Schlussfolgerungen

  • Zeit ist überhaupt nicht kostbar, denn sie ist eine Illusion. Was dir so kostbar erscheint, ist nicht die Zeit, sondern der einzige Punkt, der außerhalb der Zeit liegt: das Jetzt. Das allerdings ist kostbar. Je mehr du dich auf die Zeit konzentrierst, auf Vergangenheit und Zukunft, desto mehr verpasst du das Jetzt, das Kostbarste, was es gibt. Eckhart Tolle (*1948) deutschstämmiger kanadischer Lehrer spiritueller Themen, Erfolgsautor, JETZT! Die Kraft der Gegenwart. Ein Leitfaden zum spirituellen Erwachen, 1999, J. Kamphausen Verlag, 1. Juli 2000

Quotes by Eckhart Tolle

Personal avowals

  • 'I cannot live with myself any longer.' This was the thought that kept repeating itself in my mind. Then suddenly I became aware 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.' I was so stunned by this strange realization that my mind stopped. I was fully conscious, but there were no more thoughts. Then I felt drawn into what seemed like a vortex of energy. It was a slow movement at first and then accelerated. I was gripped by an intense fear, and my body started to shake. I heard the words 'resist nothing,' as if spoke inside my chest. I could feel myself being sucked into a void. It felt as if the void was inside myself rather than outside. Suddenly there was no more fear, and I let myself fall into that void.

Deep crisis:

  • That's an important point for many people to reach. That sense of deep crisis — when the world as they have known it, and the sense of self that they have known that is identified with the world, become meaningless. That happened to me. I was just that close to suicide and then something else happened — a death of the sense of self that lived through identifications, identifications with my story, things around me, the world.

Insights

  • The opposite of life is not death. The opposite of death is birth. Life has no opposite. Life is eternal. Eckhart Tolle (*1948) German-born Canadian teacher on spirituality, bestselling author, Stillness Speaks, New World Library, new edition 1. August 2003
  • True change happens within, not without. Eckhart Tolle (*1948) German-born Canadian teacher on spirituality, bestselling author, source unknown

 

  • Liberty begins when you realize that you are not the "thinker". The moment you start to observe the thinker, a high level of superior conscience activates within you. And, then you realize there exists a vast domain of intelligence beyond thought and that thoughts are only a small portion of what we call "intelligence". You also realize that all things that seem important to you – beauty, love, creativity, happiness, inner peace – all emerge from places beyond the mind. Eckhart Tolle (*1948) German-born Canadian teacher on spirituality, bestselling author, source unknown

 

 

  • Do not accuse each other of being unconscious. The moment you start to argue, you have identified with a mental position and are now defending not only that position but also your sense of self. The ego is in charge. You have become unconscious. At times, it may be appropriate to point out certain aspects of your partner's behavior. If you are very alert, very present, you can do so without ego involvement – without blaming, accusing, or making the other wrong.
    When your partner behaves unconsciously, relinquish all judgement. Judgement is either to confuse someone's unconscious behavior with who they are or project your own unconsciousness onto another person and mistake that for who they are. To relinquish judgement does not mean that you do not recognize dysfunction and unconsciousness when you see it. It means "being in the knowing" rather than "being the reaction" and the judge. You will then either be totally free of reaction or you may react and still be the knowing, the space in which the reaction is watched and allowed to be. Instead of fighting the darkness, you bring in the light. Instead of reacting to delusion, you see the delusion yet at the same time look through it. Being the knowing creates a clear space of loving presence that allows all things and people to be as they are. No greater catalyst for transformation exists. If you practice this, your partner cannot stay with you and remain unconscious.
    If you both agree that the relationship will be your spiritual practice [...] Learn to give expression to what you feel without blaming.

  • So it is perfectly possible for an enlightened person, if the need for male or female polarity is not met, to feel a sense of lack or incompleteness.

  • Naming something as bad causes is an emotional contraction within you. When you let it be, without naming it, enormous power is suddenly available to you.

Tolle's awakening

Born in 1948 in Lünen, Germany, Tolle received no formal education between the age thirteen and twenty-two. He says that he simply stopped attending school due to a hostile environment, a decision his father wholeheartedly supported. On his own time he took language classes, read literature and studied astronomy. Unhappy as a child, Tolle thought about suicide from an early age, something that would periodically haunt him until his later awakening.


Eckhart Tolle

"How can I eliminate myself from this world," he wondered. Entering the University of London at age 22, Tolle studied psychology and philosophy and graduated with the highest mark possible. He subsequently received a scholarship to continue his work at Cambridge University. It was here, in 1977, at the age of 29, that Eckhart's life took an unexpected turn.
After years of an "unbearable" and "loathsome" existence Tolle awoke terrified in the middle of the night to be faced with his worst demons. "I cannot live with myself any longer" he repeated to himself over and over again. Everything was "so alien, so hostile and so utterly meaningless" that he longed for annihilation and non-existence. Living had become almost entirely superficial. The "motivating power" behind his life, particularly his academic career, was "fear and unhappiness." The facade he had built for himself was tumbling down.
Then, as if a deeper and more profound consciousness took over, Tolle began asking himself "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, one of them wasn't true he wondered. His body began shaking as a powerful fear overcame him. The words "resist nothing" internally echoed in his chest. For the first time he felt the void inside himself as opposed to outside. Abruptly the fear disappeared and he let himself "fall into the void."
The next morning Tolle awoke to a different world. It was beautiful and alive. He saw love expressed in the dawn sunlight peeking through the curtains. As he became emotional he walked around the city as if he was born again.
After this profound inner shift Tolle claims to have lived in a "state of uninterrupted deep peace and bliss" for around five months. He studied spiritual texts, worked with teachers and eventually spent two years in a state of profound joy while sitting on park benches. He was realizing that his shift in thinking had peeled back the layers to reveal the "ever-present 'I am': consciousness in its pure state prior to identification with form." Tolle had discovered something of immense value and was now ready to share it with the world.
