Brief Insights


“It is possible to live happily in the here and the now. So many conditions of happiness are available — more than enough for you to be happy right now. You don’t have to run into the future in order to get more.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

Don’t Look For Peace

“Forgive yourself for not being at peace. The moment you completely accept your non-peace, your non-peace becomes transmuted into peace. Anything you accept fully will get you there, will take you into peace. This is the miracle of surrender. When you accept what is, every moment is the best moment. This is enlightenment.”

“The very reason for our existence in human form is to bring that dimension of consciousness [arising of Presence] into this world.”

Eckhart TolleA New Earth


“When you recognize that the present moment is always already the case and therefore inevitable, you can bring an uncompromising inner “yes” to it and so not only create no further unhappiness, but, with inner resistance gone, find yourself empowered by Life itself.”

Eckhart TolleA New Earth

Just Thoughts

“We create stories about who we are, where we’re going, what’s in our favor or against us, how stressed or frightened we are, and how inadequate and unworthy we are. We focus on these thoughts so much that we often believe those assessments of our lives as truths rather than as thoughts. But they are just thoughts, and this is where liberation lies. Becoming mindful of our thoughts as just thoughts can free us from the oppression of our unexamined thinking minds.”

Know Yourself

“Before you ask any other question, first ask the most fundamental question of your life: Who am I?  … Knowing yourself is to be rooted in Being, instead of lost in your mind.”

Eckhart TolleA New Earth

Not Minding What Happens

“To be in alignment with what is means to be in a relationship of inner nonresistance with what happens. It means not to label it mentally as good or bad, but to let it be. Does this mean you can no longer take action to bring about a change in your life? On the contrary. When the basis for your actions is inner alignment with the present moment, your actions become empowered by the intelligence of Life itself.”

Eckhart TolleA New Earth

Surrendering to the Present Moment

“There is something within you that remains unaffected by the transient circumstances that make up your life situation, and only through surrender [accepting the present moment] do you have access to it. It is your life, your very Being — which exists externally in the timeless realm of the present.”
