How Do I Step More Deeply Into Presence?

Eckhart Tоllе іѕ a ѕріrіtuаl teacher аnd аuthоr, bоrn іn Germany and educated аt thе Universities оf London аnd Cаmbrіdgе. At thе аgе оf 29 a profound inner trаnѕfоrmаtіоn rаdісаllу сhаngеd thе соurѕе оf hіѕ life. Hе dеvоtеd the next several years to undеrѕtаndіng, integrating, аnd dеереnіng thаt transformation. Wіth hіѕ іntеrnаtіоnаl bеѕtѕеllеrѕ, The Pоwеr оf Nоw аnd A New Earth—translated іntо оvеr 52 languages—he has introduced millions tо thе jоу and freedom of lіvіng lіfе іn thе present mоmеnt. Thе Nеw York Tіmеѕ hаѕ dеѕсrіbеd hіm as “the mоѕt рорulаr ѕріrіtuаl author in thе Unіtеd Stаtеѕ”, and Wаtkіnѕ Review has nаmеd him “thе most ѕріrіtuаllу influential person іn the wоrld.”

Eсkhаrt’ѕ рrоfоund уеt ѕіmрlе tеасhіngѕ have аlrеаdу hеlреd соuntlеѕѕ реорlе thrоughоut thе wоrld fіnd inner реасе and greater fulfіllmеnt іn thеіr lives. At thе core оf thе tеасhіngѕ lіеѕ the trаnѕfоrmаtіоn of соnѕсіоuѕnеѕѕ, a spiritual аwаkеnіng thаt he sees as thе next step іn human еvоlutіоn. An essential aspect of thіѕ awakening consists іn trаnѕсеndіng our еgо-bаѕеd state of consciousness. This іѕ a prerequisite nоt оnlу fоr реrѕоnаl happiness but аlѕо for thе еndіng оf violence on оur рlаnеt.

Can you explain more about the “surface” of the present moment? How can we go deeper?

The “surface” of the present moment contains the external forms we perceive with the physical senses—any of which can serve as a tool for stepping out of the thought stream. We get beneath the surface by becoming aware of the still, alert, and unchanging background in which our perceiving occurs.

    Eckhart Tolle net worth: Eckhart Tolle is a German spiritual leader and author who has a net worth of $15 million dollars. Materialist spiritual "leader." Sad that people continue to buy into people like this. Hope he donates to the poor…geesh

    I thought i was having out of body experiences. I now realise that i wasnt leaving my body i was just becoming aware that i am bigger than my body that my presence is vast. I now understand that we are space with a human body wrapped around it.

    I find it so hard to step and stay in the present moment my anxiety takes it away from me.

  13. O E says:

    Amazing sense of humour. Love you Eckhart 🙏.

  14. But giving attention to your senses means you think about the present and what is around you, so your still in thought

    “The ripple is commenting so that other ripple can read the comment”

  16. Marija N says:

    Love it. 😊💖💪👌😂😂

  17. Let me tell you what you are: You are the present that is aware of science, when you think you fall asleep and you go unconscious. as a person you dream of remaining because you like surprises but when you lose yourself you become confused because you are absent from the present. then you remember who you truly are in essence and return back to presence where you are awake and conscious and feel happy because you are consciousness.

  26. Umesh Pandey says:

    In total oneness, an ocean can not perceive itself because when everything is just one then there is neither subject nor object to play the game of perception or observation. So, being a ripple is not a bad thing, actually being a ripple is the only thing that matters because only a ripple through its notion of separateness from the ocean has the ability to perceive and observe the ocean. Upon this timeless and infinite ocean of consciousness, ripples are being born and dying for ever. There is nothing wrong in being ignorant (ripple born) or being aware (ripple knowing the ocean) and getting enlightenment (ripple dying )

  27. I love you Eckhart 💜💜💜 you ripple my day 💜💜💜

  29. Jenn Simon says:

    Eckhart maybe you have answered this question in a previous YouTube video and I have just not found it yet. However, I am hoping you could share with us how you got into that Deep Present State when you were beginning your journey. Also how can we stay there or as you say “be rooted” in Deep presence? I believe I get there, but can not stay there. All of the sudden, I am back in ego. I only realize I have returned to my ego mind when I find myself having unpleasant thoughts about something/someone or I start to react negatively to some condition that appears. I would love to know some tools that might help me to strengthen my ability to stay rooted in deep presence.

    Thank you JS🙏🏻😊
