0102 The Purpose of This Book

0103 Our Inherited Dysfunction

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 12 124
fear, greed, and the desire for power are not the dysfunction that we are speaking of, but are themselves created by the dysfunction,

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 13 135
The history of Communism, originally inspired by noble ideals, clearly illustrates what happens when people attempt to change external reality— create a new earth— without any prior change in their inner reality, their state of consciousness. They

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 15 155
And so religions, to a large extent, became divisive rather than unifying forces. Instead of bringing about an ending of violence and hatred through a realization of the fundamental oneness of all life, they brought more violence and hatred, more div...

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 23 249
Everything, a bird, a tree, even a simple stone, and certainly a human being, is ultimately unknowable. This is because it has unfathomable depth. All we can perceive, experience, think about, is the surface layer of reality, less than the tip of an ...

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 26 269
The quicker you are in attaching verbal or mental labels to things, people, or situations, the more shallow and lifeless your reality becomes, and the more deadened you become to reality, the miracle of life that continuously unfolds within and around you.

0201 The Illusory Self

0202 The Voice in the Head

0203 Content and Structure of the Ego

0204 Identification with Things

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 35 363
The word "identification" is derived from the Latin word idem, meaning "same" and facere, which means "to make." So when I identify with something, I

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 35 363
I try to find myself in things but never quite make it and end up losing myself in them. That is the fate of the ego. IDENTIFICATION

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 37 383
Each thing has Beingness, is a temporary form that has its origin within the formless one Life, the source of all things, all bodies, all forms. In

0205 The Lost Ring

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 40 383
Whenever you completely accept a loss, you go beyond ego, and who you are, the I Am which is consciousness itself, emerges." She

0206 The Illusion of Ownership

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 45 466
The ego tends to equate having with Being: I have, therefore I am. And the more I have, the more I am. The

0207 Wanting: The Need for More I

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 46 476
And so the shallow satisfaction of having is always replaced by more wanting. This is the psychological need for more, that is to say, more things to identify with. It is an addictive need, not an authentic one. In

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 46 476
The physical needs for food, water, shelter, clothing, and basic comforts could be easily met for all humans on the planet, were it not for the imbalance of resources created by the insane and rapacious need for more, the greed of the ego. It finds c...

0208 Identification with the Body

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 51 496
Amazingly but not infrequently, the ego in search of a stronger identity can and does create illnesses in order to strengthen itself through them.

0209 Feeling the Inner Body

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 51 528
Although body-identification is one of the most basic forms of ego, the good news is that it is also the one that you can most easily go beyond.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 53 549
When you are in touch with the inner body, you are not identified with your body anymore, nor are you identified with your mind. This is to say, you are no longer identified with form but moving away from form-identification toward formlessness, whic...

0210 Forgetfulness of Being

0211 From Descartes’s Error to Sartre’s Insight

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 53 549
Descartes, regarded as the founder of modern philosophy, gave expression to this primary error with his famous dictum (which he saw as primary truth): "I think, therefore I am." This was the answer he found to the question ‘Is there anything I can kn...

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 60 621
In most cases, when you say "I", it is the ego speaking, not you, as we have seen. It consists of thought and emotion, of a bundle of memories you identify with as "me and my story," Page 60 - Note

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 60 621
"I" cannot survive without the conceptual "other." The others are most other when I see them as my enemies. At one end of the scale of this unconscious egoic pattern lies the egoic compulsive habit of faultfinding and complaining about others. Jesus ...

0301 Complaining and Resentment

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 62 621
Somebody becomes an enemy if you personalize the unconsciousness that is the ego. Nonreaction is not weakness but strength. Another word for nonreaction is forgiveness. To

0302 Reactivity and Grievances

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 65 673
This is an outrage," they say. "How dare you...." "I resent this." They are addicted to upset and anger as others are to a drug. Through reacting against this or that they assert and strengthen their feeling of self. A

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 65 673
A long-standing resentment is called a grievance. To carry a grievance is to be in a permanent state of "against," and that is why grievances constitute a significant part of many people's ego. Collective grievances can survive for centuries in the p...

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 66 684
Jesus' teaching to "Forgive your enemies" is essentially about the undoing of one of the main egoic structures in the human mind. The

0303 Being Right, Making Wrong

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 67 694
There is nothing that strengthens the ego more than being right. Being right is identification with a mental position— a perspective, an opinion, a judgment, a story. For

0304 In Defense of an Illusion

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 68 704
Ego takes everything personally. Emotion arises, defensiveness, perhaps even aggression. Are you defending the truth? No, the truth, in any case, needs no defense. The

0305 Truth: Relative or Absolute?

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 69 715
I am right and you are wrong" is a dangerous thing in personal relationships as well as in interactions between nations, tribes, religions, and so on. But

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 69 715
The history of Christianity is, of course, a prime example of how the belief that you are in sole possession of the truth, that is to say, right, can corrupt your actions and behavior to the point of insanity. For centuries, torturing and burning peo...

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 70 725
All religions are equally false and equally true, depending on how you use them. You can use them in the service of the ego, or you can use them in the service of the Truth. If

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 70 725
"Love and do what you will," said St. Augustine. Words cannot get much closer to the Truth than that.

