Eckhart Tolle – The Power of Now and awakening your true potential.

“Having access to that formless realm of pure Being is truly liberating. It frees you from bondage to form and identification with form. It is life in its indifferentiated state prior to its fragmentation into multiplicity. We may call it Unmanifested, the invisible Source of all things, the Being within all beings. It is a realm of deep stillness and peace, but also of joy and intense aliveness. Whenever you are present you become transparent to some extent to the light, the pure consciousness that emanates from this Source. You also realize that the Light is not separate from who you are but constitutes your very essence”.
Eckhart Tolle

It all become possible after dissolution of ego and dropping the need to label anything.

I am a big fan of Eckhart Tolle work, teachings and books, “The Power of Now” and “A New Earth” and I admit they shaped me immensely. Since I discovered him years ago and found his words resonating with something deep inside me, I did a thorough research based on the way he approaches life and how he sees reality. I probably read, listened to, and watched everything out there focused on Tolle’s teachings. I am not an avid follower of only one spiritual teacher. Probably even wouldn’t be able to do so with my never fed, never full and always starving curiosity, driven by the rush in my veins to discover more and understand more.  I listen to all teachings out there from many people, I compare, combine, disagree, and create my own philosophy out of it. Basically I believe in one philosophy – Be Your own Guru. Every real spiritual teacher taught exactly that. Starting with Buddha, Krishnamurti, or more modern ones like Alan Watts, Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh and ending on Sri H. W. L. Poonja, who is famous for his phrase – “No teachers, no teachings, no students”, since we are all that what Is. We are all It, meaning Awareness behind it all.

We can all sense it, yet we seem to suppress this knowledge and bury it under the fear of uncertainty. If you feel there is something greater out there than our earth-suit materialistic bodies, then definitely give it a go with Eckhart talks and books. I read “The power of Now” couple of times and keep coming back to it often while on a bus to work or so ( it’s a good book to read while on public transport in a traffic 😉 ).

There are hundreds of Eckhart Tolle teachings and lectures available online. It’s pointless to list all of the videos I went through during the last few years. This would be hundreds of hours and links to share. Simply type in his full name on youtube and start your own ride. He covers pretty much it All. Whatever it is that You are looking for or struggling to understand in your life, you will probably find some answers to your queries in Tolle’s words.

Good, meaningful and full of humour talks to start with would be :

1. Eckhart Tolle’s talk at Google :

2. Eckhart Tolle – Awakening in the Digital Age

3. Eckhart Tolle – Conversations on Compassion

For more information you can visit Eckhart Tolle official website .

Enjoy the journey…it’s definitely worth getting to know Tolle’s teachings. If you say time is an issue for you, and you don’t have time to sit and watch it all, I’ll tell you – me neither. I listened to all of that while doing every day chores like hoovering with my headphones on with talks streaming from youtube, while cooking, while getting ready to work, putting on make up, while doing yoga, exercises, while taking a bath etc. Whenever I have internet access, there is always some kind of lecture, documentary movie, streaming summits from different online universities I enrolled to or talks playing in the background. I practice everyday mindfulness yet along with that I learnt exceptional skills in divided attention. Except for meditation. This, I do in complete silence for a change 😉 In the pure silence and stillness of the mind I seem to catalogue and digest all the information I came across and assimilated from different sources plus get some additional “The Information” from the unknown source, not fully channelling yet, but getting close 😉 So until I will be channelling Universal Knowledge and Higher Consciousness myself fully, I will stick to my addictive educative patterns for now. And I must say I am fully satisfied with that journey. I feel it will lead to something even more magical soon. Knowledge can be magical you ask? Hell yeah, what else?
