Breaking Free of Old Habits, Addiction, and Past Traumas with Dr. Gabor Mat
"Gabor. It's a pleasure. Thank you so much for making time and joining us on the podcast. Figured nice to be here before we jump into the work on addiction and your writings and teachings which. I'm sure many of my audiences familiar with. I want to ask you actually a selfish question which is You wrote an article in an interview. I believe it was a canadian newspaper. That one of the books you would've given to your younger self was a new earth by eckhart tola it. Add the caveat that you weren't sure at the age of eighteen or nineteen or twenty that you would have actually read the book. It might have been a little bit too much at the time. I'm curious what does that mean to you. Why did you choose that. As one of the books you'd get to younger self well number of things one is When you go up when you're young you identify so much with your ideas in your body and your own history and you think that's all you are but this book takes deeper that a deeper awareness inside all of us that is more true to the essence of what we are than all thoughts ideas and doings. That'd be being caught up again so that space between who we actually are internally and The form that we've taken the history that we've had that's a wonderful realization and then of course there's this concept of the pain body The pain by the accumulated hurts grievances and national reactive patterns and negative beliefs but life has imposed on us because of way life is which is very often traumatic. That pain buddy lives within us almost as an independent entity in it and so often it takes over functioning of course in my workers a physician also known personalize the miseries that i've been to individually personally but americans a physician. I've seen so often that pain body. That accumulated ingrained. A history of pain. function is to run people's lives and someone so much of our lives is designed to either deny the pain or the run away from edge addictions coming so the whole pain body concept and then the idea that the new earth. It's a reality that we can be lies within. Ourselves is not some airy fairy concept. That's out there summer. So and also there's just something of blood that particular man card toy who that is not just empty teachings is not just. Words is a sense of being that he manifests. That does make a difference. May around it even just if you're on his words on on on the pages of a book which itself is uplifting and opens you up so it It one is the book. It was one of the books that helped to open up my consciousness. You mentioned the term space and the space between the life events and then the true essence of who you are and there's a space in between which gives us you know as i totally talks about in the book the freedom to actually step into the present. When was the first time for you that you actually noticed that. There is a space in. Between the life circumstances that you had gone through in your upbringing your addictions that later developed that you've been very open about writing about and your true essence. Look it depends on what the moment of the day you catch me in. Because it's not like i've live life for others. I'm always aware of the space. And so on i can get caught up in some pity trivial things so i don't i'm city I don't sit here are some example of somebody who's really realized their essence and can manifest it Although that i do sometimes so. I don't think there's any pill moment i i've not had one of these. Some people i know of that is big realization moments. This direct experience of a digital download. Reality or reality manifests through them. I know convey closest people have had those experiences. I can't say. I've had that expands personally so i can't give you a particular moment that i know of one of clinches of it sometimes in real-life sometimes work sometimes in the traditional ceremony. Sometimes but i can't give you a single transformational moment. I can point to and say here's what had happened. And since then i've got it

We're going to deeper into linked jan and how you've been leveraging in using it because what we're saying to people is look leave untapped opportunity on link jin to really take the time now to build those connections because the seeds that you start to so now i going to come as you develop a nurture that just like farming going to seed and sprout and what you do now is going to impact many months down the track which is cost. Scott is what happened she you but before we move on sometimes we do need to plow that field a little bit talk about some of the ways that you overcame some of those obstacles new sites. Actually you'll superpower because sometimes when we are sitting in that situation off want now. Everything feels and seems hopeless. We're not able to take on any new learnings. That really could be the solution to moving forward because what happened to you. of course. it's taken that trajectory in a whole other area. Which now you'll specializing in. So what are a few words of advice some insights maybe around becoming obstacles that that becomes a superpower being resilient and that that can sort of late to successes and then i think jive deeper into to the link. Jim but what are some Insights you wanna share here. Well it actually. It all came about two different things so just four and a half years ago. I filed for personal bankruptcy. And i am i i. I don't believe you can go any lower. The net point now to preface. That i had a successful coaching practice. I had a successful online wellness practice but the gym was failing. It was losing about three thousand dollars a month. I was the personal guarantor of the lease and for business owners. That don't know what that means. When you're the personal guarantor of the lease your financially responsible for every dollar. It's owed on that least whether it succeeds or fails and that was about four hundred and fifty thousand dollars of liability debt. That was in my name. And i met with my business attorney and he said listen. You got two choices. You can continue having your two successful businesses fund. You're failing one or you can file for personal. Bankruptcy have cleaned sate slate and start your life now and when he painted that picture for me. There was no hesitation. A lot of people. That may be here that they're like all my guide. I might be faced with filing for bankruptcy. I didn't hear your life is going to be over. I heard your life is about to begin. Because this emory this was my opportunity over an eighteen year period that i was finally able to start doing things on my own my own way painting the picture that i wanted to paint carving the path that i wanted to carve people think that life is a straight line. Life is not a straight line there. Are you know again. We're in a very unprecedented time rate now in globally a lot of people have. There's been a lot loss. There's been lives lost. There's been Relationships lost there's been memories and precious time with loved ones that are lost but again we've all been through our own form of personal pandemics whether it's divorce whether it's bankruptcy whether it's cutting ties with family member whatever it is but the one thing that always kept me going was knowing that i couldn't control anything that has happened. Can't control it. It's early in the past. And i can't worry too much about the future because it hasn't happened yet and remember reading. A book called the power of now by eckhart totally and he talks about just and and this is m read. This is my the foundation. That i always come back to whenever there's a wall kicking moment whenever there's a hiccup with something that's going on. He says in this book. There's three types of people there's people that live in anxiety there's people that live in fear and there's people that live in peace. The people that live in anxiety are the ones that are constantly replaying the tapes of their past that are keeping them where they don't want to be