The ego-mind can never be in the Now. It is either going over the the past or hurtling into the future. It feels depression over the past and anxiety about the future. It cannot comprehend the Now or even feel comfortable in the silence of the Now.
The Soul lives in the Eternal Now. That is where peace resides.
Do you feel at peace? If not, you are being run by your ego-mind. The Soul does not recognize misery or chaos. This is because the Soul is a reflection of the eternal harmony of the Universe. If you are feeling upset or miserable, that is not a place of the Soul. The Soul never judges, it just is. And it allows everything and everyone else to be what they are.
If we continually judge others as we bolster our own sense of self-righteousness, we will never be in peace or discover eternal wisdom.
