Eckhart Tolle on Negativity

Industry Observer

Eckhart Tolle


I have several books by Eckhart Tolle and what I like about his writing is he believes the past doesn't exist and the future hasn't come yet so the focus is on the present moment ... NOW

Here are some words of advice about negativity from Eckhart Tolle that makes sense to me and maybe you ...

And a photo I took in Alaska during fall for the moment of now ;o)

Morning VB.

Never heard of Eckhart until today.  While we all make plans for tomorrow, in reality no one ever knows do they?

The photo fits the words perfectly, both are so beautiful.  It is definitely best to live in the present, rather than dwelling on the past or worrying about the future.

That is quite the quote, Bob.  Just the other day I was thinking about psychological damage that can be created by those who sweep issues under the rug rather than addressing them as they occur.  The cummulative effect is damaging, and if they are addressed later on, can be difficult to identify because of the years passed.

Staying in the now is something I stress to my friend, who suffers greatly with anxiety.  Love the photo.

HI Robert Vegas Bob Swetz - Gorgeous shot!  I can't believe the leaves are already turning.  YIKES!  

I have read "A New Earth". It was hard to put down.  Echart Tolle is a powerful writer.

Last time I read Eckhart Tolle was back in college.  Time me to go back and take a second look. Great quote.
