A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on god, being, words, language, awakening, reality, and truth

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on presence, mind, thoughts, ego, and attachment

When you are present, you can allow the mind to be as it is without getting entangled in it. The mind in itself is a wonderful tool. Dysfunction sets in when you seek your self in it and mistake it for who you are.
