Eckhart Tolle Continued!

Eckhart Tolle -

"Someone showed me an annual prospectus of a large spiritual organization. When I looked through it, I was impressed with the wide choice of interesting seminars and workshops. It reminded me of a smorgasbord, one of those Scandinavian buffets where you can take your pick from a huge variety of enticing dishes. The person asked me whether I would recommend one or two courses. "I don't know," I said. "They all look so interesting. But I do know this," I added. "Be aware of your breathing as often as you are able, whenever you remember. Do that for one year, and it will be more powerfully transformative than attending all these courses. And it is free."

He continues that awareness of breathing "takes attention away from thinking and creates space." It is a way to generate consciousness, to manifest consciousness, here, where we live. He defines Presence as making space.

He writes of "three modalities of awakened doing." They are acceptance, enjoyment, and enthusiasm.

I am providing teasers here. If anything appeals in these snippets from this book, you know where to find it it is all around.
