The Time is Always Now

The Time is Always Now

2021-06-1752:54

Eckhart Tolle talks with a live audience about the importance of living in the now. Drawing on ideas from his best-selling book, The Power of Now, Eckhart encourages participants not to linger on past mistakes, but to learn from them and then let them go. He says we must remember that there is only ever now, not as a memory, but a live realization. Situations arise in our lives, but only in the present moment.  And we should not let our life situation obscure the bigger picture of who we are or our sense of aliveness, spaciousness and presence.
Transcending Our Stories

Transcending Our Stories

Eckhart Tolle talks with a live audience about our tendency to manufacture stories...about ourselves and others; our desperate need to be right and to make others wrong. Eckhart says having a story actually strengthens the ego and keeps us stuck. However, we don’t have to stay there. He says we can learn to shift our inner narrative, release the ego and align ourselves with the peace of the present moment.

Eckhart Tolle discusses with a live audience one of his key spiritual teachings: the Practice of Presence. He says presence arises when we free ourselves of incessant thinking and unconscious reactivity, rolling back the ego, so our essential self can shine through. He asks the audience if they’ve reached a stage in in their own spiritual evolution if they can choose to be free of thinking without exerting will power. He says as we become more adept, it’s possible to stay fully present through all of life’s ups and downs. Eventually, we learn to lead a more awakened life.
Eckhart Tolle says that we should not panic when life’s difficulties arise. He says adversity actually plays a critical role in the evolution of our consciousness. Without it we would not learn to lead what he calls an awakened life. Eckhart quotes an ancient Roman aphorism: Per Aspera Ad Astra... which translates into, “It is through adversity that we reach the stars.”
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 discusses two of his key concepts which he calls the horizontal and the vertical. They could also be called the everyday and the transcendent. Eckhart describes the horizontal as the place of everyday life: our egos, identification with our thoughts and our personalities. The vertical he says is connected to the source of all life… which some also call God. He says it’s also where the transcendent dimension of us lives which is beyond space and time. Eckhart says the primary purpose of our lives is to become aware of the vertical. Eckhart says it’s our destiny to live with a foot in both worlds. When we embrace the vertical, we transform the horizontal.
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 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.
Eckhart Tolle shares his wisdom on living through challenging times. Whether it’s political upheaval, the pandemic or a personal crisis, Eckhart explains why adversity can actually help us to awaken to the deeper dimension of who we are.

Thank you so much you two! I read the book and try to listen to everything by Eckhart Tolle. I just about died by my own hand and everything sparkled I was waiting for the poison to overtake me and know the pain he felt very intimately and could see no way out! I sang to Jesus and all the people I could think of that had passed friends and family. Well my husband found me and I was saved. PS I am awakening now and in intense trauma therapy! Keep it up it is good to know someone else felt like me.
