Eckhart Tolle Quotes About The Power of Now

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.” – Eckhart Tolle

Eckhart Tolle Quotes

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.” – Eckhart Tolle

Eckhart Tolle Quotes

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.” – Eckhart Tolle

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.” – Eckhart Tolle

Eckhart Tolle Quotes

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

Eckhart Tolle Quotes

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

Eckhart Tolle Quotes

21. “Being must be felt. It can’t be thought.” – Eckhart Tolle

Eckhart Tolle Quotes

23. “Give up defining yourself — to yourself or to others. You won’t die. You will come to life. And don’t be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it’s their problem. Whenever you interact with people, don’t be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.” – Eckhart Tolle
