“Stressful energy arises when you think some future moment is more important than the present moment.” Eckhart Tolle There is no future to speak of because it has not arrived yet. It cannot be your reality.
Your mind however insists on operating with deeply ingrained patterns that tell you to look to the future for your happiness and fulfillment. Therefore you are jolted out of this present moment.
The only moment you can experience is the present moment.
When you become aware of your present state and allow your intuitive heart to guide you then you realize any information you need comes from within.
When you feel discontent you are imagining a future that you are attempting to construct from here when there has not yet arrived.
You might as well try to carry water in a paper bag. There will be effort but chances of success are slim.
Take the circumstances of your life now and allow them to guide your actions without a pushing effort.
It is with this energy of awareness that you can change the course of your life.
This is who you are.
