The author says that most of the people are busy either thinking about their past or the future. When people do not think about their present but only their past or the future, they are engulfed by fear and other negative emotions. In short, the author says that if one can stop thinking about their past and the future and live in their present, they will be happier in life.
Tolle also explores the ego’s search for wholeness. The author says that most of us spend our lives trying to achieve external things like a house, a good job, a good physique and so on. People pursue these things to define themselves and their achievements. These things, however, are temporary in nature and do not provide any control to the person pursuing them. People again enter into relationships merely because they feel lonely and insecure. It is better to be lonely for some time and learn to become comfortable with oneself. Doing this makes people more attractive to others and they will then be able to enter into and be in a fulfilling relationship.
Tolle also discussed how people get used to a certain way of living and are not open to trying out new ways. They become living their lives a certain way even if they are unhappy and are leading a mediocre life. People should explore new ways and come out of their comfort zone to lead a more happy, fulfilling and meaningful.
