The Power Of NOW

Recently my friend has been trying to get me to read
The Power of Now.

a spiritual self help book.
I hate self help books, but shes been raving about how it changed her life, how shes a happier more complete person.

Why i asked her.

She says cause now i live in the NOW. Not yesterday, not the future. I really appreciate my now.

So zeze im gna ask you this miss power of now.

What if my NOW really really sucks?

Then what?

Hehehe, I tried to read it but didn't like his style so much. But what I did love and has totally transformed my life was Face the Fear and do it anyway.

Don't wanna be a party popper.. But your NOW could get much worse (Allah la ygool).. And if I can appreciate my NOW with stage 4 Cancer trust me you should be fine with your Now..

I hate this comment that am leaving but I just want you to see that your NOW does NOT suck its just you're looking at it from the sucky point of view :/ Try to look at from a different perspective..

سؤال جميل ..

لم أقرأ الكتاب ومع ذلك يمكنني الإجابة ..
القصد من الآن أو الحاضر هو التكيف معه
قدر المستطاع فـ الماضي ذهب بآلامه وسعادته فلم علينا استحضاره معنا؟ والغد أمره بيد الله ، لم نفكر فيه بكل هذه المساحة ؟

الحاضر مع بداية اليوم ينتظر منّا عملا جديدا همة أكبر تخطيطا أوسع ونظرة قوية وروحا قادرة على وضع لبنة متينة في بناء عملنا المخلص ، إذ ليس من الجيد إهدار ساعات هذا اليوم في التفكير في الماضي أو ولو فعلت كذا أو لو قلت كذا أو أو أو ، يجب أن نفهم أن هناك ما يرحل مع الدقائق والثواني الفانية .

هناك كتاب آخر لا يحضرني اسمه بما معناه كيف نزيل ترسبات الماضي أو كما أسمتهم الكاتبة التراكمات كـ أرقام الهواتف القديمة لأشخاص نعلم أننا لا نحتاجهم أو أوراق او أشياء كثير نجمعها دون حاجتنا لا فقط على أساسا لربماسنحتاجها مستقبلا ...
سأبحث عن اسمه وأخبرك به

على أية حال ... لن تخسري شيئا لو قرأته طالما هناك تجربة ممتاز (صديقتك) .. وأخبرينا ماذا حصل معكِ عزيزتي

دمتِ لمن تحبي

Hey I was like you, but when I read one the self help book, I loved it, It really changed my personality,attitude and lifestyle:D

July 15, 2010 at 7:51 PM  

yeah iv heard of that book, also not a fan

iv tried to read several self help books.
bs i never ever got into em!

u know i love u, and ofcourse no matter what is happening to u someone always has it worse.
and sometimes, just for a little while, i like to wallow in my misery and not think positive and just be miserable, its god for the soul.

i understand the concept behind the book, but i dont believe in it.
I always have to look back at my past, it makes me who i am. and i always have to think about my future, that doesnt make me any less present in my now.
and sometimes its good to cary ur pain from yesterday. it makes for a more compassionate person.

which one did u read?

another "now" is always in line!
just wait for the next one :)

July 17, 2010 at 9:35 AM  

hate self help books too
if ur now sucks; u have to remmeber happy things from ur past or hope for a better future! :p
so the theory of just now, doesnt really work.

forget self-help books..
egray elqur'an..

and i read FourMe's comment a couple of days ago, and i can't stop thinking about what she wrote ever since..
i seriously doubt anyone has the right to even voice an opinion after what she said

allah y7afthech enshala ajer o 3afya ya rab

July 17, 2010 at 10:45 AM  

If ur NOW sucks then work hard to get
a better fature.. Hope u will always get a wonderful
now and best for the future ;)

Hi eshda3wa
sounds a good book
if your now is suck just try to change it.
I think we can't live without keep peeking at the future cuz it gives us the faith, the faith of doing the best to live our dreams.
thanks for sharing dear

U cant dismiss everything oo focus 3ala il (now), it isnt realistic.

Now is a consequence of the past and a template for the future.

All time zones are interlinked.

im not sure of this self-help book!
but when my NOW sucks..I guess I decide to see the NOW GLASS as half full!

Wanasa this post was written on my birthday =D!

"What if my Now really really sucks?" That is an interesting question. Honestly, I think that question replied to his whole book.
