I am overwhelmed by choice. As a recent college graduate, among other options, I have the opportunity to go to grad school, move for a job, or stick around and work to save. My parents and my girlfriend have their opinions, as do my friends, and I think Im just experiencing FOMO (fear of missing out). How do I know what I want?

S. Maddox

I applaud your ability to see that you have all these opportunities. Having the world laid out before you can be a very empowering and overwhelming feeling. Ive learned similar lessons about choices. Given too many, we are overwhelmed, and not given enough, we think something better is out there. Why do you think most marketing presents good, better and best options?

Aside from your fear of missing out, you probably know what you want; a short-term feeling or idea that youd like to maintain. Do you want to get out of the familiar and travel? Do you need more education to do what youd like to do? You must remember that the people in your life who are giving you their opinion, its not their life to lead. A lot can be said for the sage advice of someone with experience you trust, but youre going to have to walk your own path in order to become who you really are. Nana says, You can loan someone your map, but the way they decide to go is theirs. Dont be afraid to make those first few scary choices, even if the outcome is not exactly what you want. I can guarantee you will learn and grow from walking through it. Some of the dumbest choices Ive ever made taught me a skill that was invaluable to me in the future.

The key is to try to silence the noise and be as present as possible in order to listen to what that little inner voice is saying to you. It may be small, it may be weak, but it is there and you are aware of it. Have you ever heard that we all wear masks? Masks we present to the world to shield who we really are, our facades that allow us to operate in needed roles like parent, partner, leader, cheerleader. Masks that protect us, and help define who we are and our place in the world.

Spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle described how the ability to make choices frees us. Choice implies consciousness a high degree of consciousness. Without it, you have no choice. Choice begins the moment you dis-identify from the mind and its conditioned patterns, the moment you become present. Nobody chooses dysfunction, conflict, pain. Nobody chooses insanity. They happen because there is not enough presence in you to dissolve the past, not enough light to dispel the darkness. You are not fully here. You have not quite woken up yet. In the meantime, the conditioned mind is running your life.

In a world of so many opportunities, choices are defining moments that continue to shape the ever-evolving you. Its easy to listen when the world agrees with you. The difficultly lies when youre challenged to go against popular opinion. It can feel taxing to muster up the courage necessary to make the day-to-day choices, much less live out your unique dream. Listen when your inner voice overpowers what everyone else is saying. This is your true self inviting you to be free to claim your individual path.

Some of the most famous and successful people did not begin that way. They each got there step by step, choice by choice. Theres freedom in knowing that while every choice makes change, it is the sum total of our choices that guides us to the present moment and carves the pathway of our lives. If you dont like a choice you made, change it. It you cant change it, change your attitude about it. Dont put off choices you know you need to make.

A simple way to get in tune with yourself is compiling pros and cons list. Draw that line and compare and see how you react. We love horoscopes and advice columns and self-help groups because we have something to react to, we can see parts of ourselves in anothers story. When faced with a choice, ask if it moves you closer to your vision for yourself. Does it increase your joy and your experience? Does it connect you with what you do best, allowing you to grow?

Growing pains are called such for a reason. Through the growth process, its important to feel those periods of transition, however uncomfortable they may be. Learn from the past, but do not define yourself by it. I doubt the butterfly scorns the caterpillar. You dont have to define your whole life story based on one chapter.

Try as best you can to observe the journey with the inner confidence that you are being the best you know how to be. Confidence is not, Will this work out or will they like me? Confidence is, Ill be OK if it doesnt or they dont. It is often said that when a person is figuratively shaken, they will see what spills out, their character and what theyre made of. Its not going to be a wrong choice that you make and trust me, there will be some it will be how you react to it and what lessons you take from it. Its OK to walk up to this challenge just as you are. You cant mess up just by being you.

I hate cats but I needed a mouser and fast – The Globe and Mail

Posted: October 20, 2019 at 9:42 am


without comments

ILLUSTRATION BY WENTING LI

First Person is a daily personal piece submitted by readers. Have a story to tell? See our guidelines at tgam.ca/essayguide.

