Eckhart Tolle


German / Canadian spiritual teacher, motivational speaker, and writer.
Eckhart Tolle
Right now we are being given the experience we need to raise our consciousness.
Tolle quotes
What you react to in others, you strengthen in yourself.
Tolle
If her past were your past, her pain your pain, her level of consciousness your level of consciousness, you would think and act exactly as she does. With this realization comes forgiveness, compassion, peace.




Tolle Eckhart quotes
... the ego's need to be periodically in conflict with something or someone in order to strengthen its sense of separation between me and the other, without which it cannot survive.
Tolle Eckhart
When you accept everything for what it is without labels you are outside of your ego.
Eckhart Tolle quotes
“I cannot live with myself any longer.” This was the thought that kept repeating itself in my mind. Then suddenly I became aware of what a peculiar thought it was. “Am I one or two? If I cannot live with myself, there must be two of me: the ‘I’ and the ‘self’ that ‘I’ cannot live with.” “Maybe,” I thought, “only one of them is real.”
Eckhart Tolle
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.
Tolle Eckhart quotes
You say, “I want to know myself.” You are the I. You are the knowing. You are the consciousness through which everything is known and that cannot know itself. It is itself. There is nothing to know beyond that. And yet all knowing arises out of it. The “I” cannot make itself into an object of knowledge, of consciousness.
So you cannot become an object to yourself. That is the very reason the illusion of egoic identity arose because mentally you made yourself into an object. “That's me,” you say, and then you begin to have a relationship with yourself and tell others and yourself your story.
Tolle
The past gives you an identity and the future holds the promise of salvation. ... Both are illusions.
Tolle Eckhart
Instead of asking "what do I want from life?", a more powerful question is, "what does life want from me?".
Eckhart Tolle
Accepting means you allow yourself to feel whatever it is you are feeling at that moment...you can't argue with what is. Well, you can, but if you do, you suffer.




Eckhart Tolle quotes
Nothing ever happened in the past that can prevent you from being present now; and if the past cannot prevent you from being present now, what power does it have?
Eckhart Tolle
Internal and external are ultimately one. When you no longer perceive the world as hostile, there is no more fear, and when there is no more fear, you think, speak and act differently. Love and compassion arise, and they affect the world.
Tolle quotes
Only by awakening can you know the true meaning of that word.
Tolle Eckhart
Many people live habitually as if the present moment were an obstacle that they need to overcome in order to get to the next moment, and imagine living your whole live like that. Always, this moment is not quite good enough because you need to get to the next one.
Tolle Eckhart quotes
When you look at a tree, you are aware of the tree. When you have a thought or feeling, you are aware of that thought or feeling. When you have a pleasurable or painful experience, you are aware of that experience. These seem to be true and obvious statements. Yet if you look at them very closely, you will find that in a subtle way their very structure contains a fundamental illusion, an illusion which is unavoidable when you use language. Thought and language create an apparent duality and a separate person where there is none.
The truth is you are not somebody who is aware of the tree, the thought, feeling or experience. You are the awareness or consciousness in and by which those things appear. As you go about your life, can you be aware of yourself as the awareness in which the entire content of your life unfolds?
Eckhart Tolle
All the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.
Eckhart Tolle quotes
When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself.
Eckhart Tolle
Love is the recognition of the formless in the other.
Tolle Eckhart
If there is no joy, ease, or lightness in what you are doing, it does not necessarily mean that you need to change what you are doing. It may be sufficient to change the how. “How” is always more important than “what.” See if you can give much more attention to the doing than to the result that you want to achieve through it.
