“The more time dominates your life
The more identified you are with thought.”
Eckhart Tolle invites us to explore our typical day-to-day state of consciousness: a state where we hope that the future will be better, or fear that it will be worse, than what is happening at this moment. Eckhart leads us to the astonishing realisation that the future ultimately exists only as a thought in our head. He also elaborates on the sense of incompleteness we instill in ourselves by identifying with our thoughts, which always concern the past and future – creating unease with the present moment. In this talk, Eckhart describes how the more time dominates our life,
the more identified we are with thought, including:
– The way in which the concept of time is used by the mind to explain change
– The conceptual identity we rely on to construct our sense of self
– How this identity creates distance between self and other
– How the human urge to create conflict provides a substitute for a true feeling of aliveness
Enjoy the depth of practical wisdom and loads of subtle humour.
Eckhart Tolle One of the most popular and profound of contemporary wisdom teachers, Eckhart Tolle was born in Germany and studied at the Universities of London and Cambridge.

He also has become a sought-after public speaker,
