"What really matters is not what function you fulfill in this world, but whether you identify with your function to such an extent that it takes you over and becomes a role that you play. When you play roles you are unconscious. When you catch yourself playing a role, that recognition creates a space between you and the role”.

“So people who are out of touch with the power within or the place where all power resides, the aliveness itself, consciousness itself, then they feel a sense of lack. Why are they not in touch with it? Because they are not present. They are not in the present moment because the present moment is that entry point into that place of power within. If you are not present you don't realize that there is a source of power within and then you feel that you need to get secondary power from someone or some situation or other people. Then the ego plays roles to manipulate the environment and other people to get what it thinks it needs not realizing that all the thing it thinks will give it the power that it seems to lack, all that is already within you, if you could only be present in the now.” ~ Eckhart Tolle, from “A New Earth”

Hello Liz and welcome :) So happy to meet you! I am so happy you enjoyed.
Of all the things I love about my life and work is the opportunity to meet amazing and dynamic women. Coaching women to guide them to discover their passion and create a life of purpose and prosperity is the most rewarding thing I could do in life. Watching the women discover inner awarenesses, aha moments, and spiritual breakthroughs is a life altering experience for me.
One of the questions I like to ask women is: “What are you excited about in this moment?”

I appreciate you sharing...I love my saying:
"The past has NO power and the future has NO presence". It just take conscious awareness to remind yourself. Your not alone! I find I have to remind myself at times as well.
At least you have that awareness about yourself. Bravo!
Hope to see you again, soon :)

Christine ;)

Interesting Indeed. I think people are rushing more than normal in this life and therefor they are missing many things, starting by their own selves!
