Forget about the future. Live each day confident that God loves his children. Each day, in itself brings with it an eternity.

The Alchemist
Page 103

An amazing thought. Amazing because this is Eckhart Tolle’s premise for his book The Power of Now. Mr Tolle suggests to live in the NOW. Because the now is all we have.

Amazing because, years before Eckhart Tolle’s book came to fruition, we have Paulo Coelho saying roughly the same thing. Each day brings an eternity. Well, yeah it does if you can practice living in the now.

Don’t look to the future. The future can be a scary place. You have no idea what’s around the next bend. So why worry about it? All you have is right now. Enjoy right now. I’m sure at some point during your time here you’ve heard the saying:
“Yesterday is History, Tomorrow a Mystery, Today is a Gift, That’s why it’s called the Present.”

So take Mr. Coelho’s advice. Forget about the future, live in the now and ALWAYS remember:
God DOES love his children.
