False Awakenings - What Are They and How Are They Useful?

I've been trying to read Eckhart Tolle since he was first on Oprah. I can't read it. It's like I'm reading another language, but I don't know that language. Anyone else have that problem? Roger Don't try to conceptually understand what is written. Just read it without any expectation and preconceived ideas. Let your mind be absent when readin …more Don't try to conceptually understand what is written. Let your mind be absent when reading. In other words, read without reading.

Some words will resonate with your being, and some won't. That's ok. From reading the quotes of this book it becomes quite apparent that the ideas he uses are not his own but borrowed from Stoicism, Herman Hesse, Karl Jaspers etc. Does he make any reference to those thinkers or does he use those concepts as his own?

Okay so I had high expectations for this book. Normally I don't really go for Oprah selections but I heard so many great things about it plus I am totally into new agey type things, I thought it would be right up my alley. My problem with this book was twofold. First, a lot of the ideas weren't new to me. Living in the present you are not walking across the room to get a book, you are walking across the room , not letting your ego attach itself to things that is not "my car" or "my house" , etc Okay so I had high expectations for this book.

Living in the present you are not walking across the room to get a book, you are walking across the room , not letting your ego attach itself to things that is not "my car" or "my house" , etc. And for the most part I agree with those ideals. I think because I do a lot of yoga and it's all about being with yourself in that moment, not judging based on what you did in class yesterday or last week, and not thinking about what you need to buy at the grocery store, I've already applied a lot of this to other areas in my life.

And this is probably why I love yoga so much - I can totally get into that place. So I was reading the book going yeah, yeah, yeah I get it and I felt like he repeated himself a thousand times. My second problem is Of course it's bad to get yourself totally wrapped in being "x and y's mom" or "z employee of this company" but why is bad to feel pride in that? It makes it harder to lose something if you've attached it to your ego, but I am okay with that. My parents are MY parents and assuming they precede my in death, it will be so hard but I am fine with experiencing a whole range of emotions in this life -- being excessively happy and excessively sad.

My kids are MY kids and even though that will likely make it harder for me when they are off to college and doing their own thing, I'm fine with that! View all 67 comments. Mar 31, Martha rated it it was amazing. What is so powerful about this book is not that there is much new material here. The difference is in how the author explains his points. Finally, we understand! I see you all nodding! This is it. Throughout the entire book, he reiterates the same points. Attachment to things drops away by itself when you no longer seek to find yourself in them. Even though you have a goal, what you are doing in the present moment needs to remain the focal point of your attention; otherwise, you will fall out of alignment with universal purpose.

Make sure your vision or goal is not an inflated image of yourself and therefore a concealed form of ego, such as wanting to become a movie star, a famous writer, or a wealthy entrepreneur. Also make sure your goal is not focused on having this or that, such as a mansion by the sea, your own company, or ten million dollars in the bank. Instead, make sure your goals are dynamic, that is to say, point toward an activity that you are engaged in and through which you are connected to other human beings as well as to the whole. Instead of seeing yourself as a famous actor and writer and so on, see yourself inspiring countless people with your work and enriching their lives.

Feel how that activity enriches or deepens not only your life but that of countless others. Feel yourself being an opening through which energy flows from the unmanifested Source of all life through you for the benefit of all. All this implies that your goal or vision is then already a reality within you, on the level of mind and of feeling. Enthusiasm is the power that transfers the mental blueprint into the physical dimension. That is the creative use of mind, and that is why there is no wanting involved. You cannot manifest what you want; you can only manifest what you already have. You many get what you want through hard work and stress, but that is not the way of the new earth.

Tolle's penmanship allows difficult philosophical, psychological principles to come together simplified. This book simplifies complex notions of western approaches with an eastern point of view on metaphysics. I think it is a helpful tool for those cynical about the current state of humanity. I also believe it could be a great entry book into Eastern philosophy. He seems to Americanize complex metaphysical approach Oprahmercial. He seems to Americanize complex metaphysical approaches of being thereby creating access.

Oprah is a maverick bookseller and I can say that this is one of her greatest gifts to her audiences. She has found a tool to help readers enable their greater selves. I am deeply grateful that this book is available to the masses. The more philosophy, Western and Eastern is accessible to the masses the better off we will all be. This book is trying to do just that and I can say Tolle accomplishes the goals set for in the writings.

