ECKHART TOLLE. A NEW EARTH. Awakening to This book's main purpose is not to add new information or beliefs to your mind or to try to convince you of. In The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle shared the enlightenment he experienced after a startling personal transformation. This companion book extracts the. Can a person be awakened spiritually by a book? Yes, if three That is why such a book can be read again and again and An essay by Eckhart Tolle, author.
When the task is completed, you lay it down. When you observe your mind, Eckhart says; you will find this to be true. The present moment holds the key to liberation. But you cannot find the present moment as long as you are your mind.
Eckhart reminds us that enlightenment means rising above thought, not falling back to a level below thought, the level of an animal or a plant. Eckhart acknowledges how Emotion arises at the place where mind and body meet. Research has shown that strong emotions even cause changes in the biochemistry of the body.
These biochemical changes represent the physical or material aspect of the emotion. If you have difficulty feeling your emotions, start by focusing attention on the inner energy field of your body. Feel the body from within. This will also put you in touch with your emotions. Tolle believes that, the more you are identified with your thinking, your likes and dislikes, judgments and interpretations, which is to say the less present you are as the watching consciousness. Therefore, the stronger the emotional energy charge will be, whether you are aware of it or not.
Something that Eckhart Tolle highly recommend is to make it a habit to ask yourself: That question will point you in the right direction. Focus your attention within. Feel the energy of the emotion. If there is no emotion present, take your attention more deeply into the inner energy field of your body. It is the doorway into Being.
Love, joy, and peace are deep states of Being, or rather the three aspects of the state of inner connectedness with being. As such, they have no opposite. This is because they arise from beyond the mind. Pleasure is always derived from something outside you, whereas joy arises from within. Emotions, on the other hand, being part of the dualistic mind, are subject to the law of opposites. This simply means that you cannot have good without bad.
The greater part of human pain is unnecessary. It is self-created as long as the unobserved mind runs your life. The intensity of the pain depends on the degree of resistance to the present moment, and this, in turn, depends on how strongly you are identified with your mind.
Yes, we need the mind as well as time to function in this world, but there comes a point where they take over our lives, and this is where dysfunction, pain, and sorrow set in. All individuals are suffering under this burden, but they also keep adding to it every moment whenever they ignore or deny that precious moment or reduce it to a means of getting to some future moment, which only exists in the mind, never in actuality.
Always work with it, rather against it. Make it your friend and ally, not your enemy. Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have. As long as you are unable to access the power of the Now, every emotional pain that you experience leaves behind a residue of pain that lives on in you. This, of course, includes the pain you suffered as a child, caused by the unconsciousness of the world into which you were born.
Watch out for any sign of unhappiness in yourself, in whatever form —it may be the awakening pain-body. Everything is shown up by being exposed to the light, and whatever is exposed to the light itself becomes light.
The moment you observe it, feel its energy field within you and take your attention into it. There are two levels to your pain: Be present enough to be able to watch the pain-body directly and feel its energy. It then cannot control your thinking. This is not to deny that you may encounter intense inner resistance to dis-identifying from your pain. What this means is that you have made an unhappy self out of your pain-body and believe that this mind-made fiction is who you are.
The truth to which the words point, the timeless dimension of consciousness, cannot be arrived at through discursive thought and conceptual understanding. This book is not a condensed version of A New Earth. Although it contains some of the most powerful pointers from the original book, there is relatively little here about the ego and nothing about the pain-body.
In other words: If you want to understand and thus be able to detect those mental-emotional patterns within you that block the arising of a new consciousness, you have to go to the original book. This book will be of greatest benefit to those who have already read A New Earth —perhaps more than once —responded to it deeply, and experienced some degree of inner transformation through it. The informational content of this book is of relatively little importance.
You read it not so much to learn something new, but to go deeper, become more present, awaken out of the stream of incessant and compulsive thinking. Beyond the concept of enlightenment, there is a secluded place within; no one can name it — find that area. After you become familiar with the process of contemplation, peace will enter your heart. Sensations and other phenomena will not be able to bother you like it used to in the past.
This book is prescribed for every person out there; all beings deserve to experience change and happiness without exception. At the time, Germany was weak in all possible ways, Eckhart moved a couple of times to find some stability.
When he was around 30, he spontaneously entered into a mystical state after a series of near-death experiences, fears, and other phenomena. The Power of Now is the most original self-help book there is.
Eckhart Tolle shares his experiences combined with the ones of others in order to produce a high-quality piece of material. Becoming aware of the ever-lasting truth is the only mission to every person according to Eckhart.
Many phenomena and inner sensations keep us away from the ever-present truth. The ego state represents everything visible, or everything that you can see. Our book summary stimulates all people from every corner of this world, to really comprehend the message that Eckhart Toller tries to convey.