Dare we get a cat? My husband asked.

Have you gone completely mad? No way! I hate cats!

Story continues below advertisement

Wed tried everything peppermint oil, food in airtight containers, electronic rodent deterrents, humane catch and release traps. Finally, our tender hearts admitted this dilemma required the brutal snap mouse traps that would make us murderers. With a heavy sigh, we went to the hardware store and stocked up.

Much to our dismay, when we checked the traps the next morning the peanut butter was eaten but the vermin had escaped the spine-crushing-to-death part. Secretly, I was relieved. However, our mouse problem still needed solving.

We marched purposefully into the Humane Society asking for the meanest cat on site. The lady guided us to a cat at the back, in its own separate room with an enter at own risk sign on the door. As we looked through the glass, she explained that it was a stray, age unknown. It was male, a Barn Buddy with Catitude and the $165 adult cat fee was waived. Its long hair was matted, sparse and speckled with dander. It was skinny, mangy and exuded meanness that was palpable. The woman left abruptly, seemingly wanting nothing more to do with this cat.

After some courage-summoning moments, we entered vigilantly. It growled a warning, flicked its tail then hissed as we neared. I kept my distance. Its green eyes fixated on me with slits for pupils. A chill went up my spine, the hairs on the back of my neck stood up, and goosebumps covered my arms. Roy spoke softly to it and moved in close, the fool. Then, there was blood.

Well take him! I said.

I cant believe we got a cat my husband said as we drove home with the pitch-black mini panther, pacing in his tiny kennel prison as we sat in silent disbelief.

Desperate times I finally responded, envisioning the continual reappearing mound of mouse turds behind the piano.

Story continues below advertisement

Story continues below advertisement

I declared to all that I would not love it. We were dog people. As a matter of fact, we were quite polarized in our love for dogs versus cats. We would provide room and board, and it would kill mice. That would be the extent of this relationship.

Our pup Lynkin was curious about this creature in the kennel, tail a waggin, big grin and floppy tongued as he peeked in the air holes - until he heard the demonic growl followed by a hiss and a lurch forward. Lynkins tail went down swiftly and he scuttled away, wanting nothing further to do with this stinky, dark beast. From a safe distance, Lynky gave us a wide-eyed glare, as if to say: A cat? Really? Have you gone mad?

Were not going to love it, I reiterated. Lynky seemed to appreciate that.

Its going back I told Roy. At every opportunity the cat, who we named Liam, pummelled poor Lynkin for no reason other than malice. Roy insisted we give it a few more days, reminding me of the mouse turds behind the piano.

Liam would gobble up his food, then run and hide, swatting Lynkin on the way. That is, until Lynkin had enough. With an uncharacteristic snarl, growl and a triple nip, the shocked feline was taken aback by Lynkins shadow self.

Shortly thereafter, we began to notice his metamorphosis. The meanness of spirit transformed into an unpredictable sweetness and adorability that one had to see to believe.

Story continues below advertisement

His fur fluffed up as if hed just flown in from a shampoo and blow dry from a beauty salon in France. He became submissive toward Lynkin, following him around like a shadowy little brother. From then on, they were side by side. Liam started laying on the back of the couch, legs up in the air dead bug style. He slept with us in the family bed. He would come running when called, leaping into our laps where he would lull himself to sleep. How calming it is to have a contented, purring cat resonating near ones vibrations of the heart.

It is amazing what love can do.

I have met several Zen masters," says Eckhart Tolle all of them cats.

Late one night a few weeks in, I awoke to Liam tracking a mouse that ran under the bed. He chased it and after some run around, the mouse found a hiding spot at the base of the lamp on the nightstand. Liam looked in all other directions, then sat under the nightstand. I shook my head, realizing that he would not be holding up his end of the bargain. Yet, wed fallen in love with him. What would we do now?

