Twelve quotes by Eckhart Tolle on living in present, acceptance and wisdom

Eckhart Tolle – Words reduce reality to something the human mind can grasp, which isn’t very much.

  • “Words reduce reality to something the human mind can grasp, which isn’t very much.”
  • “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 the moment.”
  • “Accept – then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it.”
  • “Don’t let a mad world tell you that success is anything other than a successful present moment.”
  • “Worry pretends to be necessary but serves no useful purpose”
  • “To love is to recognize yourself in another.”
  • “Where there is anger there is always pain underneath.”
  • “You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you, and allowing that goodness to emerge. But it can only emerge if something fundamental changes in your state of consciousness.”
  • “Rather than being your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind them.”
  • “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.”
  • “The moment that judgement stops through acceptance of what it is, you are free of the mind. You have made room for love, for joy, for peace.”
  • “I have lived with several Zen masters — all of them cats.”
