    The Unobserved Mind Leads to Suffering

    The Unobserved Mind Leads to Suffering

    In this episode Eckhart talks to an audience in New York City. He reminds them of life’s fleeting nature and that in eighty or ninety years the names of the people lit up by the bright lights of Broadway will be gone. Success, fame and fortune do not provide immunity from what Eckhart calls the burden of self… the identity we fabricate from our problems…including health, careers, finances and relationships. Eckhart explains that the greatest source of suffering is not just created by the mind…but by our unobserved thoughts. They drift in and out of our awareness and we believe them without question. Over time, we weave them into a sad story called my life and we become victim to these narratives. Eckhart explains that we cannot go through life without challenges. He explains even if we are awakened spiritually, difficulties will continue. However, the difference is that we will no longer turn adversity into suffering. We have the awareness to liberate ourselves from the shackles of our thinking.

    The Evolutionary Journey Still Ahead

    The Evolutionary Journey Still Ahead

    In this episode, Eckhart talks about how far we have yet to go in our spiritual growth. He says what’s critical is that we transcend our thinking because it’s absolutely necessary for our survival. He says the dysfunction of the ego dates back thousands of years. Eckhart explains we need only look at history for evidence: creating enemies, war and endless cycles of violence. He says the same aberration still exists today. Yet, science and technology have amplified it so greatly that the collapse of civilization and worldwide destruction are imminently possible. Eckhart believes we are in crisis and in order to make a shift we must evolve beyond our current state of consciousness. He says when a critical number of people connect more consistently with their transcendent selves, an entirely new world will be born which Eckhart calls A New Earth. He says that is our destiny and the secret to all life.

    We Are Not Fully Human Yet

    We Are Not Fully Human Yet

    In this podcast, Eckhart talks about the spiritual evolution of humanity. He says our development is far from finished. In fact, he says it coincides with the transformation of all life on Earth. Collectively, we are on the way to awakening, but we haven’t arrived yet. Eckhart asks: what does it mean to be awake? In spiritual terms, he says it’s reaching that deeper dimension of ourselves that is higher than thinking. He believes it’s the secret behind all spiritual teachings. Both Buddha and Jesus described this state of heightened awareness. Eckhart says we will find it when we relinquish our so-called normal state of consciousness which he describes as a relentless stream of compulsive thinking.

    Eckhart Tolle Special: Healing Fear Through Difficult Times

    Eckhart Tolle Special: Healing Fear Through Difficult Times

    Original Air Date: May 21, 2021
    Eckhart Tolle answers questions about how to deal with our fears, especially when confronted with a crisis. He says we can’t take intelligent action when we’re gripped with anxiety. When the world threatens to overwhelm us, what’s needed is wisdom, looking at the totality of the situation, not just one aspect of the problem. Eckhart says we must free ourselves of the negative thinking that accompanies fear and align ourselves with the vertical or transcendent dimension. That is where we will find our answers.

    Eckhart Tolle Special: Finding Death Before Death Finds You

    Eckhart Tolle Special: Finding Death Before Death Finds You

    Original Air Date: May 21, 2021
    Eckhart Tolle delves into a topic that is taboo for many of us…and that is the subject of Death. In the Western world, Eckhart says denial and the fear of death has prevailed for centuries. However, due to the pandemic, collectively we’ve been forced to confront death on a scale we haven’t seen since the last century. Eckhart says Death has much to teach us. And he also gives us hope. There is more to the larger workings of the Universe than is visible to the eye. He says there is a much deeper dimension to who we are…one that never dies. If we can get in touch with that transcendent aspect of ourselves, our fear of death will ultimately disappear.

    Eckhart Tolle Special: The Paradox of Order and Chaos

    Eckhart Tolle Special: The Paradox of Order and Chaos

    Original Air Date: May 21, 2021
    Eckhart Tolle elaborates on the paradox of order and chaos that exists in our world. For many of us, especially this past year, living through the pandemic has wreaked havoc on our lives. We’ve experienced loss of socializing, income and perhaps the loss of someone we love. While we might be tempted to despair, Eckhart says order and chaos are an essential part of a higher order. He says there are larger forces at work in the Universe and if we can surrender to that, life’s challenges have the potential to transform our consciousness.

HATE THE ADVERTISEMENTS

The the inserted advertisements are extremely disruptive to his teachings and a jolting distraction. Why are they so loud and obviously inserted into his mid sentence. What are the editors thinking for a a meditative program on higher consciousness??