Boom. In a flash Liams black paw darted up and pierced the mouse with his needle-like claws and dragged it into his lair under the table. I screamed. My scream made my husband scream and then the dog barked at all the commotion.

Courteously, Liam left the room with his prey, sparing us from the gruesome scene that would follow. In the morning, my husband found the gift at the entrance of his office.

Story continues below advertisement

Word got out in the mouse community, and thanks to Liam, the mice dont come around here any more and our family is perfectly squared with love.

Adversity Alchemy – Thrive Global

Posted: September 26, 2019 at 11:46 am


without comments

Become an alchemist. Transmute base metal into gold, suffering into consciousness, disaster into enlightenment.Eckhart Tolle

Bo may know football, but Heather Younger knows adversity. Family adversity. Professional adversity. Life adversity.

In her TEDxColoradoSprings talk, Transforming Adversity into Opportunity, she takes us on an intimate and personal journey filled with failure, doubt, self-reflection, and ultimately triumph through transformation.

It didnt have to be this way, though. Things could have turned out much, much worse. Heres the thing. Even with the circumstances and facts remaining exactly the same, Heather could have slid into resentment and failure. How so?

The adversity she encountered contained specific challenges like familial racism and being laid off, but it doesnt matter if your challenges look and feel different. The approach she reveals that helped her overcome is based on a universal principle that will work for anyone living through challenges, whatever their nature. Heather says it best.

What I learned from that experience is that rather than being a barrier to my success, my adversities and challenges can actually help me achieve great things.Heather Younger, J.D.

Here is my summary of her approach. To get the full nuances, Id recommend watching her TEDx talk or even better, reach out to Heather yourself. Shes very approachable!

Adversity Alchemy, by Heather Younger, J.D.

I know this works.

Not just because Ive met and know Heather, but also because Ive lived this principle in my Aikido training. One day I was doing a technique and attempting to pin a senior instructor when he resisted just a teeny-tiny bit to test me. I stopped in my tracks and he reversed the technique. Thats an F in Aikido.

He asked me,

Why did you stop, Joe? You had me. You just had to keep going.

We did the technique several more times and for more times than Id care to admit, I still gave up as soon as he resisted until I finally got it. The funny thing is I was in a superior position each and every time and would have been able to complete the technique regardless of his resistance.

Why did I fail? Because I gave up. I folded, like a deck of cards at the first sign of resistance or in Heathers lingo, adversity.

All I had to do was reframe the adversity. So instead of thinking, oh no this wont work, (irrational thought) stopping my momentum and losing my advantage, I could have thought, isnt that cute, he thinks he can resist (rational thought) and completed the technique.

We do this in life whether we realize it or not. We often give up and allow adversity to stop us. Heres the thing. There will always be adversity. The technique Heather shares reveals an important principle its not the absence of adversity, its how we approach it that matters.

You may be wondering: Why do we stop? Why do we give up?

Its fear. Not fear of physical danger or death, though your body may not be able to tell the difference. Its the fear of not being enough or not being worthy. Ironically, that is the same fear that ruined my Aikido technique. I had zero fear that my instructor would hurt me. It was a fear that I could not be any good at Aikido.

Im grateful to my good friend Heather for reminding me of this principle of dealing with adversity and sharing her useful, practical technique to succeed because of adversity, instead of in spite of adversity.

P.S. If youd like to read the #LinkedIn article Heather wrote after she was laid off that jump-started her career in employee engagement, you can find it here: How to Leave Employees with Their Dignity After a Layoff

Heather R. Younger, J.D. is the founder and CEO of Customer Fanatix, an organization that helps organizational leaders and their employees find their truth through executive coaching, leadership roundtables, culture team facilitation and scouring employee engagement survey comments.

As a best-selling author, international speaker, focus group facilitator, podcast host, and Forbes Coaches Council coach, she has earned her reputation as The Employee Whisperer. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

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. Later, he began to work in London with individuals and small groups as a counselor and spiritual teacher. Since 1995 he has lived in Vancouver, Canada.

