Top 10 Eckhart Tolle Quotes
1. “For what you do to others, you do to yourself.”
This is a fantastic notion to live by. The way we treat others is always a precise reflection of how we are treating ourselves. This is why self-love is so important; the more love we have for ourselves the more we are able to share this love with others.
2. “Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally.”
Just being in the current moment can be daunting, especially when what you find in the here and now is not to your liking. However, as this quote reminds us, we are never powerless, everything in our lives is a choice.
3. “Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to “die before you die” and find that there is no death.”
For Eckhart, the only ‘real’ death is never knowing who you really are, never understanding your true ‘being’. When you have a true sense of self, this can never die.
4. “Nothing ever happened in the past that can prevent you from being present now; and if the past cannot prevent you from being present now, what power does it have?”
The past is done, the future is never guaranteed; this quote is another soothing reminder that we ought to release the things we have no control over.
5. “Discontent, blaming, complaining, self-pity cannot serve as a foundation for a good future, no matter how much effort you make.”
Instead of complaining about your current situation, make a plan. Do something practical next time you come across an obstacle in life rather than give up. Make gratitude a priority and practical solutions your new, healthy habit.
6. “When you don’t cover up the world with words and labels, a sense of the miraculous returns to your life that was lost a long time ago when humanity, instead of using thought, became possessed by thought.”
Look at the world through a new lens; remove any shallow or snap judgments as you go through life today. Identify and replace language that limits yourself or others to stereotypes. Remove this pressure to be something! Not everything is so black and white.
7. “You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.”
When everything seems to be going wrong, remember that material items don't define happiness. Yes, money and items and status may make you happy. But you could lose everything you own and still have your morals, a belief system, and personality.
8. “In today’s rush we all think too much, seek too much, want too much and forget about the joy of just being.”
Be sure to take a deep breath today and appreciate the world around you. We all can get caught up worrying about the future. It may be you are desperately manifesting your dream job or a perfect relationship. Visualization is a powerful tool but remember to also be grateful for everything you already have in your life too.
9. “Anything that you resent and strongly react to in another is also in you.”
This quote is a reminder that we all have our flaws. Next time you find yourself judging another person, be sure to analyze how and why you have picked up on their particular behavior or comments. Is a colleague being particularly loud, chatty or annoying? Do you yourself have this trait or worry about being too annoying?
10. “I have lived with several Zen masters — all of them cats.”
What can I say… the man loves cats! However, if you’re already a fan of Eckhart you will know that in many of his lessons he will often cite animals, whom he believes to be the perfect example of living in the ‘now’.