the people that in fear are the ones that are so fearful of. What has it happened yet. They are paralyzed with what's going on right now. And then there's the people that live in peace and the people that live in peace are the ones that are living in the time period. That is the only time in our life that we can actually control which is the now the present moment which we are in rate at this time so when i started to think about that i knew no matter what was going to be thrown at me. There is a solution for every problem. And you hear it. All the time live in the solution. Don't live in the problem if it's already happened. Okay i'm going to work through this. There's a there's a way to figure this whole thing out and i had to remain grounded. And that is what's really enabled me to continue to thrive whether there's a pandemic or not it's allowed me to overcome those obstacles. I'm not saying that there is no emotional scars. We all have. We always carry around emotional scars. But it's how we process and handle them and grow from them and it's also allowed me to become resilient it's allowed me to understand and take conceptually know that no matter what the universe is throwing at me it's going to propel me to something greater and i look forward to those challenges because we are challenged when something is thrown our way and we are growing. We become better definitely and you being in the background. The jim knight building muscle. When you're lifting you tearing muscle a posh to make wine. You'll crushing those grades. And so to build resilience. You have resilience muscle. Guess what in asia guy challenges and obstacles to be able to learn and grow and because of that you'll now able to share how you you'll leveraging linking because that was something that the kind of apparent to you. Hey i can connect with all of these people. So what i've got. I've got gone in john beforehand. Is i have actually let me. Just see if i can bring this on. Looked you up on lincoln and they guy we've got. Your leak did profile so i'll go. That might be nice to have been. But you know you talk about the best use of linked into build your business and brand. What would you say have been some of the key insights. You've learned through leveraging region. Some of the how. To's that really have made a significant difference in how you have leverage in the outcomes that you and your clients are now getting through using this platform. So i called the layer cake of lincoln and the four best practices or best things that you can understand the way that i call it. A layer cake is because there's a big layer medium layer small layer and then a tiny layer and the big layer is your profile. This is this is where people get to know who you are and what you do and actually if you scroll down a little bit and maria on my profile you'll see under the highlighted the featured information rate. They're on the right hand side. There's an optimize linked in. It's it's a free download That i have where it helps. People start to optimize a pdf. That goes over the specific sections. And i always talk about making sure that you have a clear and present headshot you have a background photo that is branded to you. the about me section which is very very important and the two best tips that i can give you for the about me. Section number one Actually three making sure. It's in first person you don't want it in third person. Make sure it's in first person number to make sure it's two to three hundred words in length that is leading the reader of your profile. No here's what i do. Here's how i do it. And here's what i do for clients and finally a call to action. So is there a website you can direct them to. Is there an email. They can contact you out so if you go to the bottom of that you will see that. I put a call to action. Connect with me here. Reach out to me here. Give people somewhere to go. The experience action is also very important because the experience section. It really allows you to pudding key words and what people don't understand is there's something called seo embedded all over our profile which means search engine optimization so are linked in profile so emory if you open up another window and you just go on google and i i always do this with people and you open up another window and you just type in my name and you type in scott aaron One of the first things. That's going to come up with a google result on the first page is my latent profile. And are you talking. Yes and why. That's so powerful. So that means that you're profiles because microsoft obviously works in conjunction with yahoo with being with google so now when people are searching on google the redirected back to your page. So you can see rate there. My linked in profile is the third result on there.
Family Trio Makes Marvelous Mask Magnets
"Like so many in mid twenty twenty. Hey eckhart was feeling. The effects of coronavirus lockdown was already accustomed to video calls with his sister and their mom living in three different cities and that was fine but the social isolation from everyone else made things rough of course life itself had changed dramatically among other things everyone interacted with outside his home wore a mask. And it's this mask that uncovered his side hustle story has diligent square and so is his mother and sister but they found most mass. Design's pretty bland and boring. Of course there were the custom design. Ones like those sold on oetzi but those are often very expensive so the trio devised a way to brighten up your average mask. That was simple cost effective and interchangeable between masks. The idea was magnetically backed. Charms stick to a shirt or backpack. They envisioned a range of designs with different colors shapes and logos making them custom personal for the where. They were positive. This idea would work and move quickly springing into action. The first thing they needed was a name and they settled on mask mags. Luckily hank had some technical skills so he took charge of building a website using shop. Advise the platform sourcing magnets on the other hand. Wouldn't be so easy. I had to come up with those designs for that. They sat down and brainstormed. Eventually landing on ten favorites are thinking was the simpler the better. They chose designs like the american flag. A snowflake and wine glass things they thought would have brought appeal once. They had their designs. They needed to get their magnets manufactured to do that. They searched for businesses that made similar items swag for events and companies pins badges. That sort of thing. They had a list of five of those companies. They reached out to get quotes. They look for the right mix of cost quality and timeliness eventually finding all three in one supplier invested two thousand dollars and their products in hand and just two weeks additional five hundred dollars were set aside for packaging and a bit of it for marketing which they intended to start right away but since they weren't experts they weren't sure what to do so they turned to their own network. Told anyone who'd listen about their new business and the sales started to trickle in on top of that. They tried facebook and google ads but while those channels drove traffic they didn't convert many sales to improve the momentum. Hey tried something. He'd heard about social media influencers. His tactic was to contact those with followings in the five to twenty thousand range you thought they probably weren't inundated with offers the way more popular influencers were and could therefore be more receptive to mass. Max turns out he was right for the most part influencers with that size. Following five to twenty thousand were attracted to the idea of getting some free product in exchange for promotion since the cost of it all was very minimal. It was a big win for the mathematics team once again. This all happened very quickly. We started in august twenty twenty by the time. September rolled around. They sold five hundred dollars worth in october. They