If one is familiar with eastern concepts of spirituality this book will reinforce the ideas, if one is familiar with basic psychology and western philosophy one will be pleasantly reminded of the insights into human nature. I would buy this book and give it to everyone who comes to me with existenal anxiety and seeking answers about the purpose of their life. One notion reinforced in this book is that these answers are not out side of you but are within yourself.

This is a difficult concept to practice, especially for Americans in that our culture reinforces the notion that acquisition of external means will lead to internal gratification. Sometimes the best books state concepts that you are unable to articulate. This book does this for me. At the end of my philosophy studies I wanted to seek out reconciliation between eastern ideas and western ideologies this book successfully does this with an amazing ease. This made me respect his mind even more.

He is a gifted intellect and is doing a great service for humanity by this text. If one wants more than a self help book, tired of Zen lyrics that seem to dissipate after reading them and wants a breath of fresh air to challenge your cynicism in the current state of humanity this book will satisfy. This book is soul food. I like reading what is extremely popular becuase it seems to let you believe you are connecting with many minds at once. Instead of being locked in your own consciousness. This book creates the bridge towards the path of connecting to the View all 11 comments. Feb 02, Lain rated it did not like it. I opened this book, hoping to find something inspiring, eye-opening, and life-changing.

Instead, it appears to be filled with the same old New Age babble about self-actualization and "each being the part of the one. The same old, same old about non-judgment, embracing all things, blah blah blah. Call me crazy, but I think I've read this about times before in every issue of New Age Journa I opened this book, hoping to find something inspiring, eye-opening, and life-changing.

Not only that, but it was boring. I had to force myself to keep reading. I have no idea why Oprah picked this, other than she must have some merchandise tie-in in mind. View all 27 comments. Feb 10, Laurie rated it it was amazing. Loved this book. It has changed how I look at life. I read a lot of "self-help", "spiritual insight" books and this is one of the best I have ever read. I just finished it and I want to read it again. His writing is very easy to understand --clear and simple and he shares insights that you can use in your life immediately.

IT is chock full of fascinating insights on every page. Some of my favorite points are: 1. The pain-body--a "psychic parasite" inside of us that feeds on drama and enjoys negati Loved this book. The pain-body--a "psychic parasite" inside of us that feeds on drama and enjoys negative thoughts. Once your mind is taken over by the pain-body, your thoughts will become negative.

You will believe all the distorted,negative thoughts and you will keep thinking them over and over again. The way to be free of the pain-body is to recognize it for the psychic parasite that it is and realize it is not you. When you are angry or frustrated with people because you believe they are withholding praise or appreciation from you--try giving love and appreciation to them. You cannot receive what you do not give. Outflow determines inflow. Understanding that no matter what is going on in your life--this too, will pass-- and being aware and totally in the present. When you can sense your inner stillness and feel your own Presence, then you are free from ego and can live a better quality life. Recognize patterns that are not working --ie: giving your opinion when no one has asked for it, demanding recognition, being concerned about how someone else sees you, trying to make an impression on others through--knowledge, good looks, status, physical strength, etc.

If you notice any of the above patterns in yourself--try letting go of them and see what happens. When doing becomes infused with the timeless quality of Being, that is success. Unless you are present, you lose yourself in what you do. There are three ways you can align your life with the power of the universe: acceptance, enjoyment and enthusiasm. If you can neither enjoy or bring acceptance to what you do--stop. Otherwise you are not taking responsibility for consciousness which means you are not taking responsibility for life.

Just as egoic collectives pull you into unconsciousness and suffering, the enlightened collective can be a vortex for consciousness that will accelerate the planetary shift. You live with a mental image of yourself, a conceptual self that you have a relationship with. Life itself becomes conceptualized and separated from who you are when you speak of "my life. It is amazing how much a little mental concept like "my" can generate. He encourages us to focus on that beingness, to breathe, to be fully present in every moment. Our purpose is whatever we are doing at any present moment. Do whatever you're doing to the best of your ability and with all your being, even if that means just typing this out. He also says to recognize our ego for what it is. It's not who we are.

The feelings other people have about us, the feelings we have about ourselves, they don't matter in the grand scheme of things. View all 9 comments. Aug 14, Jen rated it it was amazing. To me, this book is pretty much a great overview on what is wrong with the world- the human ego. In a weird way, I regret ever having read this book because it opened my eyes so greatly to the hidden egocentric motivation behind every human thought and action that I can't stop seeing the underlying ego behind everything, and everyone, I encounter. I think this book should be required reading for everyone; the problem is, many people will read this book and see others in it, but not themselves.

