In ordinary unconsciousness, habitual resistance to or denial of what is creates the unease and discontent that most people accept as normal living.

Eckhart Tolle > The Beginning of Freedom

The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the possessing entity — the thinker. Knowing this enables you to observe the entity. The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. 

Q: You talk about Presence and Being as the keys to enjoying form, and creating positive circumstances, or softening circumstances.  How does karma fit into all of that?

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.

By living aligned with the present moment, you also align your will with the universal will, which you could call “the will of God”.  You don’t have a separate will.  The separate will wants to enhance or strengthen one’s sense of self.  The separate will is concerned with the “me”, the “I”, the ego. But there is a divine Consciousness, the one Consciousness, there is an evolutionary impulse.  What we are doing here at every moment, is to align ourselves with that.

Question: Most spiritual traditions have a strong emphasis on morality.  What role does morality play in your teachings?

There’s a particular dimension where creativity arises.  It’s a little bit like the wick burning the flame, and its sustenance is the oil – it’s in an oil lamp, and you are the flame.  All the analogies, by the way, are very deficient, but it’s just a distant approximation to get you into a sense of what that place is.  So you are the flame, and you feel your way into the very source – down the wick into where the oil is, inside yourself.  That’s the place, the source, so if anything is new, creative, then it has a fragrance of the source.

Eckhart Tolle answers the question: What kind of guidance would you offer to people to remember, or be aware that we are a creative force in a creative Universe?

There are more children born nowadays who may not have to go through the deep unconsciousness that [adults] had to go through, certainly that I had to go through.  And also there are more children born nowadays to parents who are in the awakening process, or relatively conscious parents. In my generation, I can’t think of any conscious parents.  There might have been some, but it was rare.

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.
