About Eckhart Tolle
Spiritual teacher and author Eckhart Tolle was born in Germany and educated at the Universities of London and Cambridge. At the age of twenty-nine, a profound inner transformation radically changed the course of his life. The next few years were devoted to understanding, integrating, and deepening that transformation, which marked the beginning of an intense inward journey. Eckhart’s profound yet simple teachings have already helped countless people throughout the world find inner peace and greater fulfillment in their lives. At the core of the teachings lies the transformation of consciousness, a spiritual awakening that he sees as the next step in human evolution. An essential aspect of this awakening includes transcending our ego-based state of consciousness. This is a prerequisite not only for personal happiness but also for the ending of violent conflict endemic on our planet.

Eckhart Tolle is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Power of Now (translated into 33 languages) and the highly acclaimed follow-up A New Earth, which are widely regarded as two of the most influential spiritual books of our time.

About The Awakening of Consciousness
Eckhart Tolle believes that something new is happening in human history: a vast number of people are starting to awaken spiritually, through the power of the present moment. Though teachings about presence have been at the core of spiritual practice throughout human history, it is only in the aftermath of the age of rational thought that we are now ready on a large scale to embrace the “true sanity” of living in the Now. Recorded in front of a live audience, join Eckhart Tolle in a three-hour journey to liberation from the endless cycle of ego-thinking in The Awakening of Consciousness.

  1. The mind is a tool…. not YOU! Do NOT think that your mind is in control, YOU are in control of your mind, takes practice to change habitual thought patterns, especially about the self, but it is necessary or it freaking takes over you. The only thing you ever have ANY control of is your current thought, THINK DIFFERENTLY and this new way of thinking will be established…. the mind is like a mindless radio that's constantly going…. use intention on your thoughts, awareness of the radio is key! Light and love to all!

  2. I'm so happy that i'm no longer being tormented and tortured by my thoughts. I remember a thought that really made me suffer the most "no one in this entire earth can be suffering more than myself" and that almost led me to suicide.

  3. Thanks so much Eckhart Tolle. No one has helped me more as I recently went through an awakening. Even put a quick video about the 'no-mans land' between egoic mind and the inner earlier today on my chan for fun.

  4. Approximately a month ago, I hit a point that a wheel in my mind stopped…Total silence…It freaked me out although i felt relieved. I was like floating…Totally aware of the environment but felt like i've dumbed down. But I was not…Then during the day i've lost it gradually (as i considered it as a problem I tried to turn back to normal and after a couple of hours the wheel in my mind started working slowly again)…

    I want that back now 🙂 But I don't know how I got there in the first place.

  5. Sleep, dimension, peace…??? Many animals also sleep, that is a part of physiological need. I listened to him, I don;t know what is he takling about? Are we tying to create a new prophets in this century..??

  6. How does this clown live with himself, being such a gross effeminate weirdo? He claims to be so aware and yet he seems completely unaware of how strangely he behaves and the gross noises he makes when he whisper talks. Eating dinner with this he-she would be like eating dinner with an old cat. Smack, smack, smack, slurp, gurgle, click, click, pop.

  7. If more people would follow his teachings and stop thinking, stop striving, stop fighting;
    then even more of the world could be in grinding poverty and misery, like the slums of India.

  8. i really dont understand you people with the demons….tolle is talking about becoming aware of consciousness in the present moment…an aspect of our selves as human beings..he obviously comes from a buddhist perspective..but demons??? jees..theta waves are present in our sleep and in daydreaming states….scientific analysis of brain waves has nothing to do with any spiritual perspectives..except to say that praying or meditating produces that frequency of brainwave..

  9. yeah you are about to fall t sleep then bam a demonic twitch that is what that is demons have more access to our minds etc when we are half asleep i had one start just talking through me bu angle kicked its ass for violating me the demons communicate with us and control and manifest and operate in theta waves a kind of more spiritual brain wave this has been proven by scientists they even say its spiritual but dont want to really say its demons Be in Health proves it check them out

  10. wow i little bit od what he is talking about is only possible through Christ what i mean is steping outside of youe emotions and being able to control them anger; evil thoughts etc demonic inspired thoughts and inceptions of lies but yeah he is bullshit i know that better then most people hes demonized and stupid
