The only thing that could have been more stressful than my job was to get laid off from it last month. I had just started to read Tolle and realized that he was the answer to my prayer to the universe for a teacher of buddhism without the "ism," an awakened one who I could understand. My time would have been filled with being angry at my previous employer, worrying about my future and feeling sorry for myself. Instead it is filled with Tolle's teaching and I am grateful for this time and space to absorb them. The quote that I keep in mind is "If you can recognize illusion as illusion, it dissolves." Using the methods he describes, recognition is my daily practice.
