Eckhart Tolle

Forget about your life situation and pay attention to your life. Your life situation exists in time. Your life is now. Your life situation is mind-stuff.

Eckhart Tolle

When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation or accept it. All else is madness.

Eckhart Tolle

If you are in the habit of creating suffering for yourself, then you are probably creating suffering for others too.

Eckhart Tolle

Every being is a spark of the Divine, or God. Look into the eyes of the dog and sense that innermost core. When you are present, you can sense the spirit, the one consciousness, in every creature and love it as yourself.

Eckhart Tolle
How wonderful to go beyond wanting and fearing in your relationships. Love does not want or fear anything. - Eckhart Tolle

How wonderful to go beyond wanting and fearing in your relationships. Love does not want or fear anything.

Eckhart Tolle

What is commonly called 'falling in love' is in most cases an intensification of egoic wanting and needing. You become addicted to another person, or rather to your image of that person. It has nothing to do with true love, which contains no wanting whatsoever.

Eckhart Tolle

Forget about your life situation and pay attention to your life. Your life situation exists in time. Your life is now. Your life situation is mind-stuff. Your life is real. Instead of asking 'what do I want from life?' a more powerful question is, 'what does life want from me?'

All the things that truly matter, beauty, love, creativity, joy and inner peace arise from beyond the mind. - Eckhart Tolle

All the things that truly matter, beauty, love, creativity, joy and inner peace arise from beyond the mind.

Eckhart Tolle

At the deepest level, an 'open heart' is spacious presence, in which the sense of separateness between yourself and the 'other' dissolves and there is the recognition of oneness, of shared consciousness. That recognition is love. Sensing the formless essence in another and recognizing it as one with your own essence - that's what love is. All this is an intrinsic part of the awakened consciousness and the revelation of the spiritual dimension of life.

Eckhart Tolle
All you can do is create a space for transformation to happen, for grace and love to enter. - Eckhart Tolle

Eckhart Tolle

Love is a state of Being. Your love is not outside; it is deep within you. You can never lose it, and it cannot leave you. It is not dependent on some other body, some external form.

Eckhart Tolle
Just as the dog loves to chew bones, the human mind loves its problems. - Eckhart Tolle

Love is the recognition of oneness in the world of duality. - Eckhart Tolle

Love is the recognition of oneness in the world of duality.

Eckhart Tolle

Once there is a certain degree of Presence, of still and alert attention in human beings' perceptions, they can sense the divine life essence, the one indwelling consciousness or spirit in every creature, every life-form, recognize it as one with their own essence and so love it as themselves. Until this happens, however, most humans see only the outer forms, unaware of the inner essence, just as they are unaware of their own essence and identify only with their own physical and psychological form.

Most people don't know how to listen because the major part of their attention is taken up by thinking. They pay more attention to that than to what the other person is saying, and none at all to what really matters: the Being of the other person underneath the words and the mind. Of course, you cannot feel someone else's Being except through your own. This is the beginning of the realization of oneness, which is love. At the deepest level of Being, you are one with all that is.

Eckhart Tolle

Stop looking outside for scraps of pleasure or fulfillment, for validation, security, or love - you have a treasure within that is infinitely greater than anything the world can offer.

Eckhart Tolle

So love is the recognition of oneness in a world of duality. This is the birth of God into the world of form. Love makes the world less worldly, less dense, more transparent to the divine dimension, the light of consciousness itself.

To love is to recognize yourself in another.

Eckhart Tolle

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.

Eckhart Tolle

Whenever there is inspiration and enthusiasm there is a creative empowerment that goes far beyond what a mere person is capable of.
