The past has no power

eckhart tolle

Yes, the sentiment Eckhart Tolle (pronounced TOE-Lay) expresses in the quote above is a variation of the timeless advice of Buddhism and other teachings, but it bears repeating.

Here’s what I’m going to do this weekend.

Every time I notice my thoughts drifting to some event or experience from the past I’m going to use Tolle’s well-worded counsel as a mantra. I’ve been experimenting with this type of thought-control technique recently and it’s helped ease anxiety when it arises.

Do you have a favorite mantra-like phrase or affirmation?
