100+ Eckhart Tolle's Quotes To Help You Power Through Life

42. “The ego says, ‘I shouldn’t have to suffer,’ and that thought makes you suffer so much more. It is a distortion of the truth, which is always paradoxical. The truth is that you need to say yes to suffering before you can transcend it.”

43. “In surrender, you no longer need ego defenses and false masks. You become very simple, very real. “That’s dangerous,” says the ego. “You’ll get hurt. You’ll become vulnerable.” What the ego doesn’t know, of course, is that only through the letting go of resistance, through becoming “vulnerable,” can you discover your true and essential invulnerability.”

44. “When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation or accept it. All else is madness.”

45. “The word enlightenment conjures up the idea of some superhuman accomplishment, and the ego likes to keep it that way, but it is simply your natural state of felt oneness with Being.”

46. “The most common ego identifications have to do with possessions, the work you do, social status and recognition, knowledge and education, physical appearance, special abilities, relationships, person and family history, belief systems, and often nationalistic, racial, religious, and other collective identifications. None of these is you.”

47. “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.”

48. “In essence, you are neither inferior nor superior to anyone. True self-esteem and true humility arise out of that realization. In the eyes of the ego, self-esteem and humility are contradictory. In truth, they are one and the same.”

49. “Suppression of the feminine principle has enabled The Ego to gain absolute supremacy in the collective human psyche.”

50. “The decision to make the present moment into your friend is the end of the ego.”

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

57. “People tend to dwell more on negative things than on good things. So the mind then becomes obsessed with negative things, with judgments, guilt, and anxiety produced by thoughts about the future and so on.”

58. “The moment that judgment stops through acceptance of what it is, you are free of the mind. You have made room for love, for joy, for peace.”

59. “There’s something in everybody that longs for that awakening to be more true to yourself.”

60. “When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation or accept it. All else is madness.”

 

Eckhart Tolle’s Quotes On Thoughts

62. “If you are in a state of intense presence you are free of thought, yet highly alert. If your conscious attention sinks below a certain level, thought rushes in, the mental noise returns, stillness is lost, you’re back in time.”
