I want to share a dream I had a few weeks ago. I was in the house I grew up in. I went to the backyard and noticed a handful of lions laying around on the mountainside. My immediate reaction was to turn around and run but instead, I stood there watching them in amazement. After a few seconds, I quietly walked back into the house. Although they didn’t pose a threat, I moved a heavy dresser against the door to make sure they couldn’t get in the house and ran to warn the rest of the family (I noticed panic/fear set in).
As I was rummaging through my closet, I came across Echkart Tolle’s first book “The Power of Now”. Tolle states that every minute you spend worrying about the future or regretting the past is a minute lost because all you have is the present moment.
