Living The Liberated Life Eckhart Tolle

In this world, there are a lot of things that are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you respond to whatever happens in your life. What I now know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So in case you think that you can do everything because you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe that you walk in the world, understanding that whatever issues you may experience, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and understanding of what God means grew with me, I expanded my view of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, to be a portion of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.

I call that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you in your pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You cannot survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. I’m not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You have to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not only your parents that wanted to have a child. The fact that that hag was struck by that particular little sperm in that particular moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to happen in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So when you understand the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I am here matters the fact that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your very best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being prepared to handle 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 did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for every individual, each and every thing that has 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 don’t understand your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you’re 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 that, the world speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. Or that does not make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just feels like that. It is that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you don’t focus on the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it’s 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 pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. 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’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for quite a long time that I am a lucky person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can not have all this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. How you measure up your game isn’t to be worried about the other guy in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. It takes energy away from you. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my team 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 guy. It is about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as you can. 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 distance. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will come back. It is true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It’s already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other people who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it’s like this all the time. It’s like this. It’s 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 in you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the celestial ness yourself, from the connection to source energy. That which created you is how out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you can align with this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you’re not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how frequently you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It’s just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re meant to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
