Words of Wisdom from Eckhart Tolle


Eckhart Tolle is the author of The Power of Now, A New Earth, and other brilliant works.

The first time I heard about Eckhart Tolle was about 4 years ago when I was standing in the kitchen of Robert & Kim Kiyosaki one Saturday morning, and Robert happened to walk in.

He had just come from a book store and was carrying about 6 books in his arms. They were all the same book, The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle.

Lucky me! I happened to be at the right place at the right time, and as Robert set the books down on the counter, he handed me one.

Later I also found an audio version and listened to the book, with Eckhart Tolle himself narrating. He has a peaceful voice, and I enjoyed listening to his other books and any other lecture of his that I could find.

I love the way Eckhart Tolle expresses his thoughts and beliefs, and in that light I share with you here a sampling of my favorite quotes from his books and speeches:

People love to hear the truth; the moment you tell the truth there is connection.

The teacher doesn’t teach; he/she just opens the space to let the teaching happen.

Compassion is the awareness of a deep bond between yourself and all creatures.

Enlightenment means choosing to dwell in the state of presence rather than in time. It means saying yes to what is.

    I am so greatful to Eckhart Tolle and Oprah for turning me onto Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor and her beautiful book “”My Stroke of Insight””. Her story is amazing and her gift to all of us is a book purchase away I’m happy to say.

    Dr Taylor was a Harvard brain scientist when she had a stroke at age 37. What was amazing was that her left brain was shut down by the stroke – where language and thinking occur – but her right brain was fully functioning. She experienced bliss and nirvana and the way she writes about it (or talks about it in her now famous TED talk) is incredible.

    What I took away from Dr. Taylor’s book above all, and why I recommend it so highly, is that you don’t have to have a stroke or take drugs to find the deep inner peace that she talks about. Her book explains how. “”I want what she’s having””, and thanks to this wonderful book, I can! Thank you Dr. Taylor, and thank you Eckhart and Oprah.