Eckhart Tolle is the author of the New York Times bestsellers The Power of Now (translated into 33 languages) and A New Earth, which are widely regarded as two of the most influential spiritual books of our time. In 2008, A New Earth became the first spiritual book to be selected for Oprah's Book Club as well as the subject of a ten-week online workshop co-taught by Eckhart and Oprah.

Eckhart's profound yet simple teachings have 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 consists in 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.

Our latest collection ofEckhart TollequotesonEveryday Power Blog. Eckhart Tolle is a philosopher, speaker and best-selling author best known for his books The Power of Now and A Brave New World.

1.) To end the misery that has afflicted the human condition for thousands of years, you have to start with yourself and take responsibility for your inner state at any given moment. That means now. Eckhart Tolle

2.) For what you do to others, you do to yourself.Eckhart Tolle

3.) Instead of asking what do I want from life? A more powerful question is, what does life want from me?Eckhart Tolle

4.) If there were nothing but thought in you, you wouldnt even know you are thinking. You would be like a dreamer who doesnt know he is dreaming. When you know you are dreaming, you are awake within the dream.Eckhart Tolle

5.) Nothing ever happened in the past that can prevent you from being present now; and if the past cannot prevent you from being present now, what power does it have?Eckhart Tolle

6.) Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at this moment.Eckhart Tolle

7.) You cannot be both unhappy and fully present in the Now.Eckhart Tolle

8.) Whenever an answer, a solution, or a creative idea is needed, stop thinking for a moment by focusing attention on your inner energy field. When you resume thinking, it will be fresh and creative.Eckhart Tolle

9.) All the things that truly matter beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace arise from beyond the mind.Eckhart Tolle

10.) If I cannot live with myself, there must be two of me.Eckhart Tolle

11.) Thinking and consciousness are not synonymous. Thinking is only a small aspect of consciousness. Thought cannot exist without consciousness, but consciousness does not need thought.Eckhart Tolle

12.) Forget about your life situation and pay attention to your life. Your life situation exists in time. Your life is now. Your life situation is mind-stuff. Your life is real.Eckhart Tolle

13.) Not all thinking and all emotion are of the ego. They turn into ego only when you identify with them and they take you over completely, that is to say, when they become I.Eckhart Tolle

14.) Space has no existence. To exist literally means to stand out. You cannot understand space because it doesnt stand out. Although in itself it has no existence, it enables everything else to exist. Silence has no existence either, nor does the Unmanifested.Eckhart Tolle

15.) Always say yes to the present moment. What could be more futile, more insane, than to create inner resistance to what already is? what could be more insane than to oppose life itself, which is now and always now? Surrender to what is. Say yes to life and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.Eckhart Tolle

16.) Why does the mind habitually deny or resist the Now? Because it cannot function and remain in control without time, which is past and future, so it perceives the timeless Now as threatening. Time and mind are in fact inseparable.Eckhart Tolle

17.) 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 dont use it at all. It uses you. This is the disease. You believe that you are your mind. This is the delusion. The instrument has taken you over.Eckhart Tolle

18.) 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

19.) How is always more important than what. See if you can give much more attention to the doing than to the result that you want to achieve through it.Eckhart Tolle

20.) The secret of life is to die before you die and find that there is no death.Eckhart Tolle

21.) Being must be felt. It cant be thought.Eckhart Tolle

22.) The past has no power over the present moment.Eckhart Tolle

23.) Give up defining yourself to yourself or to others. You wont die. You will come to life. And dont be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so its their problem. Whenever you interact with people, dont be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.Eckhart Tolle

24.) Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it.Eckhart Tolle

25.) Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.Eckhart Tolle

33 Most Inspiring Eckhart Tolle Quotes (2019 Inspiration)

Posted: March 26, 2019 at 12:45 pm


without comments

The most common ego identifications have to do with possessions, the work you do, social status and recognition, knowledge and education, physical appearance, special abilities, relationships, person and family history, belief systems, and often nationalistic, racial, religious, and other collective identifications. None of these is you. Eckhart Tolle Ego Quotes

