Taking Care of Business

Quotes by Eckhart Tolle

  1. “The past has no power over the present moment.”
  2. “The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.”
  3. “Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”
  4. “To love is to recognize yourself in another.”
  5. “Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on.”
  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 the moment.”
  7. “Life isn’t as serious as the mind makes it out to be.”
  8. “Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.”
  9. “You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.”
  10. “Life is the dancer and you are the dance.”
  11. “Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it.”
  12. “Anything that you resent and strongly react to in another is also in you.”
  13. “Whatever you fight, you strengthen, and what you resist, persists.”
  14. “Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to “die before you die” — and find that there is no death.”
  15. “Being spiritual has nothing to do with what you believe and everything to do with your state of consciousness.”
  16. “Worry pretends to be necessary but serves no useful purpose”
  17. “This, too, will pass.”
  18. “Is there a difference between happiness and inner peace? Yes. Happiness depends on conditions being perceived as positive; inner peace does not.”
  19. “Accept – then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it.”
  20. “All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness.”
  21. “All the things that truly matter, beauty, love, creativity, joy and inner peace arise from beyond the mind.”
  22. “Pleasure is always derived from something outside you, whereas joy arises from within.”
  23. “Living up to an image that you have of yourself or that other people have of you is inauthentic living.”
  24. “Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness.”
  25. “If not now, when?”
  26. “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.”
