When your attention moves into the Now…

”When you are present, when your attention is fully in the Now, Presence will flow into and transform what you do. There will be a quality and power in it. You are present when what you are doing is not primarily a means to an end (money, prestige, winning) but fulfilling in itself, when there is joy and aliveness in what you do.”

Charlotte’s Story

My whole life I was interested in spiritual teachings. I did yoga classes and meditation exercises. Ten years ago my husband (who is now my ex-husband) started to listen to videos from Eckhart Tolle. At that time, I could not really grasp the content and was not interested.

Ellie’s Story

I was given my first Eckhart Tolle book” Guardians of Being” as a Christmas present by a dear friend in 2009. I clearly remember sitting and reading it with my two dogs close beside me on Christmas morning. I thought it was amazing as it struck a chord with me and it was simply and beautifully written and illustrated. This made it both easy to understand yet really profound at the same time.

Our Creative Universe

Q: What kind of guidance would you offer to people to remember, or be aware that we are a creative force in a creative Universe?

ET: The awakening process has two aspects, or two dimensions, to it. One is the finding the Source within, as yourself. Then, [there is] bringing that into your life more and more

Finding Balance

Q: How do we find balance between our individual will and the natural flow of life?

ET: By living aligned with the present moment, you also align your will with the universal will, which you could call “the will of God”. You don’t have a separate will. The separate will wants to enhance or strengthen one’s sense of self. The separate will is concerned with the “me”, the “I”, the ego. But there is a divine Consciousness, the one Consciousness, there is an evolutionary impulse. What we are doing here at every moment, is to align ourselves with that.
