Eckhart Tolle - Living in the present moment
Eckhart Tolle is everywhere.
Thanks to Oprah. You can read his book A New Earth and watch the live webcast of Eckhart Tolle and Oprah explaining chapter by chapter. It's amazing!
It will leave you feeling inspired and motivated to change your life today.
Eckhart is truly a spiritual leader.
I am in awe of his ability to be so peaceful after being suicidal at one point in his life.
When he was thirty he was on the verge of committing suicide.
But thankfully he awakened one morning fully aware of his egoic mind and changed his life forever.
From suicide to spiritual leader...
I have read The Power of Now and A New Earth.
I highly recommend them both.
However, I would start with The Power of Now because it helps you understand what being present is all about.
It also explains the ego. The voice inside your head.
Once you've read that I would read A New Earth and watch the webcast on Oprah for a more indept explanation of this new way of living.
It will change your life if you're ready for it.
Eckhart Tolle is so down to Earth, it's almost heavenly. He resonates with spirituality. I would love to be LIKE him in every respect. He's so calm.
Just listening to him makes you instantly feel calmer inside.
Eckhart explains his book so well that I laughed, cried and was over joyed when I watched the videos on Oprah while reading A New Earth. He will make you think about your thoughts and how they currently effect your life. And how your ego plays a big part of your life if you let it. Good or bad.
Eckhart Tolle will explain why your thoughts are not you. And how you can overcome them just by being aware of them.
It sounds very simple but just try to be aware of every thought that pops into your head for one whole day.
It's a lot of thinking. It's been said that we think 5000 thoughts during any giving day.
In addition to his books, he also has some great advice on his page on Oprah's website. He gives you exercises to do as you read every chapter.
General exercises to help you become more present. As well as audio meditations to guide you into relaxation.
I am currently reading A New Earth for a second time and doing the chapter exercises at the same time. The experience is truly life altering.
Eckhart Tolle will have you paying attention to every word being spoke in your head and for good reason too. Most of those thoughts are negative.
We human beings are constantly looking at the negative side of things instead of the positive.
Then we go over and over and over all the negative thoughts and images all day long inside our heads; which only causes more negativity. We do all this without even realizing it.
If you wake up to the thoughts that are causing your to feel crappy and negative you can start to change it.
Just by acknowledging that you have a voice talking to you inside your head is a good first step.
Some people will read this and say to themselves, "I don't have a voice in my head, do I?"
Yes you do, we all do. The voice may sound like yourself taking but it's not really who you are. It's your ego talking.
Making you unhappy, fearful, anxious, scared, disorganized, unfocused.
Get control of you inter dialogue and you can start living a life of control and conviction.
