Summary

When we resist the present moment, we close the door to happiness. But when we align with what is, we access the source of lasting peace and contentment. On The Secret of Happiness, Eckhart Tolle invites you to experience how your sense of joy and fulfillment radically changes through the awakening of consciousness and the realization of who you are beyond the content of your thoughts.

Eckhart begins by pointing out the dissatisfaction inherent in the life of "the little me" - or the thought-based sense of self for whom restlessness and anxiety rule the day. Our task, he explains, is to discover our "formless" identity - our essence beyond the personality and the relative concerns of a worldly life. Join Eckhart as he discusses:

  • Unconditional friendship with the form this moment takes
  • The transformational power of surrender
  • Practical ways to bring in "space consciousness" for creativity and balance in the things you do

"The present moment is a portal out of suffering and into something much deeper than any concept of happiness," teaches Eckhart. Here is your opportunity to make this liberating shift, with The Secret of Happiness.

One of my favourites!

As always, these talks are very special, and although this one is short, it’s one of the best! Highly worth it.

Love Ekhart’s Humour

I love Ekhart’s humour - he chuckles through describing our insanities! Always a pleasure - I smile throughout. Such simple insights - inner peace is available underneath the struggles.

Humor in this one! loved it!

I've been binging on the eckhart books and I must say this one is probably the best so far. The irony of the title, the relatability, the fact that I laughed many times throughout, bravo!

ECKHART’s Best Live Lecture

I’ve listened to just about everything ECKHART Tolle has on Audible. While this particular recording is short in length, don’t take that to mean it is not powerful. In fact, this specific lecture series, in my humble opinion, may be one of his most powerful and transformative recordings to date. The lessons ring with deep truth. Hopes this helps you as much as it did me. Good luck on your path. May all beings be happy :)

Love this guy

Tolle states that the world is starting to awaken to what some would refer to as oneness with God. He says happiness is a term that is too simplistic for the bliss or quiet joy one experiences. It appears this is true.

Wisdom in simple words

Eckhart Tolle's wisdom and his ability to get explain it in a very simple way is deeply moving and inspiring. I went from not accepting the Now to fully accepting where I am. Thank you Eckhart

Many Pearl's of wisdom!

Being is enough. Stillness is my essential nature. ET always finds a pointer to the nameless space available now.
