December 18th, 2014 No comments

Below you find quotes extracted from Tolle’s book New Earth concerning the topics of: Resentment, grievances and forgiveness ..  Other concepts mentioned below include: The negativeness of indignation, being offended, complaining, bitterness, the ego, labeling, unconsciousness, finding faults, others, anger, hurt, enemies, superiority, upset, painbodies … Followed by how to Forgive.

.

Concepts and lines have been extracted, rearranged, and important words highlighted.  Some things were rephrased, others were pasted “as is” .. When things are pasted un-modified, “as is”, they will not have quotation marks.  I take “no” credit for any of this, these are all Tolle’s concepts.

Resentment

 

Resentment is the emotion that goes with:
1- complaining and
2- the mental labeling of people
These add energy into and feed the ego.

 

Resentment may also be accompanied by stronger emotions such as:
1- anger or
2- some other form of upset.
This charges the resentment energetically more.

Resentment means:
To feel bitter, indignant, aggrieved, or offended.

 

You might resent:
Labels you apply to other people, such as other people’s greed, dishonesty, lack of integrity, or actions such as: what they are doing, did, did not do, said, have not said.

Quotes from New Earth: Part 1 – On Success, Abundance, Work and Money

December 7th, 2014 No comments


 

Below you will find a compilation (part 1) of what Eckhart Tolle says in his book New Earth on the issues of success, abundance, work and money…  Other words of interest are: Energy, flow, “not enough”, and who you “really are”, and surrender.  Some parts have been highlighted for you. 

Please note, I am no guru or teacher.  I’m only presenting quotes that I liked (more or less) and ones that seemed to summarize Tolle’s point of view.  The paragraphs below span the entire book, and are not in any particular order, beyond what I felt was appropriate. 

 

To start you off, let’s look at the quote about ego:

 

It [the ego] consists of thought and emotion, of a bundle of memories you identify with as “me and my story,” of habitual roles you play without knowing it, of collective identifications such as nationality, religion, race, social class, or political allegiance. It also contains personal identifications, not only with possessions, but also with opinions, external appearance, longstanding resentments, or concepts of yourself as better than or not as good as others, as a success or failure

 

Now, we are ready for the rest of the quotes:

 

The ego’s unconscious core feeling of “not enough” causes it to react to someone else’s success as if that success had taken something away from “me.” It doesn’t know that your resentment of another person’s success curtails your own chances of success. In order to attract success, you need to welcome it wherever you see it.

 

How to be at peace now? By making peace with the present moment. The present moment is the field on which he game of life happens. It cannot happen anywhere else. Once you have made peace with the present moment, see what happens, what you can do or choose to do, or rather what life does through you. There are three words that convey the secret of the art of living, the secret of all success and happiness: One With Life. Being one with life is bieng one with Now. You then realize that you don’t live your life, but life lives you. Life is the dancer, and you are the dance.

  

Who you think you are is also intimately connected with how you see yourself treated by others. Many people complain that others do not treat them well enough. “I don’t get any respect, attention, recognition, acknowledgment,” they say. “I’m being taken for granted.” When people are kind, they suspect hidden motives. “Others want to manipulate me, take advantage of me. Nobody loves me.”
