“Spiritual seekers look for self-realization or enlightenment in the future. To be a seeker implies that you need the future. If this is what you believe, it becomes true for you: you will need time until you realize that you don't need time to be who you are.”



Eckhart Tolle

The best indicator of your level of consciousness is how you deal with life's challenges when they come. Through those challenges, an already unconscious person tends to become more deeply unconscious, and a conscious person more intensely conscious. You can use a challenge to awaken you, or you can allow it to pull you into even deeper sleep.”



Eckhart Tolle

Through the present moment you have access to the power of Life itself. ~ Eckhart Tolle, the power of life is What we know as God.

“If your mind carries a heavy burden of past, you will experience more of the same. The past perpetuates itself through lack of presence. The quality of your consciousness at this moment is what shapes the future.”



Eckhart Tolle


So if you are complaining about the situation that you are in the present moment bring your awareness to how much your energy is driven by what happened in the past, unforgiveness, grievances, anger, resentment, are from the past. We have to heal ourselves from this, which is found through awareness of this moment the Now, the Now is Perfect. Or bringing our presence to the negative emotion and it dissolves. Being aware of the fact that we are aware.

No matter how many workshops you have attended no matter how many scriptures you have read how many books you have read, how many teachers you have seen, how many meditation retreats you have been if stillness is not there in your daily life or only confined to a formal meditation practice then the spiritual dimension is not there in your life no matter how much you talk about it. And there are many people who have read many scriptures extremely knowledgeable can quote any spiritual teacher that lived or philosopher that lived 10 or thousand years ago there is no stillness there is just stuff of the mind they have collected signposts. Because any spiritual teaching tells you is a signpost and so some people become a collectors of signposts, they never go where the signpost points they say that is an interesting signpost, let's compare this signpost to that one, do they point to the same place, well I don't know what do you think professor, well let's look at a third one this one seems to point in that direction, well let's look more closely and analyze the signpost lets get a microscope and cut it, okay I think I am going to write a book about that, you can spend your whole life and think you are very spiritual and the world tells you that you are the professor of divinity, that's what it's called you get a PhD in divinity, wow! Or you are a Pundit in India with a long beard and full of knowledge. ~excerpts from Eckhart Tolle's talk on Krishnamurthi. Loved his analogy of signposts.
