Eckhart Tolle > Ordinary Unconsciousness And Deep Unconsciousness

As you probably know, in sleep you constantly move between the phases of dreamless sleep and the dream state. Similarly, in wakefulness most people only shift between ordinary unconsciousness and deep unconsciousness.

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.

Eckhart Tolle > Self-Healing Meditation

The more consciousness you bring into the body, the stronger the immune system, becomes. It is as if every cell awakens and rejoices. The body loves your attention.

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. 

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

Whether it’s business or something else, the question is always whether the transcendent dimension is still operating in the background, while in the foreground you talk about business. If the transcendent dimension is not there, then business becomes problematic and self-seeking. This even interferes with what could be a much more efficient way of doing business. By seeking some advantage through the other person or company, a lot of dysfunction comes into business.

Eckhart Tolle > Secular versus Religious Spirituality

Question: I heard the Dalai Lama say that secular spirituality is more important than religious spirituality. Do you think your teaching belongs to this category?

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 > Eckhart on Evil

Question: If Being, or God, is the creative source of all energy and thoughts, and thoughts from the ego are a negative form of energy, don’t these negative thoughts originate from Being?  In other words, did God create evil?

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.
