I’m life coach Peter Winslow. Lately we’ve been talking about powerful strategies and deep philosophies that can and do make a huge impact in your life. And now for something completely different. If you’re ready for a little humor, try this on:
In the spirit of levity, here's what I wrote to an emailer who asked me (somewhat sarcastically) about Eckhart Tolle and the power of the “now” moment. If the time is always “now" she asked, then why would we plan to meet for your class this weekend or for that matter—why plan anything at all?
I recognized this as a playful attempt to “stump the chump” and thus responded:
“One may believe we actually plan ahead but in essence we are swept along by great winds of chance, not unlike tidal currents born of the relational circumstances presently sensed and beseeching non-emotively nor resistently to be carried on them and verily, to add our knowledge and strength to the dervish sirocco rather than endeavor in the ineffectual and nugatory vanity of navigating against such forces whilst occasioning to observe the natural processes of ‘what is’ by modeling our outward activities upon the summoning of knowledge not simply of when and how to interpret, but also when not to act, presume, assume, or subsume said actions and their consequences in a grand primeval plan of hindsight and the banality of blissful innocence used to confine the self in an orchestration of reverse inertia intent to tackle whatever positively insists on ‘now’ being dealt with.”
To which she responded: "I see..."
'Nuff said. Should the winds of chance ever sweep you into our community, I look forward to conversing with you as well.
