Failure

Although there is much wisdom in the saying quoted by Eckhart Tolle, “What gets in the way is the way.” It is not the easiest to act upon and quite easy to forget in the rush and hum of things. I keep remember another thing Eckhart said, and that is that a person can be successful at remaining in the present moment, being one with the now, and yet fail on the outer level when it comes to their career, relationships and affluence. That is a bitter pill to swallow. A very hard thing to accept. Nonetheless, it is true. Presence does not equal success in this world. Doesn’t equal happiness.
