The Power of Now (Song & Lyrics)

"The Power of Now" is the first single from the soon to be released album, "The Power of Now". This song by Bodhi Jeffreys has to do with Eckhart Tolle's awakening experience and the essence of Eckhart's teachings about living in presence, in the Now.

Haunted by all the fear that’s arising
Stuck in my mind
It’s so paralyzing
To carry the pain of over a thousand years

Twenty-nine years where nothing goes right
I struggle through the days
I dread all the nights
Can’t live with myself
I want to disappear

Am I one or two
So confused
Who or what am I
My heart my head
Spinning on the bed
The last thing I heard was a voice that said 

Resist nothing
Feel the Power of Now
Allow it all to be and you are free
Trusting life to be as it will be
Live in reality
Resist nothing

First thing I heard a bird with a song
A diamond-like sound
Feel like I belong
To the luminous light so bright
Only love could be

The peace and the bliss
Filled all of my cells
No sign of the fear
No symptoms of hell
No lingering story of the little me

Without the mental noise
And ego’s ploys
Who or what am I
The same as you less a belief or two
Living in a state of presence ready to

Resist nothing
Feel the Power of Now
Allow it all to be and you are free

Trusting life to be as it will be
Live in reality

Resist nothing

Feel the Power of Now
Allow it all to be and be free
To respond to life in harmony
Awake in reality

No longer in the past
Freedom is here at last
Letting go future’s grasp
Oh freedom freedom
The flowering of consciousness
Emerges from the ashes
In stillness
Awakening the masses
Into the heart of pure awareness

Without the mental noise
And ego’s ploys
Who or what am I
The same as you less a belief or two
Living with the state of presence shining through

Resist nothing
Feel the Power of Now
Allow it all to be and you are free

Trusting life to be as it will be
Live in reality

Resist nothing

Feel the Power of Now
Allow it all to be and Be free
To respond to life in harmony
Awake in reality
Resist nothing

Feel the Power of Now
Come on and let it be
In presence
Living as a blessing in the world
Awake in love's eternal peace
Resist nothing

Feel the Power of Now
Be at one and free
On a New Earth
You and me
Together in the oneness
Living now eternally
Resist nothing

Feel the Power of Now
Allow it all to be and you are free
Trusting life to be as it will be
Live in reality
Resist nothing
