A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on eckhart tolle, power of now, enlightenment, and consciousness

So the single most vital step on your journey toward enlightenment is this: learn to disidentify with your mind. Every time you create a gap in the stream of mind the light of your consciousness grows stronger.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on god, being, eckhart tolle, power of now, and neitzche

The word God has become empty of meaning through thousands of years of misuse. I use it sometimes, but I do so sparingly. By misuse, I mean that people who have never even glimpsed at the realm of the sacred, the infinite vastness behind that word, use it with great conviction, as if they knew what they are talking about. Or, they argue against it, as if they knew what it is that they are denying. This misuse gives rise to absurd beliefs, assertions, and egoic delusions, such as "My or our God is the only true God, and your God is false," or Neitzche's famous statement "God is dead."

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on thinking, being, and stillness

Not to be able to stop thinking is a dreadful affliction, but we don't realize this because almost everyone is suffering from it, so it is considered normal.  This incessant mental noise prevents you from finding that realm of inner stillness that is inseparable from Being.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle

'What a liberation to realize that the "voice in my head" is not who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that.'

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on attention and the now

Direct your attention inward. Have a look inside yourself. What kind of thoughts is your mind producing? What do you feel? Direct your attention into the body. Is there any tension? Once you detect that there is a low level of unease, the background static, see in what way you are avoiding, resisting, or denying life—by denying the Now.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on voice in my head

What a liberation to realize that the "voice in my head" is not who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on choice, freedom, and consciousness

Choice implies consciousness - a high degree of consciousness. Without it, you have no choice. Choice begins the moment you disidentify from the mind and its conditioned patterns, the moment you become present....Nobody chooses dysfunction, conflict, pain. Nobody chooses insanity. They happen because there is not enough presence in you to dissolve the past, not enough light to dispel the darkness. You are not fully here. You have not quite woken up yet. In the meantime, the conditioned mind is running your life.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on pain-body and identity

The pain-body wants to survive, just like every other entity in existence, and it can only survive if it gets you to unconsciously identify with it.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on insanity, mind, and observe

You don't need to condemn. Just observe, That is sin. That is insanity. That is unconsciousness. Above all, don't forget to observe your own mind. Seek out the root of the insanity there.
