eckhart_tolle_fiimplinit-ro_1. The being is not only beyond, but also inside each life form, as an invisible and indestructible essence.

2. The beginning of freedom is the understanding that you are not the “thinker.” The moment you begin to observe the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes active.

3. Get used to asking yourself: “What is going on in me at the moment?” The question will tell you the right direction. But do not analyze, you only notice.

4. Watch for the appearance of any defensive feeling. What are you defending? An illusory identity, an image in your mind, a fictional entity.

5. Realize that the present moment is all you have. Turn the Moment Now into the main focus of attention of your life. Always say “yes” to the present moment.

6. Put an end to the old pattern of denial of the Now moment and resistance to the present moment. Make it a habit to withdraw your attention from the past and future whenever you are no longer needed.

7. Presence is the key to freedom, so only now can you be free.

8. Make full use of your senses. Be where you are. Look around. Just look, don’t interpret.

9. When you create a problem, you create pain. All it takes is a simple choice, a simple decision: “Whatever happens, I will not cause myself any more pain. I’m not going to create any more problems.”

10. Do not worry about the outcome of your action, but pay attention to the action itself. The results will come by themselves. This is a powerful spiritual practice.

11. Let the past die every moment. You don’t need it. Refer to the past only when this is absolutely relevant to the present situation. Feel the power of this moment and the fullness of Being. Feel your own presence.

12. Be aware of your breathing. Feel the air coming in and out of your body.

13. Give up waiting as a mental state. When you find yourself slipping into waiting… quickly get out of it. Enter the present moment. Simply be and enjoy the feeling of life.

14. In your life, never pay 100% of your attention to the outside world and mind. Keep a part inside.

15. Observe your inner endurance. Notice your attachment to pain. Notice the strange pleasure you derive from the feeling of unhappiness. Notice the impulse to talk and think about it. Resistance will give way when you become aware of these things.

16. Whether you live alone or have a partner, the key remains this: to be present and to intensify your presence through an even deeper concentration of attention in the Now moment.

17. When you know that you do not have peace, the consciousness of this creates a space of tranquility that surrounds your lack of peace in a loving and affectionate embrace, which then turns the lack of peace into peace.

18. At every moment, keep the consciousness of the moment, especially the consciousness of your inner state.

19. Learn to express what you feel without blaming

20. All you have to do is fully accept the present moment. Then you will feel good here and now and you will be at peace with yourself.

21. Stop resisting life. This is how you will find peace.

22. Observe any plant or any animal and let them teach you what it means to accept what it is and abandon yourself in the moment of the Now.

23. Whenever you feel the negativity appearing inside you, pay attention to the Here and the Now. Be present.

24. Do not seek peace. Do not look for any state other than the one you are in now. Because in this way you will create inner conflict and unconscious resistance.

25. There is no need to accept an unpleasant life situation. You fully recognize that you want to get out of that situation. Then narrow your attention to the present moment without labeling it mentally in any way.

26. If your life situation seems unsatisfactory or even intolerable to you, only by abandonment will you be able to break the pattern of unconscious resistance that perpetuates the situation.

27. If the whole life situation is unsatisfactory or unpleasant, extract from it only this moment and abandon yourself to what it is.

28. The spiritual dimension becomes a living reality in your life only when you abandon yourself.

29. When you say “NO” to a person or situation, let the answer come from understanding, and not from a reaction. Let it be a “no” free of reaction, a “no” of high quality, free from any negativism, so as not to create such a new suffering.

30. Consciously chosen enlightenment means giving up attachment to the past and the future and turning the Now moment into the main focus of attention of your life. It means choosing to stay in the state of presence, and not in time.

31. You cannot truly forgive, neither others nor yourself, as long as your sense of identity derives from the past. Only by having access to the power of the Now, which is your own power, can there be true forgiveness.

32. The truth is that the only power that exists is contained in the present moment: the power of your own presence.


Choose the ones you resonate with the most and apply them to your life. Once you manage to tick one you can move on to the next one and so on. A first step would be to choose to start with a point that you like and introduce it into your daily life. Notice what the results are, and then move on to the next one.
