A Happier You - My Favorite Words of Wisdom from EckHart Tolle

  • Don't seek happiness.
If you seek it, you won't find it, because seeking, is the antithesis of happiness. Happiness is ever elusive,but freedom from unhappiness is attainable now, by facing what is rather than making up stories about it.

  • Why Do anxiety, stress or negativity arise?
Because you turned away from the present moment.
And why did you do that?
You thought something else was more important.
One Small error, one misperception,creates a world of suffering.

  • The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.
Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking.
Separate them from the situation which is always neutral,which always is as it is.
There is the situation or the fact and here are my thoughts about it.
Instead of making up stories, stay with the facts.
For Example, "I am ruined" is a story. It limits you and prevents you from taking effective action.
" I have 50 cents left in my bank account" is a fact.
Facing facts is always empowering.

  • Wherever you look, there is plenty of circumstantial evidence for the reality of time.

A rotting apple,your face in the bathroom mirror compared to your face in a photo taken 30 years ago, yet you never find any direct evidence, you never experience time itself. You only never experience the present moment.

  • The more shared past there is in a relationship,the more present you need to be;
otherwise,you will be forced to relive the past again and again