were presented with a new surprising opportunity. The company sister works for heard about mathematics and ask for the option of a custom order since the team already had the manufacturer and knew the costs involved they agreed. We're able to produce a fully customized mass magnet in a matter of weeks more importantly it opened their mind to the potential of customization. They spread the word in their local community and ended up with custom orders from schools. Salons clubs it all helped the bottom line which continued to grow the customization pivot was incredibly beneficial because it solved another problem which was excess inventory when ordering the magnets. There was no way to know in advance. Which would sell which wouldn't meaning. They have a lot of unpopular designs leftover by adding more customization revenue. They can rely less on preorder designs and guarantee. They aren't racing money which is good since they have no intention of flying half mask so this is an example of a project that you can start quickly like really quickly and in response to a problem you notice and guess what first of all great example. Congratulations to the mathematics team. And guess what. We're all going to be wearing masks for quite a while. Like i think it's pretty clear at this point Fortunately help us. On the way hope is on the way in the form of a vaccine and everything else but at least a lot of parts of the world. We're going to be wearing masks for at least several months. So this has the potential to really ramp up and i also think even though it's smart that they did this pivot of going from the p- redesigned options to the customization for various schools. And such. i think that's smart for them. But i still think there's actually room for somebody to do the redesign ones. So if you're looking for an opportunity maybe think about face masks one form or another. Because as i said i think it's going to continue to be thing

Enabling Startups To Give Investors the Information They Want
"Cover an incredibly important topic for startup founders and entrepreneurs because is harder than ever for incubators accelerators to get their portfolio companies funded. Why because investors are demanding and want to see the numbers behind the story and often includes revenue projections customer acquisition costs lifetime value projections, and how they interact with each other not to mention the assumptions behind those projections. So as a result portfolio companies often fail miserably and understanding presenting and backing up such numbers for that investors, which brings me onto the problem. How do you get funded now typically less than? Twenty percent of portfolio companies are getting funded or receive follow on investments, and one of the major reasons for this is because they don't understand the metrics that matter essentially, we've got two different sides here talking completely different languages, and the startups don't know how to model their business to actually present it to investors boot this show is about solutions not problems. I hear you shattering down your phone. I get here you, and you all ROY. And that's why I've invited the guys from lean case onto the show today. Because lean case supports incubators accelerators receives private equity family offices and business angels to get their portfolio companies funded. I'm not going to give you all the answers in my intro. That's not how it works either. So book elope and hold on tight gang. So I can be meal is all the way to Germany, so we can speak. We'd Eckhart ought wine entrepreneur business model expert and founder at lean case. So massive warm. Welcome to the show. Can you tell the listeners about who you are? And what you do. Sure. Thanks a lot near first of all for having me on your show. And it's a great on. Really? I'm my name is fine. I found it an exit two companies the first one was a mobile payments company, which was acquired by Sybase SAP about ten years ago. The second one was excels is thought with a t from Easter L which was acquired by being identity about four years ago. I'm now working with Brian which is a French investment Bank as an adviser, emerges an equations, and we find investors bias of mainly software SaaS companies in the B two B space. I'm also a member of a digital advisory board of large German Bank, and I'm working as a partner in two smaller BC companies, but I can't really do without product. And that's why I started reading case understanding is linked case suppose. Incubators accelerators VC's private equity, family offices and business angels to just get their portfolio companies funded. So can you help anyone listening just hearing about you for the first time, but maybe saying the scene and telling them a little bit more about the kind of problems that you stole feel clients. A what makes you different from other solutions out there? Well in my different roles. I have experienced than I am experiencing the funding investment process from the startup and invest aside. And I believe when it comes to metrics numbers. This process is really completely broken. And actually, this is all not only show if he talked about startup investors is also true for if we talk about decision making in incorporates and decision makers about taking decisions about corporate projects. So I think one of the biggest challenges is that often the relevance of unit economics is completely ignored. So what is unit economics in this about answering? The simple question is the lifetime value of a customer significantly higher than the cost to acquire him. And this is super important question. When you and I've I've seen companies asking for money to scale that company, but the unit economics just warned right? And this is really wasting money so often this question is completely ignored. In any excel sheets when when it comes to business modeling and from the startup side. Business falling today. It is really about reinventing the wheel every time you develop an excel spreadsheet from scratch again, or do you try to find a suitable tabulate and instead of dealing with a business questions you'll have to take care about exit foreigners and most people on just throws in excel. And then we'll actually never be quite become one. And that is why many spreadsheets are simplified or full of areas. And I was lucky in one situation that I had a great model. But even if you have a great model, you don't have any clue about riverside benchmarks, and Ben it means garbage into a great models also garbage out, and you can also look at it from the investor sausage. I'm from the investor side investors for they they often receive ten next spreadsheets and eight of them are really to simplified and almost ROY throughout opening them. And the ninth one is completely over engineered. And and the tenth one is a good one. But even if you if you said this. Quality issue aside, if if you had ten grade malls as an investor you cannot compare them they all using different structures. They use different definitions and formulas and do the time to understand them. And check if they walk, right? I'm in how as a method do you ever want to gain insights learn and with this kind of structure an s this is tech show. We do have lost also founders listening as well. I've got to ask I mean, we'll kind of technology road is technology play in your business link case technology is really important for us at lean case, I'm and because we want to come up with a standard set of templates and business models that would cover more than eighty percent of all the business cases, which are too big deduct. I'm and this is why lean case has to be very flexible platform, we have built into the platform modeling and calculation layer. And in the future users will be able to inject new models even almost on the fly. And currently we are at a point where we can add new models. Even specific for customers and make them reusable in a few days, and that is already much faster than they you can create a new exit model from scratch.
