Authors: The Power of Now Quotes, Important Quotes, Sayings, Quotations from the book by Eckhart Tolle

I cannot tell you any spiritual truth that deep within you don't know already. All I can do is remind you of what you have forgotten.
The Power of Now
Introduction, Page 6.
Those who have not found their true wealth, which is the radiant joy of Being and the deep, unshakable peace that comes with it, are beggars, even if they have great material wealth. They are looking outside for scraps of pleasure or fulfillment, for validation, security, or love, while they have a treasure within that not only includes all these things but is infinitely greater than anything the world can offer.
The Power of Now
Chapter 1, Page 9.
The mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. Used wrongly, however, it becomes very destructive. To put it more accurately, it is not so much that you use your mind wrongly—you usually don't use it at all. It uses you.
The Power of Now
Chapter 1, Page 13.
All the things that truly matter — beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace — arise from beyond the mind.
The Power of Now
Chapter 1, Page 14.
All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness.
The Power of Now
Chapter 1, Page 19.
Love, joy, and peace cannot flourish until you have freed yourself from mind dominance.
The Power of Now
Chapter 1, Page 24.
Pleasure is always derived from something outside you, whereas joy arises from within.
The Power of Now
Chapter 1, Page 24.
Pain is inevitable as long as you are identified with your mind.
The Power of Now
Chapter 1, Page 25.
Nobody’s life is entirely free of pain and sorrow. Isn’t it a question of learning to live with them rather than trying to avoid them?
The Power of Now
Chapter 2, Page 27.
The greater part of human pain is unnecessary. It is self-created as long as the unobserved mind runs your life.
The Power of Now
Chapter 2, Page 27.
The pain that you create now is always some form of nonacceptance, some form of unconscious resistance to what is. On the level of thought, the resistance is some form of judgment. On the emotional level, it is some form of negativity. The intensity of the pain depends on the degree of resistance to the present moment, and this in turn depends on how strongly you are identified with your mind.
The Power of Now
Chapter 2, Page 27.
Accept - then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Aways work with it, not against it. Make it your friend and ally, not your enemy. This will miraculously transform your whole life.
The Power of Now
Chapter 2, Page 29.
Watch out for any sign of unhappiness in yourself in whatever form - it may be the awakening pain-body. This can take the form of irritation, impatience, a somber mood, a desire to hurt, anger, rage, depression, a need to have some drama in your relationship and so on. Catch the pain-body the moment it awakens from its dormant stage.
The Power of Now
Chapter 2, Page 30.
Where there is anger, there is always pain underneath.
The Power of Now
Chapter 2, Page 32.
The psychological condition of fear is divorced from any concrete and true immediate danger. It comes in many forms: unease, worry, anxiety, nervousness, tension, dread, phobia, and so on. This kind of psychological fear is always of something that might happen, not of something that is happening now.
The Power of Now
Chapter 2, Page 35.
Power over others is weakness disguised as strength. True power if within, and it is available to you now.
The Power of Now
Chapter 2, Page 36.
An emotion is the body's reaction to your mind.
The Power of Now
Chapter 2, Page 36.
Life is now. There was never a time when your life was not now, nor will there ever be.
The Power of Now
Chaper 2, Page 41.
Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to "die before you die" — and find that there is no death.
The Power of Now
Chapter 2, Page 38.
To be identified with your mind is to be trapped in time: the compulsion to live almost exclusively through memory and anticipation.
The Power of Now
Chapter 3, Page 40.
Nothing ever happened in the past; it happened in the Now. Nothing will ever happen in the future; it will happen in the Now.
The Power of Now
Chapter 3, Page 41.
The quality of your consciousness at this moment is what shapes the future — which, of course, can only be experienced as the Now.
The Power of Now
Chapter 3, Page 50.
All negativity is caused by an accumulation of psychological time and denial of the present. Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry—all forms of fear—are caused by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of nonforgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence.
The Power of Now
Chapter 3, Page 50.
Most people find it difficult to believe that a state of consciousness totally free of all negativity is possible. And yet this is the liberated state to which all spiritual teachings point. It is the promise of salvation, not in an illusory future but right here and now.
The Power of Now
Chapter 3, Page 50.
Do not be concerned with the fruit of your action - just give attention to the action itself. The fruit will come of its own accord.
The Power of Now
Chapter 3, Page 57.
To be free of time is to be free of the psychological need of past for your identity and future for your fulfillment.
The Power of Now
Chapter 4, Page 59.
Be at least as interested in what goes on inside you as what happens outside. If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place.
The Power of Now
Chaper 4, Page 64.
Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally.
The Power of Now
Chapter 4, Page 68.
There is nothing wrong with striving to improve your life situation. You can improve your life situation, but you cannot improve your life. Life is primary. Life is your deepest inner being. It is already whole, complete, and perfect. There is nothing wrong with setting goals and striving to achieve things. The mistake lies in using it as a substitute for the feeling of life, for being.
The Power of Now
Chapter 4, Page 71.
You cannot find yourself by going into the past. You can find yourself by coming into the present.
The Power of Now
Chapter 4, Page 75.
Words in themselves are not important. They are not the Truth; they only point to it.
The Power of Now
Chapter 5, Page 85.
At the deepest level of Being, you are one with all that is.
The Power of Now
Chapter 6, Page 105.
The ultimate purpose of the world lies not within the world but in the transcendence of the world.
The Power of Now
Chapter 7, Page 117.
You find God the moment you realize that you don't need to seek God.
The Power of Now
Chapter 8, Page 122.
[Relationships] do not cause pain and unhappiness. They bring out the pain and unhappiness that is already in you.
The Power of Now
Chapter 8, Page 127.
Whenever anything negative happens to you, there is a deep lesson concealed within it, although you may not see it at the time.
The Power of Now
Chapter 9, Page 147.
It seems that most people need to experience a great deal of suffering before they will relinquish resistance and accept — before they will forgive.
The Power of Now
Chapter 9, Page 149.
