Accessing deeper than the stream of mind
|Beside the sacred Ganga River in Rishikesh, India, Eckhart Tolle talks about the timeless topic:
the deepest truth of human existence. Talks ‘about’ is appropriate – because words are not the truth, says Tolle. They can only be about the truth; they can only point to the truth. But they are not the truth, which is why Tolle asks us to listen to the gaps between his words as well as to the words themselves.
Do we know ourselves? Some of us think we do. But what we really mean, says Tolle, is “I know a lot about myself.” We know facts, information; we know the contents of our minds. We then identify with those thought forms. The difference between identifying with your BMW ego and your nice spiritual ego is just a matter of subtlety, he says. Form = limitation. The only solution is to live in inner alignment – no matter what the form.
Speaking earnestly and directly to the heart, Eckhart inspires us to know ourselves at the deepest level. He takes us, step by step, from the ego position of the mind to surrender to the Now. “What grace to see the very thing that seems to be limiting you on all sides is the doorway to presence.”
Disidentification with forms and our own thought forms
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. At the age of 29 a profound inner transformation radically changed the course of his life. The insights he gained he has been sharing with the world is his best selling books such as The Power of Now (currently in 33 languages) and A New Earth – discussed with Oprah on her show. He also has become a sought-after public speaker, overcoming initial shyness.
