‘The purpose of life is to find balance between being and doing,’ Eckhart Tolle says. If this is true, how do we find that balance? Tolle suggests we fulfil this purpose by remaining deeply rooted in silence while being active in the world. Beautiful. How do we do that? How do you remain deeply rooted […]
Today is the final day of the retreat with Eckhart Tolle in Coolum, Sunshine Coast QLD Australia. People have come from all over the world to become more conscious, to be still inside and to learn from this modern master.
The retreat is well underway. In fact it will already end, be over and behind us, tomorrow. Today Kim Eng will be leading sessions one and two. Eckhart will do sessions three and four.
Tonight Eckhart will treat us to Spiritual Entertainment :-). He is clearly looking forward to the evening by the look on his face when he announces this special night.
It is Day 3 of the retreat. It is impossible to write down everything Eckhart Tolle tells us. In six months time the recordings of the sessions will all be available on the Eckhart Tolle TV-website. Here I try at least to capture some of what he says.
Looking up ‘the kingdom of heaven is within you’ on Google I find mainly quotes saying ‘the kingdom of God is within you’. Eckhart Tolle hardly ever mentions the word God.
‘You are consciousness. Consciousness is like the light of the sun. What the sun is, is for you to find out.’ With these words Eckhart Tolle concludes the first session of the retreat in Coolum, Sunshine Coast Australia.
I’m at an Eckhart Tolle retreat. Today is Day 3. I intend to give you a full summary when I get home. Right now I must reflect on one thing already. Thank you for being an invisible yet helpful ear or listener-reader.
