Duality is implied usually, in the usual prayer.  It implies that there is God, and here is me, asking God.  That duality is ultimately an illusion, because you are an expression of God.  You and God merge.  The deepest prayers, then, are no longer prayers as such.  They are when you adopt a listening attitude rather than a saying of words.  As long as you enjoy it, that’s fine.  But gradually get away from asking somebody to do something for you, because that keeps you stuck in duality.

Eckhart Tolle > Noticing the Gaps: The Fourth State of Consciousness

The fourth state of consciousness is thoughtless awareness. You can bring true perspective and balance into your life by moving towards this fourth state.

Eckhart Tolle > Eckhart on Low Self-Esteem and Anxiety

The awareness that’s already present in the questioner needs to be there in the moment when these thoughts arise — to recognize them as thoughts — and then, you are no longer completely trapped in what these thoughts are saying.

Eckhart Tolle > Outer and Inner Purpose

Astronomers have discovered evidence to suggest that the universe came into existence fifteen billion years ago in a gigantic explosion and has been expanding ever since. Not only has it been expanding, but it is also growing in complexity and becoming more and more differentiated.

Eckhart Tolle > The Stillness of Space

When you are no longer totally identified with forms, consciousness—who you are—becomes freed from its imprisonment in form. This freedom is the arising of inner space. It comes as a stillness, a subtle peace deep within you, even in the face of something seemingly bad.

Eckhart Tolle > Peace or Drama? The True Power of Presence

You want peace. There is no one who does not want peace. Yet there is something else in you that wants the drama, wants the conflict.

Question: When you know a certain person or situation is likely to trigger your Painbody, is it better to avoid them altogether or is it helpful to the development of Consciousness to stay with them and observe your Painbodies?

As awareness grows some people begin to think they’re “getting worse,” so to speak, but they’re simply becoming more conscious of what has already been there for many years.

Question: “My husband holds extremely different political views from mine.  He believes in war, guns, Fox News, and Sarah Palin.  I do not.  How do I constructively handle our differences?”

A beggar had been sitting by the side of a road for over thirty years. One day a stranger walked by. "Spare some change?" mumbled the beggar, mechanically holding out his old baseball cap. "I have nothing to give you," said the stranger. Then he asked: "What's that you are sitting on?" "Nothing," replied the beggar. "Just an old box. I have been sitting on it for as long as I can remember."
