Eckhart Tolle “A New Earth”

The aim of this blog is to give you ideas, tips and strategies to enjoy your job, and your life. Eckhart Tolle’s book “A New Earth” contains wisdom that can be useful for you in these areas. In thinking more, and being increasingly aware of ourselves, we can change our lives now and for the future. Here are some key excerpts from the book.

  • “Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is experience you are having at the moment.
  • The quote above leads into another favourite author of mine, Joe Vitale “Once you have learnt the lesson, you no longer need the experience.” If you want to move on from your current place, then learn your lesson first.
  • “Unease, restlessness, boredom, anxiety, dissatisfaction, are the result of unfulfilled wanting.” Happiness is contentment with what we have because there will always be more we want. Be grateful for what you have right now.
  • “Awareness is the greatest agent for change.” If you know the problem you want to fix, you can fix it. Be specific about what you want to change. There is no point just saying “I want to be happy” or
    “I want to be rich”.
  • “One of the ego’s erroneous assumptions is ‘I should not have to suffer’. Suffering has a noble purpose: the evolution of consciousness and the burning up of ego.” Look around you – no one is without suffering. Again, learn your lessons from it and find happiness where you can.
  • “Being present is more powerful than saying or doing.” Satori = moment of presence; a brief stepping out of the voice in your head, the thought processes and their reflection in the body as emotion”.
  • Feel whatever you are feeling now. Allow now. Be fully present in this moment and accept that this is you, and this is your life.
  • “Whatever you think people are withholding from you, give it to them first. Act as if you have it, and it will come.”
  • “The source of all abundance is not outside you. It is part of who you are. See the fulness of life all around you. The acknowledgement of this awakens the dormant abundance within. Abundance comes to those who already have it.”
  • “There is not only growth, birth, success, good health, pleasure and winning. There is also loss, failure, sickness, old age, decay, pain and death. Disorder erupts into everyone’s lives.” But these too are part of life, the shadow side we must also embrace and learn from. It would not be a fulness of life without them.
  • This too will pass. “Be aware of the intransience of form – inevitability of change – enjoy the pleasures of the world while they last.”
  • Be aware of your breathing as often as you are able, whenever you remember. Being aware of breathing takes attention away from thinking and creates space. One conscious breath makes space in the succession of thoughts.”
  • “When you are comfortable with uncertainty, infinite possibilities open up in your life.”
  • “Whatever you cannot enjoy doing, you can at least accept that this is what you have to do. Acceptance means – for now, for this, the moment requires this, and I do it willingly.”