"eckhart" Discussed on Oprah and Eckhart Tolle: A NEW EARTH
"Deep meaning and purpose to it. And for the rest of the world if you bring your your presence. Yeah. Yes. Yes. And we all have encountered that the difference between people whether it's a waiter or the toll booth operator, or, you know, just every in every one of our life circumstances. All right. Let's talk about you say that the alignment of your outta purpose with your inner purposes, which we talked about last week. The inner purpose must fuel the outer purpose of wise. Ultimately, it's not gonna work for us. But the alignment of our our purpose with in a purpose is called awakened doing. And that awakened doing is the next day age the evolution of consciousness on our planet. There are three modalities of awakened. Doing acceptance, enjoyment and them. On page. Two ninety five you write each modality represents a certain vibrational frequency of consciousness that is you need to be vigilant to make sure that one of them operates whenever you are engaged in doing anything at all. This is key folks from the most simple tasks to the most complex if you are not in a state of either acceptance enjoyment or enthusiasm look closely, and you will find that you are creating suffering for yourself and others. So let's explain each one of them you touched on it a little bit earlier. That acceptance does not mean condonement, it means I accept this moment for what it is. Yes. And so when you're doing something you'll be amazed. If you become aware of this observed people around you whole many people of constantly interstates of disharmony because they cannot be either acceptance enjoyment or enthusiasm about what they're doing you use the. The example in the book of changing a flat tire. Now, you don't have to enjoy changing the flat tire that you would have reached another level of consciousness can enjoy changing us, which I'm sure you could you may be could change it with enthusiasm are let you know when it happens. Okay. But so you don't have to enjoy changing the flat tire. But at least to accept the tire is flat. You will have a much better experience rather than cursing. The fact that you've had a flat tire just let most people do the first time you get the flat tire. Everybody goes damn. Yes. Flat Titus can't believe it and even more. So if there's a nine in the pouring rain, that's never convenient. No. Yeah. So the question then is you have to check inside to see what what is the inner state of consciousness that you're bringing to this action to whatever you're doing. What is this in a state of conscious m I? What state am I in? And then often you will realize that you are in a state of denial of the present moment. Okay. So you said acceptance you just said this is just saying what is is. And if this is what I have to do at this moment, then I might as well do it without resistance and that is the same as if it's a flat tire. Or if it is as my friend Kimberly was saying earlier with the girl and her boss. My boss is obnoxious. Yes. That is what is I'm not going to change that. So let me figure out how to deal with that. Yes. And and the exceptions orally history to reapply only to the present moment, if the buses hitching, then saying whatever he says, right? This moment, am I able to accept this Emma bringing exceptions to this here? We are talking specifically about when you're for forming some kind of action, right? And what is the question is wanting? Energy flows into the doing. That's right. That's the question is the energy of denial on negatively. And and once you're here developed a little bit of sensitivity, you can very easily tell by observing other people whether the energy that flows into what they do is was contaminated with negatively or whether it's it's presence or consciousness loads and told you the qualitative difference is enormous. I mentioned the waiter as an example, how does he put the plate on the table is he just doing Joel because he wants to get out of there through awesome, just just making a living or is he honoring this moment. And by honoring this moment, he's honoring you he's honoring life and something flows into the simple movement of putting a plate on the table. Just as one simple example. Right. That changes the entire environment around him. Two. Okay. Well, the reason you go into acceptance again is because of the energy that you're bringing into it. Yes. And the next modality for awakening is enjoyment. Yes. No. That's a notch above accepted. Yes. Different free, vibration frequency has everything is about vibrational frequency. Yes. People are bringing energy to everything that they do. Yes. Okay. No enjoyment is a high frequency, right? Some things easier, of course, to do in the state of enjoyment. One much almost say you do them naturally in state of enjoyment things that you like doing. Yeah. I love this quote Eckhart onto ninety seven you say on the new earth enjoyment will replace wanting as the motivating power behind people's actions. When's that gonna happen? Well, not in the collective, but about it can happen in the individual already now where we do things because we. Enjoy them. Yes. And not because you want more and want more and want more because so many people have expressed how you get more things and get more things that you want more things and want more things, and that leaves you with an empty space filling trying to fill the alive upper things. Eventually you come to an empty empty space in three field. Nothing completely unfulfilled. Right. And so the wanting is the usual thing that comes out all of the ego. Ick state of scarcity or lack which I always say I when the eagle. Predominates? There's so I need that in order to fulfill myself in order to find satisfaction. I need to achieve this in order to be fully myself. This is the underlying assumption right of wanting and that is the old energy of wanting. So and so you go out, and it becomes very stressful because you're tribe trying to arrive at that point. Yes, always trying to get away from this moment because the next month promises greater fulfillment. Yes. The next one comes because when he comes it's the Nala gain. Which of course, you want to get away from. Completely insane right normal. Okay. So getting to the place where you can have enjoyment from things because enjoyment. Does what enjoyment brings an enormous empowerment to what you do and it flows into what you do. And this is the beginning of creativity, which comes out of that when the creative power of the universe becomes conscious of itself it manifests. Joy. You don't have to wait for something meaningful to come into your life. So that you can finally enjoy what you do there's more meaning enjoy then you will ever need the waiting to start living syndrome is one of the most common delusions of the unconscious state. That's important because many people are trapped in length illusion. They are waiting. Twas something to come into their lives, which will finally give them joy or sense of aliveness the misperception that joy comes from. What you do is normal and is always dangerous because it creates the belief that joy is something that can be derived from some. Else which is an activity or thing. Don't people do things that bring him joy that what it looks like. But it's the same process that we talked about little earlier when we talked about manifesting something from within the joy is there. It comes from the fullness of life that you already