quotes to give you an idea of what he discusses in the video:

"The past is a memory. It's a thought arising in the present. The future is merely anticipated. It is another thought, arising now. What we truly have is this moment. And we spend most of our lives forgetting this truth, repudiating it, fleeing it, overlooking it. And the horror is that we succeed. We manage to never really connect with the present moment and find fulfillment there because we are continually hoping to become happy in the future, and the future never arrives."
"As a matter of conscious experience, the reality of your life, is always now. There's probably nothing more important to understand about your mind than that, if you want to be happy in this world."
