Don't let a mad world tell you that success is anything other than a successful present moment.

Eckhart Tolle  


Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.

Eckhart Tolle  


The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.

Eckhart Tolle  


Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry -- all forms of fear -- are caused by too much future, and not enough presence.

Eckhart Tolle  


Become conscious of being conscious.

Eckhart Tolle  


Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.

Eckhart Tolle  


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  


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.

Eckhart Tolle  


Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time. If it is a mistake, at least you learn something, in which case it's no longer a mistake. If you remain stuck, you learn nothing.

Eckhart Tolle  


All negativity is caused by an accumulation of psychological time and denial of the present. Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry - all forms of fear - are caused 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.

Eckhart Tolle  


It is not uncommon for people to spend their whole life waiting to start living.

Eckhart Tolle  


If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place. Primary reality is within; secondary reality without.

Eckhart Tolle  


The past gives you an identity and the future holds the promise of salvation, of fulfillment in whatever form. Both are illusions.

Eckhart Tolle  


See if you can catch yourself complaining, in either speech or thought, about a situation you find yourself in, what other people do or say, your surroundings, your life situation, even the weather. To complain is always nonacceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself into a victim. When you speak out, you are in your power. So change the situation by taking action or by speaking out if necessary or possible; leave the situation or accept it. All else is madness.

Eckhart Tolle  


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.

Eckhart Tolle  


If your mind carries a heavy burden of the past, you will experience more of the same. The past perpetuates itself through lack of presence. The quality of your consciousness at this moment is what shapes the future.

Eckhart Tolle  


What a caterpillar calls the end of the world we call a butterfly.

Eckhart Tolle  


The key to transformation is to make friends with this moment. What form it takes doesn't matter. Say yes to it. Allow it. Be with it.

Eckhart Tolle  


Break the old pattern of present moment denial and present moment resistance. Make it your practice to withdraw attention from past and future whenever they are not needed.

Eckhart Tolle  


Whatever you experience, feel, do, or think, it is always in the now.

Eckhart Tolle  


A vital question to ask yourself frequently is: What is my relationship to the present moment?

Eckhart Tolle  


The key to transformation is to make friends with this moment. What form it takes doesn't matter. Say yes to it. Allow it. Be with it.