sense within you at this moment, they misperception that joy comes from. What you do is normal. Also, dangerous creates a belief that joy is something that derived from something else you then look to the world to bring you joy to bring you happiness. But it cannot do that that is why people live in constant frustration because the world's not giving them what they think they need. You will only enjoy any activity in which you are fully present any activity. That is not just a means to an end. It isn't the action you perform that you really enjoy. But the deep sense of aliveness it flows into it that aliveness is one with who you are. I got that. Right. But is that enjoyment the same as pleasure? No pleasure comes from something without. Out outside of you. Okay. So you derive pleasure from something outside of you. I asked that because you say this means that when you enjoy doing something you really experiencing the joy of being in its dynamic aspect. That's why anything you enjoy doing connects you with the power behind all creation. See I read that. And I thought what about people who enjoy gambling or enjoy these pleasures okay sex or enjoy being sadistic or enjoy on harming other people of all enjoy saying nation isn't behind that of no resumption. I'm skull that enjoy. But is not true joy in it. Okay. Being addicted to a pleasure something outside that feats the eagle okay in body. And pleasure. The by the definition means pleasing me. Yes. Which would be ego. Yes. Got it got it. When you become more awakened everybody. Things began. To flow in your life in a way that they had not before. And that's what's supposed to be happening. These, you know, you talk in the book about, you know, serendipitous encounters. I don't think you used the word but things just start happening. They lineup. Yes. Yes. You have to be there for this to happen. If you're not there, you have to be in the know. So that live can work for you. You can't if you deny life, but denying the now live contract is like shutting closing the shot. Just the sun. Cong come in. Yeah. The sun doesn't mind, but some. Why not open the hottest and let the sunshine in the strange thing is that it's when you no longer to ni- the present moment then. Not only do you see all these things that are lining up there to support you also it's more things are coming into your life. Absolutely, be of assistance. Absolutely. And so that's wonderful. Once you have Aleutian airy impulse of the universe. Yes. Rises up to me. Yes. It does it. It does not mean that you will never again encounter child is right or or if you have a if you want to have a certain cause of action, you want to go from here to there always, of course, being conscious that the step you're taking this moment is the most important step. But you might still want to go from here to that. But it does reduce the fear or. Yes, does reduce the fees because you know, you can always bring your sense of presence to whatever the moment is. Yes. And that you'll be all right. Yes. That's right. And as soon as you encounter, an challenge, not resist it. But immediately come to an acceptance of the new situation and then see. How that is. Very often. It turns around and becomes actually helpful. Yes. In the same way that a martial arts. Muster always uses the opposing an energy. He never the martial arts.

"Hello to all you podcast listeners. We're bringing you something really special one of the great spiritual thinkers of our time Eckhart tola, and I are giving you a chapter by chapter class on what I believe is his groundbreaking masterpiece. Eckhart bestselling book, a new earth awakening to your life's purpose? This book resonated with me in such a profound way. I truly think that it's the most important book I've ever read. It's changed the way I live my life so much so that I always have a copy on my nightstand. Because I constantly give myself a refresher course. And now more than ever we need to create what Eckert calls a new earth inside our personal lives in our communities and the world give it a listen and over ten episodes. You two will be opened up and learn how to quiet your mind. Get your ego in check live a fully more present life. We're talking deep big picture even delving into consciousness, and the reason why we're all really here. My greatest hope is that Eckhart quiet, wisdom and patient teachings will resonate with you as they have. With me each podcast episode will start with my conversation with Eckhart about a chapter, and then Eckhard answers questions from people who are reading along in the book. So I encourage you to get your own copy of a new earth awakening to your life's purpose and join us for a thrilling, enlightening and spiritual experience. Welcome to the final class of our new earth series. You know, I have just love being able to bring this to all of you for those of you who are new to Eckhart and a new earth. I hope that this experience has been as I opening and as heart opening as it was for me, and so many others and continues to be for those of you who are revisiting the book, hopefully, you reading and hearing things in a new way deepening your understanding of Eckhart wisdom if there's one key message in a new earth. It is to recognize that the only time that matters is now there's only the present moment and every time we get better at recognizing the present moment awakening to that. We get better at recognizing our ego when it shows up every time, we get better, recognizing our pain body. It means restricting our spiritual muscle. And we keep that muscle in shape by being more centered. More thoughtful by living more consciously. That's what this is all about. And the result of all this hard work. You get a life that gets filled with a lot more. Meaning and a whole lot more joy. So let's get started with our final class chapter. Ten a newer. I just again want to say thank you to everyone of you for helping us to create this new earth here with Eckhart Tolley. And with me the themes of chapter ten are truly the culmination. I think of what all of our work has been about how to bring consciousness to every moment and to every action of our lives in the process learning that we are far greater than anything that we could have imagined ourselves to be. So we're going to get started. You talk about the brief history of your life on page two eighty two the coming into manifestation of the world as its returned to the unmanifested. It's expansion and contraction on the previous page, you talked about the earth expanding the universe really expanding and contracting. Those two movements are reflected throughout the universe. In many ways such as in the incessant expansion and contraction of our heart as well as the inhaling and hailing of our breath. They're also reflected in the cycles. Of sleep and wakefulness each night without knowing it. I love this. You return to the unmanifested capital S source of all life when you enter the stage of deep dream, the sleep and then reemerge again in the morning replenished, those two movements the outgoing and return are also reflected in each person's life cycles out of nowhere. So to speak you suddenly appear in this world. Birth is followed by expansion. There's not only physical growth, but also growth of knowledge and activities and possession. This is a time where you mainly concerned with finding pursuing your outta purpose each person's life each life. From in fact, represents a world a unique way in which the universe experiences itself. And when you're form dissolves a world comes to an end out of countless worlds, I thought that was so beautiful. That's the bottom of page, two eighty three everybody each person's life each life form. In fact, represents a world. A unique way in which the universe experiences itself. So we are manifestations of the universe experiencing

