Eckhart Tolle’s Quotes On Self-Development

Get the inside right

1.  “To know another human being in their essence, you don’t really need to know anything about them — their past, their history, their story.”

2. “If there were nothing but thought in you, you wouldn’t even know you are thinking. You would be like a dreamer who doesn’t know he is dreaming. When you know you are dreaming, you are awake within the dream.”

3. “You are not the voice in your mind, but the one who is aware of it.”

4. “The ultimate truth of who you are is not I am this or I am that, but I Am.”

5. “What a liberation to realize that the “voice in my head” is not who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that.”

6. “Living up to an image that you have of yourself or that other people have of you is inauthentic living.”

7. “You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level.”

8. “Anything that you resent and strongly react to in another is also in you.”

9. “You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.”

10. “To end the misery that has afflicted the human condition for thousands of years, you have to start with yourself and take responsibility for your inner state at any given moment. That means now.”


Eckhart Tolle’s Quotes On Present Moment

Most humans are never fully present in the Now

11. “Let me say it again: the present moment is all you ever have.”

12. “The moment you realize you are not present, you are present. Whenever you are able to observe your mind, you are no longer trapped in it. Another factor has come in, something that is not of the mind: the witnessing presence.”

13. “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.”

14. “The power for creating a better future is contained in the present moment: You create a good future by creating a good present.”

15. “Always say “yes” to the present moment. What could be more futile, more insane, than to create inner resistance to what already is? what could be more insane than to oppose life itself, which is now and always now? Surrender to what is. Say “yes” to life — and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.”

16. “People don’t realize that now is all there ever is; there is no past or future except as memory or anticipation in your mind.”

People Don't Realize

17. “The past has no power over the present moment.”

18. “All negativity is caused by an accumulation of psychological time and denial of the present.”

19. “To offer no resistance to life is to be in a state of grace, ease, and lightness. This state is then no longer dependent upon things being in a certain way, good or bad. It seems almost paradoxical, yet when your inner dependency on form is gone, the general conditions of your life, the outer forms, tend to improve greatly. Things, people, or conditions that you thought you needed for your happiness now come to you with no struggle or effort on your part, and you are free to enjoy and appreciate them – while they last. All those things, of course, will still pass away, cycles will come and go, but with dependency gone, there is no fear of loss anymore. Life flows with ease.”
