CREATE A BETTER LIFE

Top 10 Takeaways from “A New Earth: Create A Better Life” By Eckhart Tolle


1. “ The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.”

2. “ Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”

3. “Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment.”

4. “Give up defining yourself — to yourself or to others. You won’t die. You will come to life. And don’t be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it’s their problem. Whenever you interact with people, don’t be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.”

5. “What a liberation to realize that the “voice in my head” is not who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that.”

6. “Living up to an image that you have of yourself or that other people have of you is inauthentic living.”

7. “ Don’t Seek Happiness. If you seek it, you won’t find it, because seeking is the antithesis of happiness”

8. “When you don’t cover up the world with words and labels, a sense of the miraculous returns to your life that was lost a long time ago when humanity, instead of using thought, became possessed by thought.”

9. “This is my secret,” he said. “I don’t mind what happens.”

10. “Authentic human interactions become impossible when you lose yourself in a role.”
