Eckhart Tolle

“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.”
-Eckhart Tolle


”The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.”
-Eckhart Tolle


“Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment.”

-Eckhart Tolle

———————————————————————————————————–

“Give up defining yourself – to yourself or to others. You won’t die. You will come to life. And don’t be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it’s their problem. Whenever you interact with people, don’t be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.”
-Eckhart Tolle

“To love is to recognize yourself in another.”
-Eckhart Tolle

“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.”

-Eckhart Tolle

—————————————————————————————————–

 “Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it.”

-Eckhart Tolle
—————————————————————————————————————
“You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level.”
-Eckhart Tolle
—————————————————————————————————–
“Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time—past and future—the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is.”
Eckhart Tolle
——————————————————————————————————-
“The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but thought about it. Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking. Separate them from the situation, which is always neutral. It is as it is.”
Eckhart Tolle
————————————————————————————————
“Love is not selective, just as the light of the sun is not selective. It does not make one person special. It is not exclusive. Exclusivity is not the love of God but the “love” of
ego. However, the intensity with which true love is felt can vary. There may be one person who reflects your love back to you more clearly and more intensely than others, and if that person feels the same toward you, it can be said that you are in a love relationship with him or her. The bond that connects you with that person is the same bond that connects you with the person sitting next to you on a bus, or with a bird, a tree, a flower. Only the degree of intensity with which it is felt differs.”

“Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to “die before you die” — and find that there is no death.”
—————————————————————————————————-
“Being spiritual has nothing to do with what you believe and everything to do with your state of consciousness.”
——————————————————————————————————
“Is there a difference between happiness and inner peace? Yes. Happiness depends on conditions being perceived as positive; inner peace does not.”
——————————————————————————————————
“Pleasure is always derived from something outside you, whereas joy arises from within.”
—————————————————————————————————–
“Always say “yes” to the present moment. What could be more futile, more insane, than to create inner resistance to what already is? what could be more insane than to oppose life itself, which is now and always now? Surrender to what is. Say “yes” to life — and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.”
—————————————————————————————————–
*“You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you, and allowing that goodness to emerge. But it can only emerge if something fundamental changes in your state of consciousness.”
—————————————————————————————————–
“All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness.”
—————————————————————————————————–
“Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time. If it is a mistake, at least you learn something, in which case it’s no longer a mistake. If you remain stuck, you learn nothing.”
—————————————————————————————————-
“Living up to an image that you have of yourself or that other people have of you is inauthentic living.”
—————————————————————————————————
*“If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place. Primary reality is within; secondary reality without.”
————————————————————————————————
*“All the things that truly matter, beauty, love, creativity, joy and inner peace arise from beyond the mind.”
———————————————————————————————-
“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you will ever have.”
———————————————————————————————
*“To offer no resistance to life is to be in a state of grace, ease, and lightness. This state is then no longer dependent upon things being in a certain way, good or bad. It seems almost paradoxical, yet when your inner dependency on form is gone, the general conditions of your life, the outer forms, tend to improve greatly. Things, people, or conditions that you thought you needed for your happiness now come to you with no struggle or effort on your part, and you are free to enjoy and appreciate them – while they last. All those things, of course, will still pass away, cycles will come and go, but with dependency gone there is no fear of loss anymore. Life flows with ease.”
————————————————————————————————–
“What a liberation to realize that the “voice in my head” is not who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that.”
————————————————————————————————
*

“Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness.”
————————————————————————————————
“…the past gives you an identity and the future holds the promise of salvation, of fulfillment in whatever form. Both are illusions.”
————————————————————————————————-
“Being must be felt. It can’t be thought.”
————————————————————————————————–
“It is not uncommon for people to spend their whole life waiting to start living.”
————————————————————————————————-
*
“When you don’t cover up the world with words and labels, a sense of the miraculous returns to your life that was lost a long time ago when humanity, instead of using thought, became possessed by thought.”
————————————————————————————————–
“As soon as you honor the present moment, all unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out the present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love – even the most simple action.”
—————————————————————————————————–
“Humanity is now faced with a stark choice: Evolve or die. … If the structures of the human mind remain unchanged, we will always end up re-creating the same world, the same evils, the same dysfunction.”
—————————————————————————————————–
*
“All negativity is caused by an accumulation of psychological time and denial of the present. Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry – all forms of fear – are caused by too much future, and
not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms
of nonforgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence.”
—————————————————————————————————-
*
“The moment you become aware of the ego in you, it is strictly speaking no longer the ego, but just an old, conditioned mind-pattern. Ego implies unawareness. Awareness and ego cannot coexist.”
—————————————————————————————————–
“The moment that judgement stops through acceptance of what it is, you are free of the mind. You have made room for love, for joy, for peace.”
—————————————————————————————————
“In today’s rush we all think too much, seek too much, want too much and forget about the joy of just Being.”
—————————————————————————————————-
“Whenever you
become anxious or stressed, outer purpose has taken over, and you lost sight
of your inner purpose. You have forgotten that your state of consciousness is
primary, all else secondary.”