0306 The Ego Is Not Personal

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 72 746
On a collective level, the mind-set it becomes obvious that the human ego in its collective aspect as "us" against 'them" is even more insane than the "me," the individual ego, although the mechanism is the same. By

recognition of the impermanence of all forms awakens you to the dimension of the formless within yourself, that which is beyond death. Jesus called it "eternal life." THE

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 81 839
The ego thrives on others' attention, which is after all a form of psychic energy. The ego doesn't know that the source of all energy is within you, so it seeks it outside.

Some of the greatest writers of the twentieth century, such as Franz Kafka, Albert Camus, T. S. Eliot, and James Joyce, recognized alienation as the universal dilemma of human existence, probably felt it deeply within themselves and so were able to e...

0501 The Birth of Emotion

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 132 1367
You don't run your body. The intelligence does. It also is in charge of the organism's responses to its environment. This

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 132 1367
For example , it is likely you won’t feel any emotion when you are told that someone’s car has been stolen, but when it is your car, you will probably feel upset. It is amazing how much emotion a little mental concept like “my” can generate.

0502 Emotions and the Ego

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 132 1367
Here are a few more common unconscious assumptions: “Nobody respects and appreciates me. I need to fight to survive. There is never enough money. Life always lets you down. I don’t deserve abundance . I don’t deserve love.”

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 132 1367
Do positive emotions then have the opposite effect on the physical body? Do they strengthen the immune system, invigorate and heal the body? They do, indeed , but we need to differentiate between positive emotions that are ego-generated and deeper emotions that emanate from your natural state of connectedness with Being.

0503 The Duck with a Human Mind

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 132 1367
Our duck's lesson is this: Flap your wings— which translates as "let go of the story"— and return to the only place of power: the present moment.

0504 Carrying the Past

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 132 1367
Because of the human tendency to perpetuate old emotion, almost everyone carries in his or her energy field an accumulation of old emotional pain, which I call 'the pain-body." We

0505 Individual and Collective

It is your conscious Presence that breaks the identification with the pain-body. When you don't identify with it, the pain-body can no longer control your thinking and so cannot renew itself anymore by feeding on your thoughts.

When you are seemingly diminished in some way and remain in absolute nonreaction, not just externally but also internally, you realize that nothing real has been diminished, that through becoming "less," you become more.

0801 Object Consciousness and Space Consciousness

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 227 2351
the history of humanity, which Winston Churchill defined as "one damn thing after another."

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 227 2351
The arising of space consciousness is the next stage in the evolution of humanity.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 228 2362
Space consciousness means that in addition to being conscious of things— which always comes down to sense perceptions, thoughts, and emotions— there is an undercurrent of awareness.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 228 2362
Space consciousness represents not only freedom from ego, but also from dependency on the things of this world, from materialism and materiality. It is the

0802 Falling Below and Rising Above Thought

0803 Television

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 230 2382
It has linked up with the TV version of the collective mind, and is thinking its thoughts. Your mind is inactive only in the sense that it is not producing thoughts.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 233 2382
Use the mute button during commercials. Make sure you don't go to sleep immediately after switching off the set or, even worse, fall asleep with the set still on.

0804 Recognizing Inner Space

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 234 2424
Jesus said, 'The kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed; nor will they say, 'Lo, here it is!' or There!' for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you." 3

0805 Can You Hear the Mountain Stream?

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 236 2424
Master suddenly spoke. "Do you hear the sound of that mountain stream?"

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 243 2517
Presence, the inner space in which the words on this page are perceived and become thoughts . It is the underlying I Am. The words you are reading and thinking are the foreground, and the I Am is the substratum, the underlying background to every exp...

0809 The Breath

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 245 2538
One conscious breath (two or three would be even better), taken many times a day, is an excellent way of bringing space into your life.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 245 2538
The German word for breathing— atmen—is derived from the ancient Indian (Sanskrit) word Atman, meaning the indwelling divine spirit or God within.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 246 2548
Being aware of your breath forces you into the present moment— the key to all inner transformation. Whenever you are conscious of the breath, you are absolutely present.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 246 2548
A long-standing compulsive behavior pattern may be called an addiction, and an addiction lives inside you as a quasientity or subpersonality, an energy field that periodically takes you over completely.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 246 2548
If you have a compulsive behavior pattern such as smoking, overeating, drinking, TV watching, Internet addiction, or whatever it may be, this is what you can do: When you notice the compulsive need arising in you, stop and take three conscious breath...

0810 Addictions

0811 Inner Body Awareness

0812 Inner and Outer Space

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 250 2590
Physicists have discovered that the apparent solidity of matter is an illusion created by our senses. This includes the physical body, which we perceive and think of as form, but 99.99 % of which is actually empty space.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 251 2600
That "empty space" is life in its fullness, the unmanifested Source out of which all manifestation flows. The traditional word for that Source is God.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 252 2610
it serves as an anchor for staying present in the Now. It prevents you from losing yourself in thinking, in emotions, or in external situations.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 251 2600
Through complete acceptance of the form of the Now, you become internally aligned with space , which is the essence of Now. Through acceptance, you become spacious inside. Aligned with space instead of form: That brings true perspective and balance i...

