The decision to make the present moment into your friend is the end of the ego. The ego can never be in alignment with the present moment, which is to say, aligned with life, since its very nature compels it to ignore, resist, or devalue the Now.” Eckhart Tolle (from The Power of Now)
Who is the decider to make the present moment its friend? Is choice a decision? Choice requires an either/or to choose from. When decision is like a choice, you can’t choose to make the present moment into your friend because there is no alternator to the present moment. There is no either/or; there is no PM and NOT PM, so you can’t choose between them, making a decision for the PM because it is the better of the two. The Present Moment has no second alternative moment.
Seeing THAT makes the present moment or the world your friend. There is no choice in SEEING. Seeing is not a choice because there no Seeing and Not Seeing from which to choose. Once can’t choose to See. You already ARE Seeing. You can’t choose what you already always are.