"Delus-. So these things happen. It's a wonderful opportunity for you to see your own ego. And by seeing it realize awareness grows in you, Bob. What's your question for Eckhart? Unpaid handed sixty five Eckhart refers to your external purpose becomes charged with spiritual power because you're aims intentions will be one with the evolutionary impulse of the universe. I love that. But it's but is the evily -ciary impulse of the universe. That is so great let's read that one more time. Once that foundation us, he says fulfilling your primary purpose is laying the foundation for new reality and new earth. Once that foundation is there your external purpose becomes charged with spiritual power because your aims and intentions will be one with the evolutionary impulse of the universe. Thank you. Because I had written a ha and the three little I've read it three times. I got stars circles around that it's a great. Thank you for bringing that up. Bob. Okay. What do you mean by that? No. I'm not sending you back to the book. But the answer is somewhere in the book. No. So, but I'm not sending you there now. So it's at it. Okay. The the evolutionary pompous on the universe is the growth of consciousness. It's going to both something is flowing into this world of so-called matter physicality, something is flowing into this world of physicality, oh matter that comes from a different dimension. Almost one could say, well, how do I know this because I know it in myself, and I know it I've absorbed in other people to something is flowing into this world of this. It seems to be very heavy heaviness of matter something very different flows in which I called consciousness, which you can call it spirit. So spirit is beginning. Has already started long time ago. But Morton now beginning fully through the human form amongst other phones to come into this world, more and more fully this is the arising of awareness, the arising of presence and all that is part of the greater evolution because there's a famous dictum, which is so true as above so below. So whatever happens here on this planet, and in the Uman foam will be reflected throughout the universe. These universal movements as above so below as below so above. So there's what happens here in Mike in the microcosm of the us. When also be happening in the macrocosm. So when I say, how people might ask me, how do you know what the? About the purpose of the universe is the solution of the universe is. Because I know it in myself. It's if you know it in yourself, you know, many many onset, it's even about the macrocosm because macrocosm is no more than a reflection of the inner, and you see it all the time in nature all the time in nature, the whole process that's going on in nature is also going on with human you. Compare ourselves to to nature the principles are this. Yeah. Did that answer your question? Bob. Kinda don't you have to to really know the answer you have to go within is not through the minds or through somebody like listening to me. And then saying, okay, I believe what you said. I don't want anybody to believe what I said, I want people to to really go within and verify within themselves whether or not that is true in their own experience. So by becoming more conscious of your inner being K, many answers will come. Okay, let me let me take a stab at it interpreting what I hear Eckhart saying he's saying that there is, you know, there's a universal source or power of energy that all of us that that we all stem from that universal power or source or energy you with me. Right. And you can call it. God you can call it. Whatever you choose to call it. You can call it, you know, higher consciousness or you can call it universal energy. You can. Call it the divine when you tap into the part of you that is we're calling consciousness or presence or inner purpose. When you tap into that that is connected to the source of all universal power and energy it with me so far. Okay. And when you tap into that part of you. That is connected to all universal power and energy your aims and intentions will be one with what all universal power and energy is striving for and what it's striving for is for you to allow the consciousness to come through you as a human being. So that's what he means by Evan luminary impulse the impulse of the universe is to support you and you bringing about your higher consciousness. That's why you're here is to allow that part of you. That is connected to all that is universal energy the source or God to to better. Explain it. It is the God in you when you allow the God in you to come forth. The God of all things support that. Yeah. You just get a demonstration of that. Because he hold an anti safety. When you spoke those words, very powerful energy came through so beyond what you said ended it came through with. It was actually a demonstration of that. Well, thank you did good. You got it. Now. Bob. Yeah. Thanks Queen and Bob thank you guys. Well, shall we continue here? You say you're in a purpose to awaken. It's a simple as that you share that purpose with every other person on the planet because it is the purpose of humanity. So let's again talk about what it means to awaken doesn't the very word purpose imply that you can do something about it. Purpose means on purpose. Austrade quest. You say you can't make it happen that it is an act of grace, this awakening and multiple jobs. The the first moment of awakening type or doesn't happen fast moment, which is the decide Antic -ation from the stream of thinking and theorizing might only be glimpsed at first the arising of awareness. You're seventy becoming aware that is a rom underneath thinking around stillness inside you touching maybe alternate. But that stillness is primarily an inner dimension. And it. Can arise anywhere. But sometimes it's good to have experienced in there where the environment environment is most conducive to experiencing ultimately, the inner because if you don't feel it on the inner real you won't be aware of this off the silence around you. That's right. It's only through the inner that you can be aware of the outer silence. So to to be aware of silence. How how can you be aware of silence only by being still? Yeah. There's only the students in you. That is a way of silence. If your mind, we're totally occupied with noisy thinking, you wouldn't even know it still around you all you would say someone. Oh, it's very still carry on thinking, right? When really experience it. So there's the the equivalent of outer stillness, the this is the ultra dimension of spirit dry, as you can you can sense the spirits out there in nature, but you can only sense it because you. Already have it within you that in new? That's response that senses it so only people whose mind is not totally noisy can actually be aware of silence. And so I sometimes observed when I go I go for a walk in the forest everyday and often, I see people jogging walking their dogs and very few a really they're talking talking on the phone have headphones on they're talking to that friends and all the events anywhere office, right?

