Eckhart Tolle: Quotes from The Power Of Now

 “all the things that truly matter — beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace — arise from beyond the mind”

“All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness”  

“Emotion arises at the place where mind and body meet. It is the body’s reaction to your mind — or you might say, a reflection of your mind in the body”

“Love, joy, and peace cannot flourish until you have freed yourself from mind dominance” 

“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”

“To be identified with your mind is to be trapped in time: the compulsion to live almost exclusively through memory and anticipation”

“Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry — all forms of fear — are cause by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of nonforgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence”

“You find God the moment you realize that you don’t need to seek God”

“Relationships do not cause pain and unhappiness. They bring out the pain and unhappiness that is already in you”