0813 Noticing the Gaps

0814 Lose Yourself to Find Yourself

0815 Stillness

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 251 2600
It has been said: "Stillness is the language God speaks, and everything else is a bad translation." Stillness is really another word for space.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 251 2600
When you are still, you are who you are beyond your temporal existence: consciousness—unconditioned, formless, eternal.

09 CHAPTER NINE Your Inner Purpose


0901 Awakening
0902 A Dialogue on Inner Purpose

FileTop o BookTop

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 258 2672
But the true or primary purpose of your life cannot be found on the outer level. It does not concern what you do but what you are— that is to say, your state of consciousness.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 258 2672
So the most important thing to realize is this : Your life has an inner purpose and an outer purpose. Inner purpose concerns Being and is primary.

0901 Awakening

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 260 2693
Another function of this book is to help people recognize the ego within them whenever it tries to regain control and obscure the arising awareness.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 260 2693
Opening yourself to the emerging consciousness and bringing its light into this world then becomes the primary purpose of your life.

0902 A Dialogue on Inner Purpose

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 269 2786
When you meet with people, at work or wherever it may be, give them your fullest attention. You are no longer there primarily as a person, but as a field of awareness, of alert Presence.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 269 2786
Can the whole use the human mind to create things or bring about situations that are in alignment with its purpose? Yes, whenever there is inspiration, which translates as "in spirit," and enthusiasm, which means "in God ," there is a creative empowe...

you have an inner and an outer purpose, and since you are a microcosmic reflection of the macrocosm, it follows that the universe too has an inner and outer purpose inseparable from yours.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 280 2900
reconciliation of outer and inner purpose: to bring that essence— consciousness— into the world of form and thereby transform the world. The ultimate purpose of that transformation goes far beyond anything the human mind can imagine or comprehend.

1001 A Brief History of Your Life

1002 Awakening and the Return Movement

1003 Awakening and the Outgoing Movement

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 289 2993
Stupidity is relatively harmless, but intelligent stupidity is highly dangerous. This intelligent stupidity, for which one could find countless obvious examples, is threatening our survival as a species.

1004 Consciousness

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 291 3014
Consciousness is the intelligence, the organizing principle behind the arising of form. Consciousness has been preparing forms for millions of years so that it can express itself through them in the manifested.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 293 3035
The brain does not create consciousness, but consciousness created the brain, the most complex physical form on earth, for its expression.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 293 3035
You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.

1005 The Three Modalities of Awakened Doing

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 293 3035
The modalities of awakened doing are acceptance, enjoyment, and enthusiasm.

1006 Acceptance

1007 Enjoyment

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 296 3066
Acceptance means: For now, this is what this situation, this moment, requires me to do, and so I do it willingly

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 297 3076
Enjoyment is the second modality of awakened doing.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 297 3076
On the new earth, enjoyment will replace wanting as the motivating power behind people's actions.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 297 3076
Joy is the dynamic aspect of Being.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 299 3097
The new earth arises as more and more people discover that their main purpose in life is to bring the light of consciousness into this world and so use whatever they do as a vehicle for consciousness. The joy of Being is the joy of being conscious.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 301 3118
Persian poet and Sufi master Hafiz expresses this truth beautifully: *1 am a hole in a flute that the Christ's breath moves through. Listen to this music."

1008 Enthusiasm

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 301 3118
Enthusiasm means there is deep enjoyment in what you do plus the added element of a goal or a vision that you work toward.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 302 3128
Ralph Waldo Emerson said that, "Nothing great has ever been achieved without enthusiasm."

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 302 3128
ancient Greek— en and theos, meaning God . And the related word enthousiazein means "to be possessed by a god."

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 303 3138
Enthusiasm and the ego cannot coexist. One implies the absence of the other.

1009 The Frequency-holders

1010 The New Earth Is No Utopia

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 308 3190
Awakening as a future event has no meaning because awakening is the realization of Presence. So the new heaven, the awakened consciousness, is not a future state to be achieved. A new heaven and a new earth are arising within you at this moment, and ...

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 303 3138
Enthusiasm and the ego cannot coexist. One implies the absence of the other.

Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth, 305 3159
Enthusiasm is the power that transfers the mental blueprint into the physical dimension. That is the creative use of mind, and that is why there is no wanting involved.

0101 The Greatest Obstacle to Enlightenment

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 16 284
Have you found the "off" button? You mean stop thinking altogether? No, I cant, except maybe for a moment or two. Then the mind is using you. You are unconsciously identified with it, so you don’t even know that you are its slave.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 17 298
You also realize that all the things that truly matter — beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace — arise from beyond the mind. You begin to awaken.

0102 Freeing Yourself from Your Mind

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 17 298
You have probably come across "mad" people in the street incessantly talking or muttering to themselves. Well, that's not much different from what you and all other "normal" people do, except that you don't do it out loud. The voice comments, specula...

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 18 311
The good news is that you can free yourself from your mind. This is the only true liberation.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 18 311
When you listen to that voice, listen to it impartially. That is to say, do not judge. Do not judge or condemn what you hear, for doing so would mean that the same voice has come in again through the back door.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 19 325
It is not a trancelike state. Not at all. There is no loss of consciousness here. The opposite is the case.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 20 339
consciousness away from mind activity and create a gap of no-mind in which you are highly alert and aware but not thinking. This is the essence of meditation.

