A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on romance, love, experience, and human condition

The reason why the romantic love relationship is such an intense and universally sought-after experience is that it seems to offer liberation from a deep-seated state of fear, need, lack, and incompleteness that is part of the human condition in its unredeemed and unenlightened state.

Be at least as interested in what goes on inside you as what happens outside. If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on acceptance, responsibility, tolerance, happiness, and change

Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on transformation, change, grace, love, transform, self, awakening, and enlightenment

As far as inner transformation is concerned, there is nothing you can do about it. You cannot transform yourself, and you certainly cannot transform your partner or anybody else. All you can do is create a space for transformation to happen, for grace and love to enter.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on ego, identification, possessions, recognition, knowledge, education, and self

The most common ego identifications have to do with possessions, the work you do, social status and recognition, knowledge and education, physical appearance, special abilities, relationships, person and family history, belief systems, and often also political, nationalistic, racial, religious, and other collective identifications.

None of these is you.