"So realize that life is an adventure. And part of the adventure of life is being in that state that you are in. Now, if everything well already clear to you know, everything well, ready mapped out. There would be no evolution of yourself. Say Ivy that is part of what being twenty-six is. All that. Is that is what twenty six is. You're trying to figure it out that is. Yeah. That is what the twenties or four and another very helpful thing to remember is one of the most wonderful things in your periods of life is to make mistakes. Yeah. It goes mistakes. Means you realize, oh, that's not that wasn't my pompous. Yes. And so you a little bit closer to your troops. And then perhaps you think that is my father and then after while you realize no that's not it's very helpful to make mistakes because gradually you begin to realize what it is. That is right for you and many times as card says, and this chapter Ivy, and you will find in your twenties twenties or about figuring out where you wanna be in. There's this frustration. That's why they call that show the young and the restless because there's a restlessness about it. And I know that because. I've kept journals since I was fifteen in my twenties. I'm just restless restless restless, and when I was your age twenty six I was a anchorwoman in television doing the evening news. I hated it every single day. And what I now realize and even then my dis- displeasure with being in that place. Every day was really informing me what I needed to do when I needed to do was to get out of that space and many times being in a space that you can clearly identify as this is I do not want to do this. I wanna be in television. I knew but I do not want to do this. And you know, and I had my my my father and everybody around saying you're going to give up that job in television. I knew I could not do that news fell to exploitive to me. So many times if you're in a position where you know. It's what you don't want to do is in that also helpful at Carlow. Yes. Yes. Full while I thought my life was to be an. Damage in university. And then the realization after years of spending time talking hot to become a professor realize. That's not my life problems at all I had to but I had to go to the promising career Damian is the problem. I gave up the PHD I gave up the promising career and to my relatives. My mother thought I was insane to give that up. But I knew this is what I had to do. It was so clear. There was no doubt about it anymore for a little while. There was Donald and then the realization was so strong. I'll have to walk out of there and that led to a period of uncertainty for a few years. I didn't know what am I supposed to do with my life? He I am. I was just valley managing to survive and gradually I lift, but I was not unhappy. I was happy in the present moment, then already and then gradually something involved. People started asking me questions. Means people that I met casualty in pox, casual and gradually kind of spiritual teaching starting to happen. And after a little while when somebody called me for the first of all, you are spiritual. Teachers, that's what I am. And so the the purpose came by itself, it came just out of that state of just being won't as and not being unhappy with not knowing being at ease with not knowing then it's much more likely to come to you when you at ease with not knowing. So the question that you can ask yourself can be at ease with not knowing is what you say to seventy four that Ivy had mentioned earlier you become comfortable with uncertainty, infinite possibilities open up in your life. And it means when you become comfortable with uncertainty. It means fear is no longer a dominant factor in what you do. And no longer prevent you from taking action to initiate change. That's the big thing. Yes. Because as long as you are afraid, you cannot allow the energy of what is supposed to happen to come into your life as long as you afraid, right? Fear blocks that yes. Yeah. So. Be alert and watch your mind to see what kind of thoughts it produces feel? Also there maybe the emotion of fear as Oprah size rising occasionally associated with a thought it's going to happen to me. Yes. Because the mind wants to know, what's the what the future is going to bring up, but how jets life would be oh dirt really boring. It would be if you knew already what's going to happen. Well, part of that is because to people get afraid because of again, what Nixon Nick is our spiritual teacher this way. Because of Nick said last week about worrying about your bills because you're three you're living outside yourself. You're creating more debt creating more debt creating more debt allowing yourself to be to operate from the thinking mind at the time that you made these decisions for yourself. You were living on practically you said at the poverty level. So yes. And so you survive somehow you make it do one more question before. You go. Is there anything in your life that you that you truly enjoy under certain things that you enjoy doing that may not be necessarily associated in your mind with career? Not really that. He can think of nothing I can think of. We'll tell you then what's left? What's left is for you to enjoy the present moment and that you'll spiritual practice. Yeah. But I thought you were saying earlier IV about, you know, trying to align your passion, what you love and getting paid for it, isn't that what you were talking about earlier. Well, something I was passionate about two line something since lying what I'm passionate about once. I figure that out. I don't really know what that is right now. Yeah. To reiterate something that Eckhart was saying last week. It doesn't come out of your head for everybody. Who's looking for that answer for the purpose of your life? Or what should I be doing? It does not come from your head. It's not something that you're ever going to think up don't think it being still and allowing the the presence of a universal energy the presence of consciousness to come through you in such a way that it's a feeling. It is a feeling it is not something you're going to think up how to do it. And you will just you will you will start to feel that I feel better. Doing this thing that I feel doing the other thing. It's a feeling that comes to you not not not something that comes into your head. Yes. And you need to be careful that you are not in a state of dissatisfaction because in disatisfaction. It's the onsite is not likely to come within from without. So keep you in space clear aligned with now. So that no negativities arises. And then may I'd also for you and everybody else who's trying to get this whole idea of purpose. Some clarity about that. When you allow yourself to be still with it. You're not afraid of the uncertainty. The the universe rises up to meet you the world Eckhard says in here. I can't remember what page in this chapter. But he talks about how coincidences happen, you know, little things in big things happen. So you then have to be alert and paying attention to your life. So

So I encourage you to get your own copy of a new earth awakening to your life's purpose and join us for a thrilling, enlightening and spiritual experience. I have never been happier in my whole life than in this class with Eckhart sharing. All of this information with all of you. So here we are chapter eight which is all about finding more inner space, not even a word. I was accustomed to using before reading this book, which is such a great thing to think about Eckhart reminds us how cluttered our lives have become with things, and he's talking about more than just material things it's the things on your to do list. The things you're worried about all the things that distract you from being in the present moment right now so chapter eight is all about boosting your awareness discovering, the stillness we all have inside us. No matter what's going on. You can always go to the still space and truly connect to the present moment because once you can do that you're tapping into true consciousness Eckhart rights. The very end of this chapter that you are never more essentially more deeply yourself than when you are still. So we're going deep into chapter eight as we head into these final chapters. It's really gratifying to hear from so many of you who feel that your commitment to this work is making a difference in your lives. I know I feel that way. And I'd like to again, thank all of the students from around the world who watching who are willing to awaken to the deeper meaning of your lives. One of the things that Eckhard said that really struck me you said