Be present as the watcher of your mind, of your thoughts and emotions as well as your reactions in various situations. Be at least as interested in Your reactions as in the situation or person that causes You to react.. ~ Eckhart Tolle



“The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not “the thinker.” The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. 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.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

Death is not the opposite of life. Life has no opposite. The opposite of death is birth. Life is eternal. Death is stripping away all that is not you. The secret of life is to “die before you die” — and find that there is no death. “Awareness is the power that is concealed within the present moment. … The ultimate purpose of human existence, which is to say, your purpose, is to bring that power into this world.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
