Eckhart Tolle's message is pretty simple 'all we have is the present moment so you might as well make friends with it'.
He talks about seeing the ego from the perspective of the ovserver and remembering that all we really have is this present moment. That any suffering is a creation of resisting this moment and wishing it to be different.
I'm a big fan of Eckhart's work and have seen him live before. Tonight he offered me nothing short of the miracle of remembering my truth and releasing myself from a place of suffering and coming back to my true blissful and joyous state...
You propably wouldn't expect it, but Eckhart Tolle is somewhat the unexpected comedian.
He effortlessly brings humor to our human state and the many commonalities we share in the struggles of this human existance, especially when we are unconscious, spiritually speaking.
He is nothing short of extraordinary as he sits so peacefully in the middle of the stage as quiet as a mouse. Yet his energy and wisdom fill the planitarium as he begins to channel his words and guidance, that we are so excitedly seeking.
About half an hour in, Eckhart ask's us to take part in a 'non-meditation' as he called it, a practice of presence.
He leads us to close our eyes and bring our attention to our mind.
He then asks us to release any ideas of the past.
He asks us to let go of what we know about ourselves, our name, email address, lables we have placed on who we are, and of any ides of how we need the future to be.
As I sat there in the warm, low lit planitarium and closed my eyes, I felt like it was just Eckhart and I as his words hit every ell of my being.
I began to see EVERYTHING I knew about myself unhook and release, and instantly I began to spin.
Holding onto my seat I realised how much I was grounding myself into my body and this earthly world via these lables, and how ungrounded I felt without them.
As i began to focus on my breath, I sunk into my soul space and felt a divine expansive release and connection to my truth.
My experience was incredibly profound, and I cried as i explained my experience to my hubby as we walked out after the event.
If you are a fan of Echart's I reccoment not even hesitating at the opportunity to experience him live. What an incredible shining light on his earth right now when we need it the most.
I'm beyond grateful for the gift that he offer's us n remembering that the NOW is all we really have and the abundant beauty that exists in that simplicity.
Big love and hugs,
