The 20 Most Enlightening Eckhart Tolle Quotes on Life

11. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. – Eckhart Tolle


12.  Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time—past and future—the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is. – Eckhart Tolle


13. Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life. – The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment – Eckhart Tolle


14. A genuine relationship is one that is not dominated by the ego with its image-making and self-seeking. In a genuine relationship, there is an outward flow of open, alert attention toward the other person in which there is no wanting whatsoever. – Eckhart Tolle


15. The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but thought about it. Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking. Separate them from the situation, which is always neutral. It is as it is. – Eckhart Tolle

16. As soon as you honor the present moment, all unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out the present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love – even the most simple action. – The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment – Eckhart Tolle


17. Nothing ever happened in the past that can prevent you from being present now, and if the past can’t prevent you from being present now, what power does it have? – Eckhart Tolle


18. In today’s rush we all think too much, seek too much, want too much and forget about the joy of just being. – Eckhart Tolle


19. You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level. – Eckhart Tolle


20. Love is not selective, just as the light of the sun is not selective. It does not make one person special. It is not exclusive. Exclusivity is not the love of God but the “love” of ego. However, the intensity with which true love is felt can vary. There may be one person who reflects your love back to you more clearly and more intensely than others, and if that person feels the same toward you, it can be said that you are in a love relationship with him or her. The bond that connects you with that person is the same bond that connects you with the person sitting next to you on a bus, or with a bird, a tree, a flower. Only the degree of intensity with which it is felt differs. – The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment – Eckhart Tolle
