Enlightenment is in the now – Eckhart Tolle

“Spiritual seekers look for self-realization or enlightenment in the future. To be a seeker implies that you need the future.

Pain and suffering, quote, inspiration.

“Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional” is one of my favorite quotes. Physical or emotional pain – you can choose how you deal with that pain.

Presence

Don’t underestimate the power that is in presence. Even if seemingly nothing much is happening yet, there’s enormous power that comes through you and flows into this world.

Eckhart Tolle on present moment

Instead of creating expectations of what should or should not be happening, cooperate with the form that this moment takes.

The wise woman, the wise man has nothing that you don’t have. She or he is simply aware of the dimension of stillness, the dimension of no thought out of which all wisdom comes, and that which is also in you.

Aware consciousness

Wherever you may be, ask yourself: Are you there as the carrier of your personal history plus your problematic future? Or are you there as aware consciousness, the field of conscious presence looking, perceiving the aliveness, sensing the aliveness that is all around you, even in stones? There’s always a choice. – Eckhart Tolle


Now, present moment

Very few human beings are actually where they are, rooted in the presence of now. They are continuously reaching out for more. They’re being pulled out of now, which is all there ever is-life itself. Nothing else ever exists except now. – Eckhart Tolle


Robert Aitken on Spiritual growth

Personal Growth and Dharma Growth It is interesting to compare personal growth with Dharma growth. With good advice the young person knows that she can’t predict what kind of career she will follow as an adult. People train to be engineers and turn out to be teachers of English. With good advice the Zen student… Continue Reading

Take responsibility for your state of consciousness Now. This is what the entire teaching really is about. What is my state of consciousness in this moment? – Eckhart Tolle

The challenge that many people are encountering at this time is actually that which will push them into a new state of consciousness; that is the possibility-the promise whenever you encounter a crisis, whether personal or collective.
