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. 

Eckhart Tolle > The Stillness of Space

The words This, too, will pass are pointers toward reality. In pointing to the impermanence of all forms, by implication, they are also pointing to the eternal.

Eckhart Tolle > Spiritual Bypassing or Avoidance

Awareness or presence is never avoidance. In awareness, you allow yourself to feel whatever it is that you feel; you do not repress it in any way. Do you sense unresolved pain within? How are you going to resolve the pain except by allowing yourself to feel it?

Eckhart Tolle > Yield to Overcome: The Power of Nonresistance

Nonresistance doesn’t necessarily mean doing nothing. All it means is that any “doing” becomes nonreactive. Remember the deep wisdom underlying the practice of Eastern martial arts: Don’t resist the opponent’s force. Yield to overcome.


"Joy does not come from what you do, it flows into what you do and thus into this world from deep within you."

Eckhart Tolle > Understanding Your Ego

I’m discovering egoic compulsions that I didn’t know I had before. Is this a good thing? How does this process work within relationships?

Eckhart Tolle > Conditioned by the Past: Karma and Consciousness

The voice in the head has a life of its own. Most people are at the mercy of that voice; they are possessed by thought, by the mind. And since the mind is conditioned by the past, you are then forced to reenact the past again and again.

Eckhart Tolle > Balancing Negative Emotions

What is a negative emotion? An emotion that is toxic to the body and interferes with its balance and harmonious functioning.

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.

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.
