I find great peace by reading spiritual quotes. It’s very soothing to glimpse into your inner self for perspective. Today I wanted to share my favorite quotes from spiritual teacher and author Eckhart Tolle. Enjoy 😉

1- 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.

2- For what you do to others, you do to yourself.

3- Instead of asking “what do I want from life?,” a more powerful question is, “what does life want from me?”

4- If there were nothing but thought in you, you wouldn’t even know you are thinking. You would be like a dreamer who doesn’t know he is dreaming. When you know you are dreaming, you are awake within the dream.

5- Nothing ever happened in the past that can prevent you from being present now; and if the past cannot prevent you from being present now, what power does it have?

6- Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at this moment.

7- You cannot be both unhappy and fully present in the Now.

8- Whenever an answer, a solution, or a creative idea is needed, stop thinking for a moment by focusing attention on your inner energy field. … When you resume thinking, it will be fresh and creative.

9- All the things that truly matter — beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace — arise from beyond the mind.

10- If I cannot live with myself, there must be two of me

11- Thinking and consciousness are not synonymous. Thinking is only a small aspect of consciousness. Thought cannot exist without consciousness, but consciousness does not need thought.

12- Forget about your life situation and pay attention to your life. Your life situation exists in time. Your life is now. Your life situation is mind-stuff. Your life is real.

13- Not all thinking and all emotion are of the ego. They turn into ego only when you identify with them and they take you over completely, that is to say, when they become “I.”

14- Space has no “existence.” “To exist” literally means “to stand out.” You cannot understand space because it doesn’t stand out. Although in itself it has no existence, it enables everything else to exist. Silence has no existence either, nor does the Unmanifested.

15- Always say “yes” to the present moment. What could be more futile, more insane, than to create inner resistance to what already is? what could be more insane than to oppose life itself, which is now and always now? Surrender to what is. Say “yes” to life — and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.

16- Why does the mind habitually deny or resist the Now? Because it cannot function and remain in control without time, which is past and future, so it perceives the timeless Now as threatening. Time and mind are in fact inseparable.

17- The mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. Used wrongly, however, it becomes very destructive. To put it more accurately, it is not so much that you use your mind wrongly — you usually don’t use it at all. It uses you. This is the disease. You believe that you are your mind. This is the delusion. The instrument has taken you over.

18- What a liberation to realize that the “voice in my head” is not who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that.

19- “How” is always more important that “what.” See if you can give much more attention to the doing than to the result that you want to achieve through it.

20- The secret of life is to “die before you die” — and find that there is no death.

To get a deeper understanding of these quotes, I highly recommend that you get your hands on some of Eckhart Tolle‘s writings. It’s really a joy to read, and can really make a difference in your life. Check out my picks below:

  5. A few of the quotes from Tolle are almost exactly the words of Krishnamurti. But others seem to be from New Age Thought and some from Advaita. The difference between Tolle and Krishnamurti is that Tolle says there is a Self and that it survives death (if I understand him clearly) while K may not speak directly on the topic … it seems he always puts the question back on the reader, he appears to have more of a not-self view. Much like Buddha, he seems to deny the existence of the atman as the self … or jiva (soul). I tend to agree with the Buddhist / K view.

  6. Sometime a moment still,… bring us very close to the infinite boundless. And suddenly it seems that we are standing apart from a hard-mass(body), but still it is the only access for us to connect to the source of ever lasting Peace and Joy as the Master says’ There is a Lot of Past inside in each one of us. Like a projector showing us a movie on the mental screen and different movie for different mental screen we react(Re-Act) accordingly to this projector of the past. Master teaches to detach,….detach from this mental movie which paint a story……a unique story to identify with……..Master show us the way to enlightenment. He says you are not listening to me you are listening to the voice of presence i.e. to your voice. Actually we all are looking for fulfillment and the code error is to find it outside us in the World, which all follows the law of Impermanence. Each one of us has some belief system that intuitively guides us to move in a specified direction like a animated puppet. This belief system give us the belief to search for stability out of Insecurities and we move, run , sleep, talk about it accordingly to the belief
    and assure us that ultimately either I have lost that connection to a complete Satisfaction,Fulfillment, Stability, Security or….I believe that I shall have it in
    future by acquiring and possessing this or that at some point but in the course of all miss the most important fragment of life NOW, actually the connection is never
    lost it is there inside us and whoever will look for the connection will definitely
    get it. It is like to raise the tower of our transmission to receive it. But still no one can help you but you. You are the Link and when you walk to the source ultimately YOU become the SOURCE.
    Till then just follow three golden rule
    1. Non-Resistance
    2. Non-Judgement
    3. Non-Attachment
    to everything……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………Feel Life In you and around you.It is One LIfe that flows through us. MY Life is Illusion. Look at the sky Look out how each arrangement of Solar system, our planet, Ozone layer Atmospheric pressure are so accurate to have life come in the form of animation around us……………….

  10. Resting and abiding bring with it – timelessness i.e. in someone coming to you, you see the all present, and oftimes the decision in that NOW is to just remain present and non attached.

    You have a video instant view of all of it karmic present past future …… then arrives only the willingness to allow.

    Rage remains a constant …… simple, but real place. It hunts the quiet and the only resting place is in detachment.

    And this posting too is NOT.