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 Ego Quotes

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. Eckhart Tolle Ego Quotes

You become most powerful in whatever you do if the action is performed for its own sake rather than as a means to protect, enhance, or conform to your role identity. Eckhart Tolle Ego Quotes

6 Potent Teachings from Eckhart Tolle. | elephant journal

Posted: December 11, 2018 at 12:45 am


without comments

A man who has enlightened the world through his books and talks. A man known to the world as a spiritual guru. This man is called Eckhart Tolle, and if you are familiar with his work, then you may have read his first book, The Power of Now.

If you have not heard of Eckhart Tolle, let me introduce you:

Born in Germany, Eckhart Tolle, whose real name is Ulrich, is a man who lived in a state of almost continuous anxiety his whole life. His thoughts were mainly negative, as was his own sense of identity. He worked hard academically and tried to prove his success to the world, but there was always a dark cloud hanging above him.

Then, one night, he had a horrible dream filled with many negative thoughts and emotions. When he awoke, there was a sense of disidentification. He started thinkingif his mind had been dreaming and thinking all those negative thoughts, then who was observing it? He couldnt be his mind and the observer. That meant there must be two of him. The mind (or the ego) and his own sense of self.

That one thought completely changed his life.

After that night, Eckhart Tolle lived each day in a total state of bliss.

Every single day, for two years, he would sit on a park bench. No phone, no book, just his own presence: totally at peace and in the moment. Eventually, curiosity got the better of people, and they started to ask questions: Why does he come here every day? How is he so peaceful? What is his secret?

His behaviour went viral, and it wasnt long before a new spiritual leader was born.

In 1997, his first book about enlightenment, The Power of Now,hit the shelves. I first read it in 2008, way before I even knew what enlightenment was. The second time I picked up that book again was in 2016, after Id faced challenges of my own, disguised as my own awakening.

This time, I could not put it down.

I understood almost every word and would pause between chapters to really let the wisdom sink in.

Eckhart Tolle believes there are two types of people in this world today.

There are the conscious beingsthe awakened souls, who are aware of their thoughts and surroundings and less identified with their minds or egos. Then, there are the ones who are not conscious, nor awakened. Eckhart refers to this as unconsciousness. Unconscious people are identified with their thought processes and emotions and tend to come from the egoic mind rather than from the heart.

Become conscious of being conscious. ~ Eckhart Tolle

In Eckhart Tolles second book,A New Earth, he talks mostly about an ego-based state of consciousness and how it operates, referring to it as an ID (identification with the ego, or egoic mind). The egoic mind likes to interpret events and experiences as a personal, and likes to judge and criticise ourselves and others. Though we have evolved from prehistoric times when our ancestors were living in caves, our egoic mind still likes to try and keep us safejust in case that saber tooth tiger is still hiding around the corner.

Ego takes everything personally. ~ Eckhart Tolle

Eckhart Tolle strongly believes that all of life is right now, the present moment. When we start to think about tomorrow, we miss the beauty that is in front of us today. When we think about the next moment, we spoil the one we are in. Our minds are full of clutter every day telling us we have to be busy, that we cant be present because we have too much to do. This is just an illusion, as time is all we have. It doesnt take much to stop what you are doing, look up, and appreciate all that is around you.

In todays rush, we all think too much, seek too much, want too much, and forget about the joy of just being. ~ Eckhart Tolle

When we feel pain, it is generally because we have identified with a thought, emotion, or feeling of a past wound. Eckhart Tolle believes the pain body is a negative energy field that occupies our mind and body. He refers to it as the emotional pain body and describes it as a psychic parasite that feeds on any experience that relates to its own negative energy, anything that creates further anger, grief, destruction, illness, and even violence.

