A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on enlightenment, mind, awakening, and consciousness

So the single most vital step on your journey toward enlightenment is this: learn to disidentify from your mind. Every time you create a gap in the stream of mind, the light of your consciousness grows stronger. One day you may catch yourself smiling at the voice in your head, as you would smile at the antics of a child. This means that you no longer take the content of your mind all that seriously, as your sense of self does not depend on it.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on enlightenment, thought, awakening, mind, and thinking

Enlightenment means rising above thought, not falling back to a level below thought, the level of an animal or a plant. In the enlightened state, you still use your thinking mind when needed, but in a much more focused and effective way than before.

A Quote by Adyashanti on mind, awareness, thought, and comprehension

The mind may accept or deny that you are awareness, but either way it can't really understand. It cannot comprehend. Thought cannot comprehend what is beyond thought.

Identification with your mind creates an opaque screen of concepts, labels, images, words, judgments, and definitions that blocks all true relationship.

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.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on mind, ego, time, identity, self, and enlightenment

To be identified with your mind is to be trapped in time: the compulsion to live almost exclusively through memory and anticipation.
