Eckhart Tolle is a teacher, author, entrepreneur, and Spiritual Speaker. He is German by birth. His teachings on the Spiritual area are followed by many in today’s world. His perceptive of “Practising the Power of Now” is phenomenal. He states the Observer to be still and observe what’s going on around and identify yourself who you been.

The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not “the thinker.” The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter-beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace-arise from beyond the mind. You begin to awaken.

“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.”

Eckhart Tolle

According to Eckhart Tolle, the purpose of life is to be here fully, to align yourself with this moment internally, and to realize wherever you are is where you are supposed to be, and whatever you are doing in the now is what you are supposed to do.

“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.”

Eckhart Tolle

Example – At the moment you are reading this, it means this is what you are supposed to do now. This is your purpose for now. I will try to elaborate a little further – When you are reading this statement, it the power of now(that is your purpose of now) while reading if you think that I want to read this fast and read more on this, means your mind is messing with you and you are not in now moment. Your purpose, for now, is while you are reading here you have to only read don’t think of any other thought, that will be said as actually practicing the power of now. I hope you guys are getting me. Future has no existence except another thought.

Questioner – I want to know my purpose in life?

Eckhart answer – Your purpose is to be here at this moment and asking that question because this is where you are. Practicing or being in the moment of now is the only purpose of life. He further explores Outer purpose and inner purpose.

“The outer purpose of the universe is to create form and experience the interaction of forms—the play, the dream, the drama, or whatever you choose to call it. Its inner purpose is to awaken to its formless essence.”

Eckhart Tolle

We are a speck of dust in this cosmos, we are a microcosmic reflection of the macrocosm. If we look within having thought of us being microcosmic then we realize the existence is nothing but a tiny portion of this universe. He emphasizes enlightened our consciousness so that we are awake in the moment of now. For Example – Now, if you go to the forest and watch the trees, animals, you walking in the forest is the conceptual knowing. But if you are witnessing the conceptual knowing is a Conscience state. You don’t get trapped with conceptual knowing is rising of consciousness, you are no longer in suffering you are in empathy. When your consciousness is directed outward, mind and world arise. When it is directed inward, it realizes its own Source and returns home into the Unmanifested.

“Life will give you whatever experience is the most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness.”