The only way you can dissolve the pain body is to accept that it is there. Dont judge yourself out of it; stay present, take deep breaths, and continue to observe what is happening to you.

Understanding your pain body dissolves your pain. ~ Eckhart Tolle

Do you ever wonder why you feel such enormous love for your pet when youre around them? This is because an animal does not judge. Just looking at a dog makes its tail wag. It simply thinks life is good. There is no story of why life is good, it just is.

When a dog or cat looks at you, its not wondering what kind of person you are; there is no judgement at all. In fact, our pets can teach us many things about staying aware and in the now, which is why Eckhart Tolle strongly believes that pets can help their owners stay in in the present moment.

Its so wonderful to watch an animal, because an animal has no opinion about itself. ~ Eckhart Tolle

Did you know that laughter breaks the ego? Laughter has been shown to reduce stress hormones, such as cortisol and epinephrine, and add a boost of serotonin, the feel good hormone. It is the best antidote, helps bring us back to the present, and lets us step away from any thinking and doing, even for a minute. I know after a fit of giggles, I feel happy, warm, and enormous joy for the moment I am in, which is why they say that laughter is the best medicine.

Life isnt as serious as your mind makes it out to be. ~ Eckhart Tolle

Eckharts teachings have been spread all over the world.

He has become an influential leader, attracting the likes of Jim Carrey, Russell Brand, and even Oprah, who became his number one supporter. There was something about this mans work that resonated with many other people, including myselfand after seeing him speak live earlier this year, I want to share his wisdom with others.

Presence through Movement is a way to step more fully into the expression of your authentic self, that is who you are in your essence. In this practice, we use the vehicle of the physical form as a gateway to aligning body, mind, and individual soul with the one consciousness or spirit which we are all a part. It is designed with the aim of accelerating our spiritual awakening process.

Kim Eng created Presence through Movement (PTM) inspired by an intuitive impulse that arose during formal sitting meditation. Originally emphasizing body-based practices such as Tai Chi, Qi Gong, and Yoga, PTM has evolved into a multifaceted approach combining the teachings of Kims partner, Eckhart Tolle, with movement, meditation, contemplation, and self inquiry.

How does it work? As Kim explains, When our sense of well-being is compromised with stress, negativity, and fear, our bodies become contracted and energetically out of alignment. This contraction and misalignment affects us physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Presence through Movement helps you become more aware of your inner reality, including your emotions, as well as your mind and its thought processes that may have contributed to the dis-ease. As a portal to the formless dimension within, PTM enables us to return to wholeness and inner balance, resulting in an ease and flow with the present moment. It aligns you with your true nature, which is awareness or consciousness.

Eckhart Tolle’s School of Awakening

Posted: November 17, 2018 at 12:44 am


without comments

Dear friend on the path,

Welcome to the first-ever enrollment for The Eckhart Tolle School of Awakening.

I know many of you are experiencing inner transformation. Perhaps you have begun to realize the possibility within yourself of living from a different state of consciousnessa state we call "the awakened state."

But transformation often presents challenges. A difficulty many people come up against is how to integrate and stabilize their arising new consciousness in daily life.

The dance between the world of form and the formless, or the un-manifested, can lead to suffering and confusion.

Many of you may be asking, "How do I live in this world and stay rooted in deeper states of Being and Presence?"

The School of Awakening was designed to help you transcend the egoic state of mind that makes life seem like a series of frustrating or unsatisfying experiences. Awakening is a release of the dysfunctional state of mind that creates suffering so you can discover and live from your true essencewhat I refer to as the "Deep I."

The world will continually challenge and try to pull you out of living from this awakened state of consciousness.

Your commitment is what keeps you rooted in the present moment.

This can lead to the realization that your primary purpose in life is awakeningliving consciously and being a bringer of consciousness in the world.

The School of Awakening will further the awakening of consciousness that is already happening in you and allow you to integrate it more continuously in everyday life.
