[1: 2,036 of 10,000] Eckhart’s Point of Staying Awake

In Article on December 5, 2020 at 11:01 AM

There was one video wherein I remembered Eckhart Tolle saying he wanted to stay awake and not to go to bed too soon to enjoy the present moment. I finally understood what he meant. I could feel the flow of joy running through my veins, my mind stops worrying and I could see every single beautiful things surrounding me. I wanted to bathe in that moment of peace and unconditional love.

I don’t do that often though because as a human being, I get tired, I get sleepy, I got work in the morning and I needed my brain well rested to function and produce good works. As much as I wanted to soak the goodness of being truly present, I let go and marvel of the point that sleeping is another form of meditation, releasing any resistance for Life Force to flow through me.

I don’t need to identify with anything because they are not my life, only my life situation.

Excerpt from “The Power of NOW” by Eckhart Tolle:

A Buddhist monk once told me: “All I have learned in the twenty years that I have been a monk I can sum up in one sentence: All that arises passess away. This I know.” What he meant, of course, was this: I have learned to offer no resistance to what is; I have learned to allow the present moment to be and to accept the impermanent nature of all things and conditions. Thus have I found peace.

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 greately. Things, people, or conditions that you thought you needed for your happiness now come to you with no stuggle 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.

The happiness that is derived from some secondary source is never very deep. It is only a pale reflection of the joy of Being, the vibrant peace that you find within as you enter the state of nonresistance. Being takes you beyond the polar opposites of the mind and frees you from dependency on form. Even if everything were to collapse and crumble all around you, you will still feel a deep inner core of peace. You may not be happy, but you will be at peace.

I just have to share the above to everyone with the hope that it brings you the same freedom and joy that I have felt by reading them. I have to take a whole three paragraphs to share word for word as I could never reiterate them so clearly and precise to bring life that we don’t have to identify with anything.

Our thoughts is not us, but we are the one who see the thoughts. Bad life situations are not meant to attack us, it is just is part of a cycle that came to pass. You and I are made of love, and when we’re free, it emerges and we won’t find any reason to harm one another on the contrary we aim for harmony.

ego

I want to know more about EGO, especially my EGO, that I couldn’t exactly grasp. I have been hearing it a lot from Oprah Winfrey and most especially from Eckhart Tolle, but it is quite unclear to me, elusive. I am indeed not yet enlightened but I am not stopping, even if I know my own EGO is actually sabotaging me not to know IT. I just got Eckhart’s book “The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment” with the great expectations that my own devil will not be residing in me without a proper duel with my true self.

It is self-destructive, it is the best excuse to use when we are actually acting crazy! It resides inside my head but it isn’t me, it sounds like me though. I hope I am getting close to understanding it so I may know how to face it head on. I am looking for peace, joy, and being human. To shave off my insecurities, madness, and weaknesses. I am using this down time in my life to strengthen me by unveiling the real me inside.

“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.”
― Eckhart TolleA New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose

I love looking at Eckhart, I don’t entirely understand him yet, but he looked so peaceful. His words on the books are beautiful as he discovered simply BEING. I want that, to have calmness in my head, to be at peace.

“You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you, and allowing that goodness to emerge. But it can only emerge if something fundamental changes in your state of consciousness.”

[1: 1,353 of 10,000] I Am Looking At You

Pedestrian

I am so busy with so many things at work all considering that I should be an adult, got to be responsible that I turned out to be always in a RUSH.

I have been hurt and lonely so many times and there is no one I could confide to, available to listen, understand, or calm me that I bubbled myself and begged God to soothe my crumpled heart.

I’ve always tried to toughen up, focused on my path, that anyone who is not part of my story is blurred out. I walked in places without looking at people’s faces. I didn’t care about their presence. I don’t like connections more than the people I am capable and willing to protect (and believe me they are not a lot) because I am tired of getting hurt, and crying. I aim to be at peace, happy.

Then I read books, a difficult but enlightening book like “The New Earth” by Eckhart Tolle, and I recognised a crazy part of myself and I accepted that I could expand, that I shouldn’t make my life into a reel life drama. Slowly, I am starting to look at stranger’s faces, I am not sure what change will it do to me but I feel like I am trying to make a baby step into embracing an unknown.

I am trying to connect my spirit to the beautiful positive things surrounding me, to learn from my pain and gain wisdom, and worship God who has never left me but so loving and trusting that HE is letting me walk without support, watch me fall and GET UP, begin.