T To me, this book is pretty much a great overview on what is wrong with the world- the human ego. Today, more than ever, we are plagued by a culture where everyone is obsessed with being "right" and in the processing making everybody else "wrong. I wish everyone took a moment in their day to question their thoughts and what the motivating factor is that drives them.

That is the only way to truly recognize your own ego in action. As Mr. Tolle states, you'll never get rid of it, but my becoming more aware of it, it becomes easier to detach yourself from long-held beliefs that do not serve a greater purpose other than to give you a false illusion of who you think you are. Our attachment to this false illusion only serves to spew out superiority over others while contributing nothing in return.

I have not read The Power of Now, but this one really resonated with me and current challenges in personal and planetary transformation. I loved how he snuck in bits from major religions and explained their universal relevance outside the context of their religious context. There are a plethora of self-help books and new age spiritual awakening guides that all claim to have the power to change your life in a positive way; they all suggest a new way of thinking is required to alter your reality: they suggest that something more is needed to reach the next level of human consciousness.

The problem with most of these books is that such ideas are extremely difficult to define accurately in words. They feel vague and often like they are scratching the surface of large c There are a plethora of self-help books and new age spiritual awakening guides that all claim to have the power to change your life in a positive way; they all suggest a new way of thinking is required to alter your reality: they suggest that something more is needed to reach the next level of human consciousness. They feel vague and often like they are scratching the surface of large concepts that they cannot quite grasp. Simply put, the writers cannot quite articulate their ideas well enough to their readers. Because how does one precisely describe the moment of an acute realisation?

How to you encapsulate a spiritual awakening with words never mind pave the way to it? I believe Eckhart Tolle is one of the best in the business. His words are some of the closest I have read that describe such concepts. And this is because of his deep understanding of theology, which is not tarnished by dogma or prejudice. He understands the healing quality present in religion and he uses it in an attempt to teach mankind, to try and make him more awake. I enjoyed reading his ideas here, and I will keep reading his works to see what more wisdom he has to impart. Mar 07, Carrie rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Self-help seekers. Shelves: all-time-favorites. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here.

I was a skeptic at first glance. It was only moments after i read about "feeling my inner-body" that i was feeling my pillow and sleeping soundly and this is no small feat. However, the further i got into the book, the more i enjoyed it. The self-help author, highlights the benefits of life spent "in the moment" and gives concrete exercises to help 'transcend our ego-based consciousness'. This he argues, is the key to personal happiness and fulfillment. Illuminating- it gives something to aspire I was a skeptic at first glance. Illuminating- it gives something to aspire to although i generally fall into the traps he advises against. Bring a pen for notes in the margins with an open mind. Particularly interesting were his notes on parenting.

I listed my favorite passages Because this is the experience you are having at this moment. When you are completely identified with a role, you confuse a pattern of behavior with who you are, and you take yourself very seriously Authentic human interaction becomes impossible when you lose yourself in a role. But with the truth revealed I'm afraid they are not our friends as we once though. Biblical prophecy reigns supreme. Advance and overwhelm once again!! With project Veritas turning the heat on Communist teachers, and parents getting involved and angry at the school system, I'm really starting to realize that the plan isn't about the military taking over and fixing things for everyone. The plan seems to be about everyone getting involved in the local communities and state governments so that we don't get fucked over while everyone isn't watching.

And then when those local yokels get enough traction they will snuffed out at the fed election level via Dominion and every other conceivable method. No, something needs to be done and soon. Yes Padawan, Trust the Plan and be patient! If you want to do something right now, then get off your ass and do it! But until then, or until you figure shit out for yourself instead of letting us Anons or the intel shows do it, deal with it and be patient.

Same time though he does keep me posted with current events. I do understand that he has to repeat things a lot of us already know for those new followers. As far as Q goes, three year deltas have been pretty promising. Trump saying "Fix First" was in response to various people we've considered on our side, such as Jim Jordan, telling people Trump wants to announce a run. Spoiler alert: if you think "The Plan" is like the prophecies in the bible taken liberally then be prepared to wait at least plus years when ever they say things like "things that are about to take place" Revelation and "this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. We are still waiting for most of those things to happen if you take bible prophecies literally at all.

Taking bible prophecy literally is the biggest and most historical example of moving the goalposts beyond the point of absurdity and a major reason why a huge number of people think Q is just a religious wacko thing. My body is ready. Don't blame this thread on shills, blame it on a Podcaster framing a narrative loosely and connecting the dots with the same info we have that has been hyping everyone up for years.
