our  presence  may  be

priceless

or worthless


PRICELESS – IF  WE  DECIDE – to  LISTEN ACCEPTANTLY

worthless  – IF  WE  DECIDE – to  LISTEN TO CRITICALLY


-WERNER MEYBAUM

Sitting in a circle
Sharing listening with music in between


When we listen

we listen

and that is all we do


Quotes
by Eckhart TolleI cannot tell you
any spiritual truth
that deep within
you don’t know already.

All
I can do
is remind you
of what you have forgotten

The mind is a superb instrument
if used rightly.Used wrongly, however,
it becomes very destructive.

To put it more accurately,
it is not so much
that you use your mind wrongly—
you usually don’t use it at all.
It uses you.

Eckhart Tolle

all the things that truly matter
beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace
arise from beyond the mindEckhart Tolle

All true artists,
whether they know it or not,
create from a place of nomind,
from inner stillnessEckhart Tolle

Emotion arises
at the place
where mind and body meet.It is the body’s reaction
to your mind —

or you might say,
a reflection
of your mind
in the body

Eckhart Tolle

It wasn’t through the mind,
through thinking,
that the miracle
that is
life on earth
or your body
were created
and are being sustainedEckhart Tolle

You may not yet be able
to bring your unconscious mind activity
into awareness as thoughts,but it will always be reflected
in the body as an emotion,
and of this
you can become aware.

Eckhart Tolle

Love, joy, and peace
cannot flourish
until you have freed yourself
from mind dominanceEckhart Tolle

Pleasure
is always derived
from something outside you,whereas joy
arises from within

Eckhart Tolle

Pain
is inevitable
as long as you are identified with your mindEckhart Tolle
Nobody’s life
is entirely free of pain and sorrow.Isn’t it a question of learning to live with them
rather than trying to avoid them?

Eckhart Tolle

The greater part of human pain
is unnecessary.It is selfcreated
as long as the unobserved mind
runs your life.

Eckhart Tolle

The pain
that you create now
is always some form of nonacceptance,
some form of unconscious resistance
to what is.On the level of thought,
the resistance is some form of judgment.

On the emotional level,
it is some form of negativity.

The intensity of the pain
depends on the degree of resistance
to the present moment,
and this in turn
depends on how strongly you are
identified with your mind.

Eckhart Tolle

Where there is anger,
there is always pain underneathThe psychological condition of fear
is divorced from any concrete and true immediate danger.

It comes in many forms:
unease, worry, anxiety, nervousness,
tension, dread, phobia,
and so on.

This kind of psychological fear
is always of something that might happen,
not of something that is happening now.

Eckhart Tolle

an emotion
is the body’s reaction
to your mindEckhart Tolle

Power
over others
is weakness disguised
as strength.True power is within,
and it is available to you now

Eckhart Tolle

The most common ego identifications
have to do with possessions,the work you do,
social status and recognition,
knowledge and education,

physical appearance, special abilities, relationships,
person and family history,

belief systems,
and often also political, nationalistic,
racial, religious, and other collective identifications.

None of these is you.

Eckhart Tolle

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

Eckhart Tolle

When you are present,
you can allow the mind to be as it is
without getting entangled in it.The mind in itself
is a wonderful tool.

Dysfunction sets in
when you seek your self in it
and mistake it
for who you are

Eckhart Tolle

To be identified with your mind
is to be trapped in time:the compulsion
to live almost exclusively
through memory and anticipation

Eckhart Tolle

Life is now.

There was never a time
when your life was not now,
nor will there ever be

Eckhart Tolle

The quality of your consciousness
at this moment
is what shapes the future —which,
of course,
can only be experienced as the Now

Eckhart Tolle

Nothing ever happened in the past;
it happened in the Now.Nothing will ever happen in the future;
it will happen in the Now

Eckhart Tolle

Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry
— all forms of fear —are cause by too much future,
and not enough presence.

Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances,
sadness, bitterness, and all forms of nonforgiveness

are caused by too much past,
and not enough presence

Eckhart Tolle

To be free of time
is to be free of the psychological need of past
for your identity and future
for your fulfillmentEckhart Tolle

Be at least as interested in what goes on inside you
as what happens outside.If you get the inside right,
the outside will fall into place

Eckhart Tolle

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

Eckhart Tolle

You cannot find yourself
by going into the past.You can find yourself
by coming into the present

. . .

Words in themselves
are not important.

They are not the Truth;
they only point to it

Eckhart Tolle

Don’t get stuck on the level of words.

A word is no more than a means to an end.

It’s an abstraction.

Not unlike a signpost,
it points beyond itself

Eckhart Tolle

At the deepest level of Being,
you are one with all that isEckhart Tolle

The ultimate purpose of the world
lies not within the world
but in the transcendence
of the worldEckhart Tolle

Relationships …
do not cause pain and unhappiness.They bring out the pain and unhappiness
that is already in you

Eckhart Tolle

You find God
the moment you realize
that you don’t need to seek GodEckhart Tolle

As far as inner transformation is concerned,
there is nothing you can do about it.You cannot transform yourself,
and you certainly cannot transform your partner
or anybody else.

All you can do
is create a space for transformation to happen,
for grace and love to enter

Eckhart Tolle

Whenever anything negative happens to you,
there is a deep lesson concealed within it,
although you may not see it at the timeEckhart Tolle

It seems
that most people
need to experience
a great deal of suffering
before they will relinquish resistance and accept —
before they will forgive.Eckhart Tolle

You must have failed deeply
on some level or experienced some deep loss or pain
to be drawn to the spiritual dimension.Or perhaps
your very success
became empty and meaningless
and so turned out to be a failure

Eckhart Tolle

Nothing out there
will ever satisfy you
except temporarily and superficially,but
you may need to experience
many disappointments
before you realize that truth