0103 Enlightenment: Rising above Thought

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 22 367
about 80 to 90 percent of most people's thinking is not only repetitive and useless, but because of its dysfunctional and often negative nature, much of it is also harmful.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 23 380
I dont want to lose my ability to analyze and discriminate. I wouldn’t mind learning to think more clearly, in a more focused way, but I don't want to lose my mind. The gift of thought is the most precious thing we have. Without it, we would just be...

0104 Emotion: The Body’s Reaction to Your Mind

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 29 463
Glimpses of love and joy or brief moments of deep peace are possible whenever a gap occurs in the stream of thought. For most people, such gaps happen rarely and only accidentally, in moments when the mind is rendered "speechless," sometimes triggere...

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 30 477
Many "love" relationships, after the initial euphoria has passed, actually oscillate between "love" and hate, attraction and attack. Real love doesnt make you suffer.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 32 505
There are two levels to your pain: the pain that you create now, and the pain from the past that still lives on in your mind and body. Ceasing to create pain in the present and dissolving past pain — this is what I want to talk about now.

0301 Don’t Seek Your Self in the Mind

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 47 712
I feel that there is still a great deal I need to learn about the workings of my mind before I can get anywhere near full consciousness or spiritual enlightenment. No, you don’t. The problems of the mind cannot be solved on the level of the mind. One...

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 48 725
So once you recognize the root of unconsciousness as identification with the mind, which of course includes the emotions, you step out of it. You become present.

0302 End the Delusion of Time

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 48 725
Here is the key: End the delusion of time. Time and mind are inseparable. Remove time from the mind and it stops — unless you choose to use it.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 49 739
Time isn't precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 49 739
Why is it the most precious thing? Firstly, because it is the only thing. It's all there is. The eternal present is the space within which your whole life unfolds, the one factor that remains constant. Life is now. There was never a time when your li...

0303 Nothing Exists Outside the Now

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 50 753
Nothing ever happened in the past; it happened in the Now. Nothing will ever happen in the future; it will happen in the Now.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 50 753
When you remember the past, you reactivate a memory trace — and you do so now. The future is an imagined Now, a projection of the mind. When the future comes, it comes as the Now. When you think about the future, you do it now. Past and future obviou...

0304 The Key to the Spiritual Dimension

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 51 767
The reason why some people love to engage in dangerous activities, such as mountain climbing, car racing, and so on, although they may not be aware of it, is that it forces them into the Now — that intensely alive state that is free of time, free of...

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 52 781
'Take no thought for the morrow; for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself," or "Nobody who puts his hands to the plow and looks back is fit for the Kingdom of God." Or you might hear the passage about the beautiful flowers that are ...

0305 Accessing the Power of the Now

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 54 808
So break the old pattern of present-moment denial and present-moment resistance. Make it your practice to withdraw attention from past and future whenever they are not needed. Step out of the time dimension as much as possible in everyday life.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 56 836
This does not impair your ability to use time — past or future — when you need to refer to it for practical matters. Nor does it impair your ability to use your mind. In fact, it enhances it. When you do use your mind, it will be sharper, more focuse...

0306 Letting Go of Psychological Time

0307 The Insanity of Psychological Time

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 59 877
The end is an idea, a point in the mind-projected future, when salvation in whatever form — happiness, fulfillment, equality, liberation, and so on — will be attained. Not infrequently, the means of getting there are the enslavement, torture, and mur...

0308 Negativity and Suffering Have Their Roots in Time

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 62 919
There is no salvation in time. You cannot be free in the future. Presence is the key to freedom, so you can only be free now.

0309 Finding the Life Underneath Your Life Situation

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 63 932
Find the "narrow gate that leads to life." It is called the Now.

0310 All Problems Are Illusions of the Mind

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 66 974

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 81 1181
You have an idea in your mind that “everything is okay," but deep down you don't really believe it, and so the old mental-emotional patterns of resistance are still in place. That's what makes you feel bad.

0406 Wherever You Are, Be There Totally

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 84 1222
Die to the past every moment. You don't need it. Only refer to it when it is absolutely relevant to the present. Feel the power of this moment and the fullness of Being. Feel your presence.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 86 1250
With every kind of waiting, you unconsciously create inner conflict between your here and now, where you don't want to be, and the projected future, where you want to be.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 87 1264
Sorry to have kept you waiting," you can reply, 'That's all right, I wasn't waiting. I was just standing here enjoying myself — in joy in my self."

0407 The Inner Purpose of Your Life’s Journey

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 88 1277

Body awareness keeps you present. It anchors you in the Now (see chapter 6).

0502 The Esoteric Meaning of “Waiting”

0503 Beauty Arises in the Stillness of Your Presence

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 98 1415
Because we live in such a mind-dominated culture, most modern art, architecture, music, and literature are devoid of beauty, of inner essence, with very few exceptions.

