5 beautiful life lessons from Eckhart Tolle about Living in clear consciousness
“If you really experience the present moment, what I call presence, there is the new consciousness that is now emerging on the planet. It is an incredible insight that your whole life consists of now. It takes place in the now. Every life experience, self memories, and future projection takes place in the now. It is always now.”
“The ego makes us think that sensory pleasure is a prerequisite for happiness. But the more you look for that, the more you get the feeling that it doesn’t work. You are not in touch with the now”.
Make this your most important spiritual practice: that you constantly interrupt daily life by the moment of presence. When thought disappears and only pure perception remains.”
“A dream needs a consciousness in which the dream takes place. Without consciousness, there would be no dream. There is one thing in your life that you can be absolutely sure of and that is the basis of everything: that you are aware of yourself.”
