Eckhart Tolle: breathe to feel at ease

Eckhart Tolle

Here is a simple but very useful lesson from Eckhart Tolle about thinking, breathing and awareness.

Thinking is no more than a tiny aspect of the totality of consciousness, the totality of who you are.

Time is seen as the endless succession of moments, some “good”, some “bad”….

Yet, if you look more closely, that is to say, through your own immediate experience, you find that there are not many moments at all.

Most egos have conflicting wants. They want different things at different times or may not even know what they want…

…except that they don’t want what is: the present moment.

Be aware of your breathing. Notice how this takes attention away from your thinking and creates space.

Eckhart Tolle in conversation…

Eckhart Tolle’s meditative talks about “the eternal now” are wonderful and inspiring, but his conversations with other people can sometimes be more accessible and give yet another perspective. In these seven videos, Eckhart Tolle talks with Marianne Williamson, Neale Donald Walsch, Ram Dass, Bradley Horowitz, the Dalai Lama (with others), Ken Robinson and Oprah Winfrey. Really good stuff.

Eckhart Tolle: thoughts create the ego

Posted in Eckhart Tolle, The Spirit with tags , , , on March 3, 2011 by jason elijah

In this video, Eckhart Tolle is asked, “Is the ego the source of our thoughts or are our thoughts generated elsewhere and pass through the ego?”

He begins by saying, “There is no ego apart from thoughts. The identification with thoughts is ego. But the thoughts that go through your mind, of course, are linked to the collective mind of the culture you live in, humanity as a whole, so they are not your thoughts as such, but you pick most of them up from the collective (most of them). And so, you identify with thinking and the identification with thinking becomes ego, which means simply that you believe in every thought that arises and you derive your sense of who you are from what your mind is telling you who you are. Opinions, viewpoints, ‘that’s me.'”
