When you get into your car, shut the door and be there for just half a minute. Breathe, feel the energy inside your body, look around at the sky, the trees.

Space is one of the most important qualities to develop throughout the course of our daily actions. Space only truly comes when you learn how to simply your life. When you feel overwhelmed or busy, one of the best and simplest actions you can do is simply to take this space to breathe. Even as little as 30 seconds can do wonders to reset your energy, clarify your goals, and help you decide how to proceed.

It may look as if the situation is creating the suffering, but ultimately this is not so – your resistance is. – Eckhart Tolle
In addition to the importance of remaining centered in the Now-moment, Tolle teaches us how to release our past negative energy in order to more fully appreciate our lives as they occur. In essence, this is the hear of what he means by presence, but they also connect directly to his message about the need to release the emotional pain body and live a life free from unnecessary suffering.
