In our modern world of more, more, more... we often treat the present moment, as a stepping-stone to the next moment. Eckhart Tolle explains that when we live in this way, we are out of alignment with life. Life only happens in the present moment.
In this video, Eckhart Tolle talks about becoming friendly with the present moment.

When we live this way we create a negative internal state of resistance that leads to unhappiness. Why not make the present moment your BFF?
