The insanity of time

The Power or Now

Today I feel this resonates more than anything, and I will just quote Eckhart Tolle word by word:

“You will not have any doubt that psychological time is a mental disease if you look at its collective manifestations. They occur, for example, in the form of ideologies such as communism, national socialism or any nationalism, or rigid religious belief systems, which operate under the implicit assumption that the highest good lies in the future and that therefore the end justifies the means. The end is an idea, a point in the mind-projected future, when salvation in whatever form – happiness, fulfilment, equality, liberation, and so on – will be attained. Not infrequently, the means of getting there are the enslavement, torture, and murder of people in the present.”

The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle
