The now bubble, isolated from the past and the future, isolated even from the now that is between the past and the future.

The now bubble, unseen from the relative angle of time, can only be seen from within the bubble.

The now bubble, so serene and quiet, how come the mind puts so much resistance to entering such a blessed place?

The now bubble, the mind can't function without content, and so the mind obviously dislikes serenity and quietness, hence its resistance to entering the now bubble.

The now bubble, the mind will do whatever it can to prevent you from trying to enter it.

The now bubble, and if the mind fails to prevent you, it will try to fool you to enter a cheap imitation of the now bubble, a now that is between past and future, a now that is still on the time dimension. This is NOT the time bubble.

The now bubble, so how can it be entered?

The now bubble, you cannot enter it, if you try to enter it, it will be blown, you can only allow yourself to be brought in.

The now bubble, you can allow yourself to be brought in by becoming quiet and then recognizing mentally (not just intellectually) that it is the only thing that exists. Then, the bubble will advance towards you and hug you inside.

The now bubble, you will know that you are already in there when you feel the unmistakable sense of bubbleness of the bubble.

The same way darkness can't

The same way darkness can't enter light and fire can't enter water, noise can't enter quietness.

Fair enough. And why the

Fair enough. And why the recognition that the now is the only thing that exists actually enables the entering to the now?

My speculation

I don't really have an explanation to that - I guess that when a realization that something is the only thing that exists happens and given that your being is also the only thing that exists, then consciousness merges its view of these two that are one, and so your being turns to be identical to the now and hence the entrance to the bubble.

The now vs. the now bubble

I think that the most important point in the post is the emphasis of the distinction between the "now" which is still on the time axis (relative to past and future) and the "now" which is isolated from these metrics of time, the now of the presence, of the actuality.

Many who try to practice Eckhart Tolle's are mistaken in the sense that they seek the now which is still on the time axis and so it is extremely important to stress that distinction.
