Here are some of our usual Friday quotes. These are all from Eckhart Tolle, author of The Power of Now and A New Earth – Awakening the Purpose in your Life. We, at TDM, felt that they would be quite appropriate in helping people going through divorce in coping with divorce and the divorce process. If you have a favourite Eckhart Tolle quote share it with us.
Boredom, anger, sadness, or fear are not ‘yours,’ not personal. They are conditions of the human mind. They come and go. Nothing that comes and goes is you.
There is a fine balance between honoring the past and losing yourself in it. For example, you can acknowledge and learn from mistakes you made, and then move on and refocus on the now. It is called forgiving yourself.
Acceptance looks like a passive state, but in reality it brings something entirely new into this world. That peace, a subtle energy vibration, is consciousness.
To complain is always nonacceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself into a victim. When you speak out, you are in your power. So change the situation by taking action or by speaking out if necessary or possible; leave the situation or accept it. All else is madness.
The power for creating a better future is contained in the present moment: You create a good future by creating a good present.
Discontent, blaming, complaining, self-pity cannot serve as a foundation for a good future, no matter how much effort you make.
