List Of Eckhart Tolle’s Writings

In this world, there are a whole lot of things that are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you react to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So if you believe that you can do everything because you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk in the world, knowing that whatever issues you may experience, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and comprehension of what God means grew with me, I expanded my perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the world, to be a part of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things. And so my confidence comes from knowing that there’s something greater than myself, that I am a part of and is also a part of me.

I call that God, but I do nothing without that, knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding that puts you in your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not just your parents who wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to happen in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I’m here matters that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. People notice when you do your very best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best places you at the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. There is no luck without you being ready to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that due to my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for every person, each and every thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you do not understand your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you’re supposed to be doing. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just feels like that. It is that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you don’t pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it is like getting bumped upside the head.

You do not pay attention to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. When you’re no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. I’m interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve known for a very long time I am a blessed person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can not have all of this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step up our game. How you measure up your game is not to be worried about the other man in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to return and see where the other guys are. It takes energy away from you. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my group all the time. Don’t waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as possible. You need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is that you have to take responsibility for the space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I meanI understand that every thought that I feel every thought that I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will come back. It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it’s like this all the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the middle of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness of yourself, from the link to source energy. What created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you’re able to align with this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you’re not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. How many times you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is who you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