0504 Realizing Pure Consciousness

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 98 1415
When you become conscious of Being, what is really happening is that Being becomes conscious of itself. When Being becomes conscious of itself — that's presence.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 102 1471
Egoic mind has become like a sinking ship. If you don't get off, you will go down with it. The collective egoic mind is the most dangerously insane and destructive entity ever to inhabit this planet.

0601 Being Is Your Deepest Self

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 109 1567
The reverse also applies: If, for whatever reason, you disliked the word honey, that might prevent you from ever tasting it.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 109 1567
If you dont like the word sin, then call it unconsciousness or insanity. That may get you closer to the truth, the reality behind the word, than a long-misused word like sin, and leaves little room for guilt.

Through the inner body, you are forever one with God.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 119 1705
just as the sun is infinitely brighter than a candle flame, there is infinitely more intelligence in Being than in your mind.

0608 Before You Enter the Body, Forgive

0609 Your Link with the Unmanifested

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 121 1733
Awareness of the inner body is consciousness remembering its origin and returning to the Source.

0610 Slowing Down the Aging Process

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 122 1746
Whereas the outer body normally appears to grow old and wither fairly quickly, the inner body does not change with time, except that you may feel it more deeply and become it more fully.

0611 Strengthening the Immune System

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 124 1774

0612 Let the Breath Take You into the Body

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 125 1788
Conscious breathing, which is a powerful meditation in its own right, will gradually put you in touch with the body.

0613 Creative Use of Mind

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 126 1802
In any thought activity, make it a habit to go back and forth every few minutes or so between thinking and an inner kind of listening, an inner stillness. We could say: dont just think with your head, think with your whole body.

You become a bridge between the Unmanifested and the manifested, between God and the world. This is the state of connectedness with the Source that we call enlightenment.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 133 1898
Jesus did not say: the truth will make you free, but rather: "You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 134 1912
Continuous mind activity keeps you imprisoned in the world of form and becomes an opaque screen that prevents you from becoming conscious of the

Unmanifested, conscious of the formless and timeless God-essence in yourself and in all things and all creatures.

I am giving you pointers to show you how you can bring the dimension of the Unmanifested into your life. We are not trying to understand it. There is nothing to understand.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 139 1981
Space and silence are two aspects of the same thing, the same no-thing. They are an externalization of inner space and inner silence, which is stillness: the infinitely creative womb of all existence.

0707 The True Nature of Space and Time

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 140 1995
Space is no-thing, so it was never created.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 142 2022
When space and time are realized within as the Unmanifested — no-mind and presence — external space and time continue to exist for you, but they become much less important. The world, too, continues to exist for you, but it will not bind you anymore.

0708 Conscious Death

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 142 2022
Apart from dreamless sleep, which I mentioned already, there is one other involuntary portal. It opens up briefly at the time of physical death. Even if you have missed all the other opportunities for spiritual realization during your lifetime, one I...

0801 Enter the Now from Wherever You Are

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 147 2091
You see time as the means to salvation, whereas in truth it is the greatest obstacle to salvation.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 147 2091
only one point of access: the Now. There can be no salvation away from this moment. You are lonely and without a partner? Enter the Now from there. You are in a relationship? Enter the Now from there.

0802 Love/ Hate Relationships

0803 Addiction and the Search for Wholeness

0804 From Addictive to Enlightened Relationships

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 154 2188
The greatest catalyst for change in a relationship is complete acceptance of your partner as he or she is, without needing to judge or change them in any way.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 154 2188
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.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 155 2202
Therefore, all love is the love of God.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 155 2202
The bond that connects you with that person is the same bond that connects you with the person sitting next to you on a bus, or with a bird, a tree, a flower. Only the degree of intensity with which it is felt differs.

0805 Relationships as Spiritual Practice

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 157 2229
However, every crisis represents not only danger but also opportunity.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 157 2229
long as you try to escape from them or wish that things were different, the window of opportunity does not open up, and you remain trapped inside that situation, which will remain the same or deteriorate further.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 158 2243
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.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 159 2257
Sanity — consciousness — can only come into this world through you. You do not need to wait for the world to become sane, or for somebody else to become conscious, before you can be enlightened. You may wait forever.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 160 2271
Give your partner space for expressing himself or herself.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 160 2271
Giving space to others — and to yourself — is vital. Love cannot flourish without it.

0806 Why Women Are Closer to Enlightenment

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 165 2340
God is a patriarchal, controlling authority figure, an often angry man who you should live in fear of, a

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 165 2340
The mind runs our civilization, whereas Being is in charge of all life on our planet and beyond. is the Old Testament suggests. This God is a projection of the human mind.

0807 Dissolving the Collective Female Pain-Body

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 168 2381
Of course, you also have to deal with the other obstacle to enlightenment, which is the thinking mind.

0901 The Higher Good beyond Good and Bad

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 178 2519
Seen from a higher perspective, conditions are always positive. To be more precise: they are neither positive nor negative. They are as they are.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 178 2519
there is no "good" or "bad” in your life anymore. There is only a higher good — which includes the "bad."

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 179 2533
What if it is a situation that I can do something about? How can I allow it to be and change it at the same time? Do what you have to do. In the meantime, accept what is.

0902 The End of Your Life Drama

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 181 2561
Whenever two or more egos come together, drama of one kind or another ensues.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 182 2574
Whenever you are not honoring the present moment by allowing it to be, you are creating drama.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 182 2574
An argument implies identification with your mind and a mental position, as well as resistance and reaction to the other person's position.

