    Accessing the Dimension Beyond Thought

    Accessing the Dimension Beyond Thought

    Eckhart explains why our goal is to learn to access the transcendent part of ourselves which is beyond thinking. Most people have no connection to this state until some crisis pushes them to dig deeper. Eckhart says we must find spaces of awareness between thoughts which will eventually lead us to a state of being that is connected to the soul of the universe.

    Real Change Begins with Our State of Consciousness

    Real Change Begins with Our State of Consciousness

    Eckhart says the most important things we can do is transform our state of consciousness, realize our connection to the source and let go of our self-imposed limitations. He compares the transcendent realm to the sun. We are like a ray from that source, shining into this world. Eckhart believes everyone on the planet is a brief flicker of consciousness… here for a short time; but connected to the eternal.

    Know Thyself: Remembering Who We Are

    Know Thyself: Remembering Who We Are

    Eckhart quotes ancient Greek philosopher, Pythagorus who said, “Know thyself.” Eckhart says unfortunately our educational system is geared toward only one kind of knowledge: the intellectual. He explains how there is another knowledge based on wisdom and intuition. It’s that kind of inner-knowing he says we must embrace, not as a replacement for intellectual knowledge but as a much-needed addition.

    Rising Above Life’s Challenges

    Rising Above Life’s Challenges

    Eckhart asks, “When life’s challenges strike, how do we respond?” He questions do we rise above worn-out patterns with new awareness or do we spiral into the old unconsciousness. He says we shouldn’t blame ourselves when we relapse. Suffering and setbacks are a necessary and vital part of awakening.

    Growing Up and Waking Up

    Growing Up and Waking Up

    Eckhart discusses the path to awakening. He says there are two stages to a person’s life: waking up and growing up.  Many start to awaken, only to later discover large parts of their personality lag behind; they haven’t really grown up. To reach maturity Eckhart says spiritual practice must encompass all of who we are and become an integral part of our daily lives.

    Liberation from the Mind

    Liberation from the Mind

    Eckhart says the beginning of liberation is when you realize you are not the thinker. He says many people derive their identity from what the mind tells them. For those who have not yet awakened that is where they find their sense of self. We free ourselves when we begin to realize there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought and that the things which truly matter like joy, love and inner peace arise beyond the mind.

Listening to these over and over

The wisdom! Everything Eckart says is blowing my mind. I’m going through a tough time and these teachings are enabling me to get through everything with grace, kindness and peace. The way I live is completely changing and I am experiencing much more peace and far less anxiety. Genuinely life changing. Thank you Eckart Tolle.

Transformative!!

As I grow and learn, only in hindsight do I see how far I’ve come and all the mistakes I’ve made along the way. This is the most fundamental and essential teaching I’ve yet come across and perhaps, will ever come across in my life. I am grateful for finding this and having the awareness to be open to its teachings. Hoping this can reach far and wide audience.
