The more you are focused on time—past and future—the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

5. “You don’t have to wait for something “meaningful” to come into your life so that you can finally enjoy what you do. There is more meaning in joy than you will ever need. The “waiting to start living” syndrome is one of the most common delusions of the unconscious state.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

You cannot lose consciousness because it is, in essence, who you are.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

11. “Accept – then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

That’s all there ever is.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

13. “Give up defining yourself – to yourself or to others. You won’t die. You will come to life. And don’t be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it’s their problem. Whenever you interact with people, don’t be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

“What a caterpillar calls the end of the world we call a butterfly.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

“You are the Universe expressing itself as a human for a little while.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

23. “Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

24. “As long as we define ourselves in terms of our pain and our problems, we will never be free from them.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

25. “Roman philosopher Tacitus rightly observed that “the desire for safety stands against every great and noble enterprise.” If uncertainty is unacceptable to you, it turns into fear. If it is perfectly acceptable, it turns into increased aliveness, alertness, and creativity.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

26. “Your outer journey may contain a million steps; your inner journey only has one: the step you are taking right now.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

“Being must be felt. It can’t be thought.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

32. “The word enthusiasm comes from ancient Greek – en and Theos meaning God. And the related word Enthousiazein means “to be possessed by a god.” With enthusiasm, you will find that you don’t have to do it all by yourself. In fact, there is nothing of significance that you can do by yourself. Sustained enthusiasm brings into existence a wave of creative energy, and all you have to do then is “ride the wave.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

33. “Words reduce reality to something the human mind can grasp, which isn’t very much.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

34. “When you drop your expectations that a person, a situation, a place, or an object should fulfil you, it’s easier to be present in this moment because you’re no longer looking to the next one. Most people want to get what they want, whereas the secret is to want what you get at this moment.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

“When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation or accept it, all else is madness.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

36. “To be identified with your mind is to be trapped in time: the compulsion to live almost exclusively through memory and anticipation. This creates an endless preoccupation with past and future and an unwillingness to honour and acknowledge the present moment and allow it to be. The compulsion arises because the past gives you an identity and the future holds the promise of salvation, of fulfilment in whatever form. Both are illusions.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

37. “The old patterns of thought, emotion, behaviour, reaction, and desire are acted out in endless repeat performances, a script in your mind that gives you an identity of sorts but distorts or covers up the reality of the Now. The mind then creates an obsession with the future as an escape from the unsatisfactory present.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

38. “Do not pollute your beautiful, radiant Being nor the Earth with negativity. Do not give unhappiness in any form whatsoever a dwelling place inside you.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

41. “Don’t let a mad world tell you that success is anything other than a successful present moment.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

42. “An enlarged image of yourself or a vision of yourself having this or that are all static goals and therefore don’t empower you.

“Suffering is necessary until you realize it is unnecessary.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

53. “Your goal or vision is then already a reality within you, on the level of mind and of feeling. Enthusiasm is the power that transfers the mental blueprint into the physical dimension. That is the creative use of mind, and that is why here is no wanting involve. You cannot manifest what you want; you can only manifest what you already have. You may get what you want through hard work and stress, but that is not the way of the new earth. Jesus gave the key to the creative use of mind and to the conscious manifestation of form when he said, ‘Whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

54. “Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time. If it is a mistake, at least you learn something, in which case it’s no longer a mistake. If you remain stuck, you learn nothing.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

55. “The key is to be in a state of permanent connectedness with your inner body – to feel it at all times. This will rapidly deepen and transform your life. The more consciousness you direct into the inner body, the higher its vibrational frequency becomes.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

60. “Wisdom comes with the ability to be still. Just look and just listen. No more is needed. Being still, looking, and listening activates the non-conceptual intelligence within you. Let stillness direct your words and actions.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

61. “To alert you that you have allowed yourself to be taken over by psychological time, you can use a simple criterion. Ask yourself: Is there joy, ease, and lightness in what I am doing? If there isn’t, then time is covering up the present moment, and life is perceived as a burden or a struggle.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

“It may look as if the situation is creating the suffering, but ultimately this is not so – your resistance is.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

63. “When listening to another person, don’t just listen with your mind, listen with your whole body. You are giving the other person space — space to be. It is the most precious gift you can give.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

Even though you have a goal, what you are doing in the present moment needs to remain the focal point of your attention; otherwise, you will fall out of alignment with universal purpose.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

 “Power over others is weakness disguised as strength.”― ECKHART TOLLE

69. “The moment that judgement stops through acceptance of what it is, you are free of the mind. You have made room for love, for joy, for peace.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

70. “As the ego is no longer running your life, the psychological need for external security, which is illusory anyway, lessens. You are able to live with uncertainty, even enjoy it. When you become comfortable with uncertainty, infinite possibilities open up in your life. It means fear is no longer a dominant factor in what you do and no longer prevents you from taking action to initiate change.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

“The significance is hiding in the insignificant. Appreciate everything.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

Whenever you are not honouring the present moment by allowing it to be, you are creating drama.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

 

“Only the truth of who you are, if realized, will set you free.” ― ECKHART TOLLE

Feel how that activity enriches or deepens not only your life but that of countless others. Feel yourself being an opening through which energy flows from the unmanifested Source of all life through you for the benefit of all.” ― ECKHART TOLLE
