- Part 1 here
This is from the book ‘Power of Now’ by Eckhart Tolle.
11.There is nothing wrong with striving to improve your life situations. You can improve your life situations but you cannot improve your life. Life is primary life is deepest inner being . It is already whole, complete, perfect.
12. Beyond the beauty of external form, there is more here something that cannot be named,something ineffable, something deep,inner,holy essence. Wherever and whenever there is beauty this beauty inner essence shines through..
13. Forgiveness is to relinquish your grievance and so to let go of grief. It happens naturally once you realise that that your griveance serves no purpose except to strengthen a false sense of self. Forgiveness is to offer no resistance to life to allow life to live through you. The alternatives are pain and suffering, a greatly restricted flow of life energy, and in many cases physical disease.
14. Your task in not to search for love but to find a portal through which love can enter.
15. Split a piece of wood; I am there. Lift up a stone and you will find me there.
16. If there was no illusion there would be no enlightenment.
17. True salvation is fulfillment, peace,life in all of its fullness. It is to be who you are , to feel within you the good that has no opposite,the joy of being that depends on nothing outside itself.
18.It is through the world and ultimately through you that unmanifasted know itself. You are here to enable the divine purpose of the universe to unfold. That is how important you are.
19. You see time as the means to salvation whereas in truth it is the greatest obstacle to salvation. You think you cannot get their from where and who you are at this moment because you are not complete or good enough,but the truth is that there and now is the only point from where you can get there. You get there by realising you are already there. You find God the moment you realise you don’t need to seek God . So there is no only way to salvation ; any condition can be used . No particular condition is needed. However there is only one point of access. The NOW.
20. LOVE is state of being. It is to feel the presence of that one life deep within yourself and within all creatures. To be it. Therefore all LOVE IS LOVE OF GOD.
