Eckhart Tolle Quotes about Awareness

Eckhart Tolle Quote on Cats

Thought subsides when you pet your dog or you have a purring cat on your chest. Even just watching an animal can take you out of your mind. It is more deeply connected with the source of life than most humans, and that rootlessness in Being transmits itself to you. Millions of people who otherwise would be completely lost in the conceptual reality of their mind are kept sane by living with an animal.

Because dogs and cats still live in the original state of connectedness with Being, they can help us regain it. When we do so, however, that original state deepens and turns into awareness.

I have lived with several Zen masters — all of them cats.

Eckhart Tolle Quotes about Awareness

Be aware that what you think, to a large extent, creates the emotions that you feel. See the link between your thinking and your emotions. Rather than being your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind them.

Awareness is the greatest agent for change.

You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.

Eckhart Tolle Quotes About Writing

This is why very often you find educated people in the media who look at spiritual books but they are so identified with their thought process, they don’t get it. They write reviews or articles and they miss the whole point. They can’t see the essence. It’s not their fault; it’s not them personally. It’s the human condition and its mind-identified state. And intelligence in itself doesn’t help. You can have two or three Ph. D.’s; it doesn’t get you any closer to spiritual realization. In fact, you might be more distant.

People had been writing to me and saying, “Can you write something for children?” I felt I couldn’t quite do it myself because I never had children.

If a fish is born in your aquarium and you call him John, write out a birth certificate, tell him about his family history, and in two minutes he gets eaten by another fish – that’s tragic. But it’s only tragic because you projected a separate self where there was none. You got hold of a fraction of dynamic process, a molecular dance, and a separate entity out of it.

Eckhart Tolle Quotes on Life

Life is now. There was never a time when your life was not now, nor will there ever be.

To end the misery that has afflicted the human condition for thousands of years, you have to start with yourself and take responsibility for you inner state at any given moment. That means now

Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.