0903 Impermanence and the Cycles of Life

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 183 2588
Through allowing the "isness" of all things, a deeper dimension underneath the play of opposites reveals itself to you as an abiding presence, an unchanging deep stillness, an uncaused joy beyond good and bad. This is the joy of Being, the peace of G...

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 183 2588
There are cycles of success, when things come to you and thrive, and cycles of failure, when they wither or disintegrate and you have to let them go in order to make room for new things to arise, or for transformation to happen.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 183 2588
The down cycle is absolutely essential for spiritual realization.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 184 2602
In this world, which is to say on the level of form, everybody "fails" sooner or later, of course, and every achievement eventually comes to naught. All forms are impermanent.

0904 Using and Relinquishing Negativity

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 189 2671
The fact is, of course, that negativity does not work. Instead of attracting a desirable condition, it stops it from arising. Instead of dissolving an undesirable one, it keeps it in place. Its only "useful" function is that it strengthens the ego, and that is why the ego loves it.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 189 2671
Negativity is totally unnatural. It is a psychic pollutant, and there is a deep link between the poisoning and destruction of nature and the vast negativity that has accumulated in the collective human psyche.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 190 2685
Watch any plant or animal and let it teach you acceptance of what is, surrender to the Now. Let it teach you Being.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 191 2699
How do we stop negativity from arising, and how do we get rid of it once it is there? As I said, you stop it from arising by being fully present.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 193 2726
Offer no resistance. It is as if there is nobody there to get hurt anymore. That is forgiveness. In this way, you become invulnerable.

0905 The Nature of Compassion

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 197 2781
In compassion, the seemingly opposite feelings of sadness and joy merge into one and become transmuted into a deep inner peace. This is the peace of God.

0906 Toward a Different Order of Reality

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 202 2850
demonstrating the peace of God. You become the "light of the world/' an emanation of pure conscious the world.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 203 2864
Without a profound change in human consciousness, the world's suffering is a bottomless pit.

1001 Acceptance of the Now

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 205 2892
How do you reconcile surrender with changing things and getting things done? To some people, surrender may have negative connotations, implying defeat, giving up, failing to rise to the challenges of life, becoming lethargic, and so on.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 205 2892
Surrender is the simple but profound wisdom of yielding to rather than opposing the flow of life.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 209 2947
But I still cant quite see where the energy or motivation for taking action and bringing about change would come from if there isnt a certain amount of dissatisfaction. In the state of surrender, you see very clearly what needs to be done, and you ...

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 209 2947
Ask yourself, "Is there anything I can do to change the situation, improve it, or remove myself from it?" If so, you take appropriate action. Focus not on the one hundred things that you will or may have to do at some future time but on the one thing...

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 210 2961
Do not confuse surrender with an attitude of "I cant be bothered anymore" or "I just dont care anymore."

1002 From Mind Energy to Spiritual Energy

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 212 2988
Those who run on mind energy, which is still the vast majority of the Earth's population, remain unaware of the existence of spiritual energy. It belongs to a different order of reality and will create a different world when a sufficient number of hu...

1003 Surrender in Personal Relationships

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 212 2988
What about people who want to use me, manipulate or control me? Am I to surrender to them? They are cut off from Being, so they unconsciously attempt to get energy and power from you. It is true that oniy an unconscious person will try to use or mani...

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 213 3002
I am in a situation at work that is unpleasant. I have tried to surrender to it, but I find it impossible. A lot of resistance keeps coming up. If you cannot surrender, take action immediately: Speak up or do something to bring about a change in the...

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 216 3044
On the other hand, if action is required, you will no longer react from your conditioned mind, but you will respond to the situation out of your conscious presence. In that

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 216 3044
state, your mind is free of concepts, including the concept of non-violence. So who can predict what you will do?

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 216 3044
In surrender, you no longer need ego defenses and false masks.

1004 Transforming Illness into Enlightenment

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 217 3057
If you looked in the mirror and did not like what you saw, you would have to be mad to attack the image in the mirror.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 218 3071
Become an alchemist. Transmute base metal into gold, suffering into consciousness, disaster into enlightenment.

1005 When Disaster Strikes

1006 Transforming Suffering into Peace

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 221 3113
This means: Do not resist the pain. Allow it to be there. Surrender to the grief, despair, fear, loneliness, or whatever form the suffering takes. Witness it without labeling it mentally. Embrace it. Then see how the miracle of surrender transmutes d...

1007 The Way of the Cross

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 224 3154
They found God through surrender, through total acceptance of

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 224 3154
what is, into which they were forced by their intense suffering. They must have realized on some level that their pain was self-created.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 224 3154
life that you are? The word God is limiting not only because of thousands of years of misperception and misuse, but also because it implies an entity other than you.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 226 3182
Enlightenment consciously chosen means to relinquish your attachment to past and future and to make the Now the main focus of your life. It

1008 The Power to Choose

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 228 3209
How can you resent someone's illness? The only appropriate response is compassion.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 229 3223
The whole concept of forgiveness then becomes unnecessary.

Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now, 229 3223
Presence is the key. The Now is the key.

0101 1. THE BEGINNINGS OF PHILOSOPHY.

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 1 21
PHILOSOPHY.--The Greek historian Herodotus (484-424 B.C.) appears to have been the first to use the verb "to philosophize."

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 1 21
"philosopher" (etymologically, a lover of wisdom), a certain somewhat unreliable tradition traces it back to Pythagoras (about 582-500 B.C.). As told by Cicero,

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 1 21
At any rate, both the words "philosopher" and "philosophy" are freely used in the writings of the disciples of Socrates (470-399 B.C.), and it is possible that he was the first to make use of them.

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 2 107
Heraclitus, who was so impressed by the constant flux of things that he summed up his view of nature in the words: "Everything flows"; of Empedocles,

0102 2. THE GREEK PHILOSOPHY AT ITS HEIGHT.

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 4 201
Socrates, that greatest of teachers,

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 4 201
In the works of Socrates' disciple Plato (428-347 B.C.) and in those of Plato's disciple Aristotle (384-322 B.C.), abundant justice is done to these fields of human activity. These two, the greatest among the Greek philosophers, differ from each other in many things, but it is worthy of remark that they both seem to regard the whole sphere of human knowledge as their province.

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 4 201
As for Aristotle, that wonderful man seems to have found it possible to represent worthily every science known to his time, and to have marked out several new fields for his successors to cultivate. His philosophy covers physics, cosmology, zoölogy, logic, metaphysics, ethics, psychology, politics and economics, rhetoric and poetics.

0103 3. PHILOSOPHY AS A GUIDE TO LIFE.

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 5 201
Stoic emphasizes the necessity of living "according to nature," and dwells upon the character of the wise man; the Epicurean furnishes certain selfish maxims for getting through life as pleasantly as possible; the Skeptic counsels apathy, an indifference to all things,--blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall not be disappointed.

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 5 106
Stoic tells us of what the world consists; what was the beginning and what will be the end of things; what is the relation of the system of things to God. He

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 5 106
Epicurean informs us that the world originated in a rain of atoms through space; he examines into the foundations of human knowledge; and he proceeds to make himself comfortable in a world from which he has removed those disturbing elements, the gods...

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 5 106
Skeptic decides that there is no such thing as truth, before he enunciates the dogma that it is not worth while to worry about anything. The philosophy of each school includes a view of the system of things as a whole. The philosopher still regarded the universe of knowledge as his province.

0104 4. PHILOSOPHY IN THE MIDDLE AGES.

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 5 106
Neo-Platonism, that half Greek and half Oriental system of doctrine which arose in the third century after Christ, the first system of importance after the schools mentioned above. But I must not pass it by without pointing out that the Neo-Platonic ...

0105 5. THE MODERN PHILOSOPHY.

attention to Francis Bacon (1561-1626) and Rene Descartes (1596-1650), the two who are commonly regarded as heading the list of the modern philosophers, we find both of them assigning to the philosopher an almost unlimited field.

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 7 149
knowledge has not wholly passed away even in our day. I shall not dwell upon Spinoza (1632-1677), who believed it possible to deduce a world a priori with mathematical precision; upon Christian Wolff (1679-1754), who defined philosophy as the knowledge of the causes of what is or comes into being; upon Fichte (1762-1814), who believed that the philosopher, by mere thinking, could lay down the laws of all possible future experience; upon Schelling (1775-1854), who, without knowing anything worth mentioning about natural science, had the courage to develop a system of natural philosophy, and to condemn such investigators as Boyle and Newton;

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 7 149
Hegel (1770-1831), who undertakes to construct the whole system of reality out of concepts, and who, with his immediate predecessors, brought philosophy for a while into more or less disrepute with men of a scientific turn of mind. I shall come down come down quite to our own times, and consider a man whose conception of philosophy has had and still has a good deal of influence, especially with the general public--with those to whom philosophy is a thing to be taken up in moments of leisure, and cannot be the serious pursuit of a life.

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 7 201
partially-unified knowledge; Philosophy is completely-unified knowledge." [1] Science, he argues, means merely the family of the Sciences-stands for nothing more than the sum of knowledge formed of their contributions.

0106 6. WHAT PHILOSOPHY MEANS IN OUR TIME.

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 7 206
It savors of temerity to write down such a title as that which heads the present section. There are men living to-day to whom philosophy means little else than the doctrine of Kant, or of Hegel, or of the brothers Caird, or of Herbert Spencer, or even of St. Thomas Aquinas, for we must not forget that many of the seminaries of learning in Europe and some in America still hold to the mediaeval church philosophy.

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 9 191
dose relation between philosophy and religion.

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 10 266
philosophy was once a synonym for the whole sum of the sciences or what stood for such; gradually the several sciences have become independent and the field of the philosopher has been circumscribed. We must admit, moreover, that there is to be found in a number of the special sciences a body of accepted facts which is without its analogue in philosophy.

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 132 2802
Spinoza modified Descartes' doctrine in that he refused to regard mind and matter as substances at all. He made them unequivocally attributes of the one and only substance, which he called God.

