Can We Trust Our Feelings and Intuition? ~ Eckhart Tolle

Published on Jul 2, 2018

The conditioned mind will often create feelings out of fear, and these should not be the guiding force in your life. Eckhart urges us instead to discover the deeper feelings that arise from Presence—the source of true intuition—and to let that guide your actions.

Remaining Conscious in an Unconscious World – Leonard Jacobson

As you awaken, you will have to assume responsibility for your life within the world of time.

You have to work or do whatever is necessary to earn money and provide for your needs.

How do you accomplish this without becoming lost in the mind? How do you remain present in a world where almost everyone is focused in the past and future? How do you live in a world of fear and desire when you are no longer ruled by fear and desire, and when you are no longer seduced by the promise of future fulfillment?

As long as you are not driven by ego desires or fears, the quality of Presence will not be lost.

Do not compare yourself with others. Surrender patterns of judgment, control and manipulation. Do not follow the urges, cravings and habits of your ego. It may take a little time to overcome habitual patterns but, if your commitment is sincere, it is not difficult.

Choose to be in the present moment as much as possible. Only enter into thought with conscious intention.

Surrender the will of your ego to a higher dimension of your Being and honor the present moment as the truth of life.

Be present. Be responsive. Be authentic. Feel your feelings. Know what you want, moment to moment. It will deliver you through life, constantly renewing you from one moment to the next.

Do not be afraid to live at a more superficial level of Presence in order to function in the world of time. That which is real cannot be lost.

It is all a question of balance. As long as the awakened state of Presence is the foundation of your life, you will not go astray.

I’m Bored And I’d Like To Change Jobs. How Can I find Out What Will Give Me Joy And A Feeling Of Meaningfulness?

by Eckhart Tolle: You always start with the present moment. You start with where you are rather than trying to get away from where you are…

I suggest, when you travel to work every morning, that you enter the state of presence rather than drifting off into thinking. Be there every moment, whether you’re driving or taking public transportation or walking to work. Absolute presence.

And when you’re at work, do one thing at a time and bring in spacious moments as much as possible. It could only be a few seconds. One spacious breath after you’ve made a phone call. And then when you go to lunch—again, present with every movement.

So you use what otherwise would be a “boring situation” as the background for presence. Ultimately, you’re not looking for some satisfaction in the work but you bring a different state of consciousness to it. In a way, your work situation becomes like an excuse for practicing presence. And you’re lucky if you have a relatively boring job. It gives you a great opportunity for practicing. If you had a very stressful job that kept you in a state of excitement all day long, it would be more difficult. So be thankful if life has given you something relatively boring.

Now as you learn how to use the situation as the background for presence, often the discontent disappears—and that is the mark of true surrender. If there’s discontent, of course, there’s still not complete surrender. For example, you’re still thinking, “I’d rather be somewhere else,” or, “How many more years till retirement?” You’re losing yourself in past and future and you’re carrying the burden in your mind of past and future, missing the opportunity of the present moment because “it’s not interesting enough!”

Practice and you may find that if you come into alignment with the present moment, you feel more alive. Even within routine activities, there is then an added dimension of aliveness that comes in and you perform the activities with a greater sense of aliveness. It is often then that change comes into your life.

When you align internally with the present moment instead of trying to get away from it, power begins to flow through. That’s why I call it The Power of Now. It’s the power of life itself. It begins to flow through you.

At first it flows into your routine activities, and the way in which you relate to your colleagues becomes more present or somewhat different. Some people may notice it. Others may not. And so, gradually the universe or life notices that you are in a different state of consciousness and often it is then that change comes into your life—either through a chance event or a chance encounter or a sudden idea or realization that comes into your head one morning.

Now in what way change comes into your life, we don’t know. It is much more likely to come in, but you no longer depend on external change for your inner state. That’s the main thing. Even if nothing else came into your life, you would continue practice until your last breath and your last breath would be a conscious breath and you would have fulfilled your purpose on this planet in this form, which is to be the vehicle for consciousness to come into this world.

So, you don’t depend on anything. Change is more likely to come, yes, but the presence practice is not a means to an end. You’re not practicing to say, “Okay, I’ll practice but if nothing happens within six weeks, I’ll stop practicing.”

To all of you who are bored at work: Make it into a spiritual practice, a consciousness practice. “Bored at work” also means you’re not particularly challenged at work. In the absence of life challenges, there’s always the danger that you will fall below thought and you might find yourself in a routine that you think is acceptance but you’re really falling below thought. Then you go to work and there’s a decrease in your sense of alertness and aliveness. That’s not surrender or presence.

Effortless Emergent Presence: Francis Lucille

Published on Apr 10, 2018

Francis Lucille guides the audience in a meditation on the yes-saying path of “holy laziness.” He reminds us that this moment, and always, everything is happening on its own. Our decisions are in fact cosmic events, no different than the rain or the snow or the hurricane. They just happen. Nobody owns them. The mind pretends to own them, to be the thinker of the thought, the decider of the decision, but it’s like a clown taking the bow after the ballerina’s performance, to claim the applause.

Eckhart Tolle: SELF-AWARE STILLNESS IN THE PRESENT MOMENT

A true spiritual teacher does not have anything to teach in the conventional sense of the word, does not have anything to give or add to you, such as new information, beliefs, or rules of conduct. The only function of such a teacher is to help you remove that which separates you from the truth of who you already are and what you already know in the depth of your being. 

The spiritual teacher is there to uncover and reveal to you that dimension of the inner depth that is also peace. If you come to a spiritual teacher or this book looking for stimulating ideas, theories, beliefs, intellectual discussions, then you will be disappointed. In other words, if you are looking for food for thought, you won’t find it. And you will miss the very essence of the teaching, the essence of this book which is not in the words but within yourself.

It is good to remember that, to feel that, as you listen. The words are no more than signposts. That to which they point is not to be found within the realm of thought but a dimension within yourself that is deeper, and infinitely vaster than thought. A vibrantly alive peace is one of the characteristics of that dimension. So whenever you feel inner peace arising as you listen, the book is doing it work and fulfilling its function as your teacher. It is reminding you of who you are and pointing the way back home.
