Wonderful, important reminders of who you really are. Any random page I go to speaks to me, and brings me back into Presence.
Diana Shaffner
Little book - big subject. Are you ever actually present in the 'now'? Many of us are constantly lost in thought. Thought that is, that is neither important nor meaningful. This constant inner dialog is more some sort of destructive silent noise instigated by the ego. Letting go of the ego and being fully present in the moment (or at least trying to), is a highly spiritual practice. The book 'What about Now?' is a compilation of many very shorts texts on the subject, all of which serve as remind ...more

Reasons why I love this book, is because it has short concise explanations on how to live by the moment, and I always find myself referring to it every night. Its been good especially just to remind me of the importance of being free.
You know how easy it is to get sidetracked by the ego? This book was made to counteract that. Sometimes all you need is a little pointer to put you back on track to living from essence, as Eckhart Tolle calls our true nature, and this little gem is overflowing with them. Written in Gina's clear, lucid style, it's the gift that keeps on giving with wisdom culled from a wide assortment of her other published treasures. I find little reminders invaluable for my own spiritual practice and have benef ...more

Gina Lake gets it! Clearly she does because she writes so lucidly about being in the moment. Importantly (to me), her clarity and insights have helped me "get it" too. She has probably helped many, many people in this way. So many people I know are coming around to living a life in the present but I am guessing a lot of people (like me not long ago) don't really understand what that means nor do they understand how to live it. Gina does. She has helped me enormously with her writing and for that ...more
Although simple, this book is perfect for a quick reminder to stay present. The book is divided into one page bits of wisdom, reminding us to stay in the moment. I have it on my kindle and pick it up to read a page in those moments when I've become stressed or have forgotten to stay in the now.

Examples of sections include: Enjoy the simple pleasures, Experience your true self in the moment, Love what is or suffer, Choose how to respond to life, Stress is a sign you are believing the mind, Give u

“A lot of things are inherent in life -change, birth, death, aging, illness, accidents, calamities, and losses of all kinds- but these events don't have to be the cause of ongoing suffering. Yes, these events cause grief and sadness, but grief and sadness pass, like everything else, and are replaced with other experiences. The ego, however, clings to negative thoughts and feelings and, as a result, magnifies, intensifies, and sustains those emotions while the ego overlooks the subtle feelings of joy, gratitude, excitement, adventure, love, and peace that come from Essence. If we dwelt on these positive states as much as we generally dwell on our negative thoughts and painful emotions, our lives would be transformed.” 144 likes
“Try giving up all the thoughts that make you feel bad, or even just some of them, and see how doing that changes your life. You don't need negative thoughts. All they have ever given you was a false self that suffers. They are all lies.” 57 likes