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 135 2866
with Spinoza, call the one Substance God; that is, he may be a Pantheist. On the other hand, he may, with Spencer, call it the Unknowable, and be an Agnostic. Other shades of opinion are open to him, if he cares to choose them.

0305 58. DUALISM.

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 135 2866
stands out one broad distinction, that of the physical and the mental.

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 135 2866
man who has done no reading in the philosophers is scarcely tempted to obliterate; to him the world consists of two kinds of things widely different from each other; minds are not material things and material things are not minds. We

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 136 2887
Pluralism, a word which is meant to cover the various doctrines which maintain that there is more than one ultimate principle or being in the universe.

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 137 2908
Empedocles (born about 490 B.C.). This thinker made earth, water, fire, and air the four material principles or "roots” of things. He was not a monist, and we can certainly not call him a dualist.

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 139 2951
Thus, he proves the existence of God by the following argument:- I exist, and I find if its cause must be as great as the reality it repres...-this idea I cannot be the author, for it represents something much greater than I, and

61. EMPIRICISM.

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 140 2972
Locke, in his "Essay concerning Human Understanding,” undertakes "to inquire into the original, certainty, and extent of human knowledge, together with the grounds and degrees of belief, opinion, and assent."

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 140 2972
The first book of the "Essay" is devoted to the proof that there are in the mind of man no "innate ideas" and no "innate principles." That is to say, Locke tries to show that one must not seek, in the "natural light" to which Descartes turned, a distinct and independent source of information,

0402 62. CRITICISM.

Fullerton George Stuart: An Introduction to Philosophy, 141 2993
Hume seemed to have shown, empiricism must run out into skepticism. If all our knowledge has its foundations in experience, how can we expect to find in our possession any universal or necessary truths? May not a later experience contradict an earlier? How can we be sure that what has been will be? Can we know that there is anything fixed and certain in our world?

Los periodicos escribieron despues de su concierto que ningun pianista habi'a tocado tan artisticamente las Variaciones Goldberg, asf pues, escribieron despues de su concierto de Salzburgo lo que nosotros habiamos afirmado y sabido dos anos antes.

Glenn no amaba a ningun otro compositor mas que a Bach, y en segundo lugar a Handel, a Beethoven lo despreciaba,

Estuvimos dos semanas y media en casa de Glenn, en donde el se habfa arreglado un estudio. Lo mismo que durante el curso con Horowitz en Salzburgo, tocaba el piano m£s o menos dia y noche. Durante anos, durante un decenio. He dado treinta y cuatro co...

Nueva York es la unica ciudad del mundo en que un hombre de espiritu respira sin trabas en cuanto la pisa.

Bernhard Thomas: El Malogrado, 20 339
No era Glenn el mas dificil de nosotros, lo era Wertheimer. Glenn era fuerte, Wertheimer era el mds debil de nosotros. Glenn no estaba loco, como una y otra vez se ha afirmado y se afirma, sino que lo estaba Wertheimer, como afirmo yo.

Bernhard Thomas: El Malogrado, 21 368
Nuestro amigo signified nuestra muerte. La verdad es que eramos mejores que todos los demas que estudiaban con Horowitz, pero Glenn era mejor que el propio Horowitz, dea'a Wertheimer,

Glenn no leia casi nada, aborrecia la literatura, lo que era muy propio de el.

Bernhard Thomas: El Malogrado, 28 479
En el fondo, ya en el primer instante de mi encuentro con Glenn en el MOnchsberg me resulto claro que se trataba del hombre mas extraordinario que habia encontrado jamas en mi vida.

Wertheimer fue siempre un candidato al suicidio, pero se paso de la cuenta, hubiera debido matarse anos antes de su suicidio real, mucho antes de Glenn, pense.

Pero reprimi con vehemencia el pensamiento de cualquier culpa por mi parte en su suicidio, yo no le hubiera servido ya de nada, me dije, no hubiera podido salvarlo, al fin y al cabo estaba ya maduro para el suicidio. ;Tuvo que ser la escuela superior...

Bernhard Thomas: El Malogrado, 39 687
Al principio habia pensado yo que, en alguna visita a su hermana, el habia muerto. Una visita asf, como es natural, me habi'a admirado, porque no habia podido imaginarme una visita asf. Wertheimer no habria visitado jamas a su hermana en Zizers, pens...

solo cuando Glenn habfa dejado de tocar se sento Wertheimer, tenia los ojos cerrados, todavia lo veo muy bien, pense, y no hablaba ya. Dicho de forma patetica, aquello fue el fin, el fin de la carrera virtuosa de Wertheimer.

Wertheimer es un buen ejemplo de ello, muchos anos aun despues de haber sido aniquilado por Glenn, no habia renunciado, pense.

Bernhard Thomas: El Malogrado, 58 1029
Wertheimer era totalmente opuesta a la naturaleza de Glenn, pense, 6I tenia lo que se llama una comprension artistica. Glenn Gould no la necesitaba.

Bernhard Thomas: El Malogrado, 58 1033
Glenn no conocia siquiera el concepto de disculpa, Glenn no se disculpaba jameis,

Bernhard Thomas: El Malogrado, 58 1034
Wertheimer era siempre importante saber lo que la gente pensaba de £l, Glenn no daba a eso el menor valor,