The book was first published in Canada, shortly afterward many people reported transformation, healing, and even miracles.
The immense impact had spread throughout the continent and further. Thanks to this beautiful masterpiece, the world has entered into a new stage. Above all, the dominant energy emerging from it confuses your spaciousness, Eckhart Tolle draws examples from his personal experience to help you retain it.
Instead of relying on your imposed beliefs, and concepts, you can open your mind to the ultimate truth and become one with it. Until he was almost 30 years old Echkart Tolle was a very anxious person. He was dominated by fears and suicidal thoughts.
By not being able to enjoy the present moment, but constantly struggling to imagine the future. Lack of energy. Echkart Tolle brings a fresh perspective to all these worries starting with this revelation: Then suddenly I became aware of what a peculiar thought it was. This is about human power. If I cannot live with myself, there must be two of me: How does Echkart describe the process to achieve this message?
First step: After that, you will start to think differently and not put so much emphasis on this process of thinking. You will be more concerned about getting in touch with your inner body. Or about analyzing more what you feel and how you perceive things and not so much about your thoughts. Second step: They create labels. Being, however, has the advantage that it is an open concept.
It does not reduce the infinite invisible to a finite entity. It is impossible to form a mental image of it.
Which is the main obstacle that people have when trying to reach a new level of consciousness? The answer is just in front of us. The fact that they cannot stop thinking: Main rule: Our mind is only a tool that we need for certain actions.
Keeping a focus on the present is another important issue that Echkart brings into a conversation. One of the main problems the entire humanity is confronted with is the inability to engage all the attention exclusively on the NOW. Maybe it is not mandatory to enjoy the present moment, but definitely, you should acknowledge it. You should feel the sensations that come with it, to experience it.
No judging according to something that happened in the past. No diminishing its importance because we are hoping for something better in the future:. Make the Now the primary focus of your life. Accept all that NOW brings to your life.
By exercising these even physical pain will no longer be a part of you:. You have to be an outside observer of yourself and the pain will no longer control you.
Once you make this statement a part of who you are, each time you become anxious about something in your future you will remember this and suddenly be more relaxed because you will understand that most of the time your mind creates scenarios that are far worse than anything that will actually happen.
And even if something bad will happen, it is not in your control to stop it, but it is in your control to accept it and to move on. People put so little emphasis on the present joy and good times and they always feel that they will be truly happy only when they will get a better job, a bigger house, a nicer car.
But when they do get those things, the joy is so small compared to what they hoped in their minds that it will be, that they start making other plans for the future.
This is not to say that you cannot have goals and aspirations for the future. Of course, you can have that. The idea is not to fully identify yourself only with those goals. You need to understand that each man has an inner journey and an outer journey as the author explains. Your inner journey has only the step that you are taking right now. No matter at what point you are in your outer journey, your inner self should be un-shattered by the storms outside.
This is one of the ideas that sums up a lot of the main concepts of this book. We as humans are taught to label things so we can have access to them in an easier way. But the problem is that in this way we only see things in a superficial way, according to the labels we just set up in our minds. The Power of Now This is valid for external things but also for the way we perceive ourselves: Your love is not outside; it is deep within you.
You can never lose it, and it cannot leave you. It is not dependent on some other body, some external form. Thinker or thinking — Which one is correct? The last battle you must take 3. One tricky question can help you understand this book.
Am I the thinker of thoughts or thoughts appear in me? The sooner you realize it, the better. An inner change requires alertness and vigilance.
Fight with your self-made personality and come out a winner on the other side. A habit is a severe problem, often when someone insults somebody else on a personal level, that someone feels disgusted and crushed. Change your perspective, that person is not referring to your real nature.
Like this summary? There are a lot of concepts that you need to truly understand not only with your mind but also from within in order for a real transformation to occur.
At first, because of our selfish ego, we might be tempted to just read the book in a superficial way and not make any changes. But if you revisit the concepts after a while and start applying some of the ideas, you will see a transformation that can really take you to a whole new understanding of life.
We spend most of our lives thinking about the past and wondering how our future can be different from it. In the meantime, we forget the present moment, postpone our achievements to a distant day, and create dreams that will make us happy if they are fulfilled. To change our lives, we need to start now. And that is why Eckhart Tolle wrote this book. Living the present moment is the best path to our happiness and success.
Eckhart combines concepts from Christianity, Buddhism and other religions to help us live the present. In this microbook, we seek to create a practical manual to fully live the present and thus find our happiness and harmony. Are you ready? All the problems of humanity converge to something in common: Our mind hides our true identity, creating a mask.
