This is from Eckhart Tolle ‘ Power of now’
21. Love is not selective,just as the sun is not selective. It is not exclusive. Exclusivity is not love of God but love of ego. However, the intensity with which true love is felt can vary.
22.As soon as mind and mind identification return you are no longer yourself but a mental image of yourself, and start playing games and roles again to get your ego needs met. You are in a human mind again pretending to be a human being.
23.It is the power of your presence. Once you know that you are responsible for your inner space now nobody else is and that the past cannot prevail against the power of now.
24.In enlightenment “you” and “yourself” merge into one. You don’t judge yourself, don’t feel sorry for yourself, not proud of yourself, not hate yourself and so on.
25.Growth is usually considered positive but nothing can grow forever. If growth, of whatever kind, were to go on and on,it would eventually became monstrous and destructive. Dissolution is needed for new growth to happen. One cannot exist without the other.
26.The same condition that was good yesterday or last year has suddenly or gradually turned into bad. The same condition that makes you happy,then makes you unhappy. The prosperity of today become empty consumerism of tomorrow.
27. Happiness and unhappiness are usually one. Only illusion of time separate them.
28.All that arises passes away. 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 condition. Thus have I found peace.
29.No other life forms on planet knows negativity only humans, just as no other life forms violates and poisions the Earth that sustain it.
30.When you accept what is, every moment is bes. That is enlightenment.