that the opposite of death is not life. The opposite of death is birth. Life has no opposite life has. No opposite, Fresno officers apostle of is only for a few years, but you basically live experiencing itself temporarily as this person as this person this personality go, but. John lying it. You are live that is tunnel. And so when you go into stillness, it's easy to sense that underneath the personality is an aliveness that is a presence as consciousness that is timeless, and that's the life beyond the foam of life. That you also. And that's why it has no opposite. That's right because it's forever. Yes. An all the opposites only exist in the wild of foreign the world a form. I get that. Let's start with an overview of what this chapter is about. What is inner space? What you just described? I don't remember. When this time I came to me. It must have been doing toll on never. I don't believe I used that in the power of nal. I realized that most people most people's mind is full of stuff full of one sold after another full of continuously rising thoughts motions. And the external life is full of things that need doing one thing after another one thing after another. So I observed that in many people's lives, there seems to be no space. There's only one thing after another one thought after another one thing to do after another one thing to be worried about after another. I noticed this absence of space in Uelmen beings. And really that's in space or spacious nece

"Emotion rather than to be taken over by the emotion. Actually, I think children can learn this a lot easier than stealth Ken 'cause we're so overly conditioned. Yes. And that should be the one of the main things that children on at school. But so far that's not happening. Right. And also, Wendy, I might suggest this, you know, I think one of the things that would have helped me a lot. And I found this with my girls in Africa who come from really disadvantaged backgrounds. They are disadvantaged and one of the. The things I want to teach them is a life of service. You always feel better about your life when you can be of service to someone else's. And so if your daughter even ten is exposed to children who are less fortunate than she is children who are orphaned or abandoned, or you know, in poverty, I don't know what the situation is in in Melbourne, but children who have less than she does. And she is able to see that her situation really isn't so bad and allowed to feel a sense of gratitude for who she is. And where she is. And what she has. And yet, also empathy and compassion for people who have less than she does. I think that that will also even at ten years old begin to offer some perspective for her. I'm salute. Thank you so much for your call very much. Thank you. Okay. So breaking free. How do we do it? You say how long does it take to become free of the the pain body on page? One eighty three tell us how long. The important question as I say is not how long it takes to become free of the pain body. But how long does it take for me to stop identifying with the pain, buddy? That's because it's more important to stop identifying with it. Because in on sense, y'all ready free the payment bay still be there in you for a while. But when you stop identifying with it that's free to Moradi. You say the answer is, of course, it depends both on the density of an individual's pain body, some are more dense than others. Yes. As well. As the degree or intensity of that individual's arising presence. Yes. So the more you're able to bring that sense of awareness, or as I said in the beginning that that the u you who is disguised throws awareness. That awareness is you disguised as a person the more. You can be present with that. Yes. The more dissipate. Yes. It doesn't happen instantly know. But every time you decide dentist every time you on there s the awareness, the NFL of the pain body already diminishes. So every time there's a little bit less of it. And it's the what happens to the energy. It's all a ninety all one. There's only one energy, but it appears in different frequencies, and the pain body energy has sought in frequency. It's contained it's rigid. It's tied and it becomes freed, and it contributes to the rising awareness, and you say, but it's not the pain body, but identification with it that causes the suffering. That's right. The pain body itself is only no power over known in. It's not suffering anymore. When you don't identify with it. Then it's only an unpleasant feeling inside you you can hardly call it suffering. But it suffering when you become eight or it becomes you that suffering. It's not the pain. Nobody but identification with the pain body that forces you to relive the past again, and again, and again and keeps you in the state of unconsciousness, I'm on page one eighty three everybody. So a more important question to ask would be how long does it take to become free of identification? Yes, that's the key. And that and the answer to that. Of course, is it doesn't really take any time. Because audit requires us to be aware this moment as it arises in the moment at arises to see it and regularly be the awareness for it. Be the space for it in another word, another expression, we can use are you able to be the awareness for the pain body to be the space for the pain and say, oh that is that means you have broken the identification. All it requires is for you to be present in the now as the awareness and to remember that the past no matter what it is. No matter. How awful it was. How horrifying how much suffering the past has no power has no wasn't moment. Because we'll to rise is out of the present moment is the your the dimension of consciousness that we call presence or when it's a dimension that. Was already there in you own ways, but had been covered up, by density of emotion, and density of conditioned mind, stock just thinking and the way you get to that is to bring yourself back to the present moment. Get still yes, get still it still. And then that arises that I mentioned that arises is good call. It goes beyond who you are as possible it is transparent. It's transparent dimension in you. And it's the that's the only thing that can free you from the purity personal round, which is has its place, but is very limited. And it's the only thing that can free you from the past and the heaviness of the past and the past cannot prevail against it. It is impossible because there is it is the only Pala is. So it is also the time list. I mentioned in you when we talk of presence awareness. There is no past and future in presence. Or when I got that when you say on the page one eighty four when you feel the pain body don't fall into the air of thinking. There's something wrong with you making yourself into a problem. Yes. The ego loves that. Okay. The knowing needs to be followed by accepting. We talked about that a lot tonight. Anything else will obscure it accepting means you allow yourself to feel whatever it is. You're feeling at that moment. You can't argue with what is while you can. But if you do you suffer. That's how we suffer through allowing you become what you are vast. And spacious you become whole you're not a fragment anymore, which is how the ego perceives itself your true nature, emerges, which is one with the nature of God. And then you say Jesus points to this when he says be whole, even as your father and having his whole the New Testaments be perfect is a mistranslation of the original Greek word, which means whole this is to say, you don't need to become whole. But be what you already are with or without. Out the pain body. Yes. Yes. You already now. This brings us to the question that Denise in Michigan asks she says is Eckhard perfect Eckhart. You seem to be almost perfect. Although I know nobody is do you ever yell? Do you ever get angry or feel sad? I'm not perfect because the form cannot be perfect every form by the very fact that has foam is one thing. But not the other so whole. Yes, I'm I feel I'm aligned with something far greater than the little person. And that's and that is where I rest in that is where inspiration comes from whether teaching arises this is presence. And it is it is not. It goes far on this little person. This little person is insignificant. Doesn't matter very much to me. So this I don't look for perfection. I don't look for perfection in my sales because that would be terrible frustration. I do things that people perhaps will regardless not perfect. I've I I'm waiting to hear. I I have a glass of wine drink, I like my glass of wine ocassionally, drink coffee at Starbucks almost every day. And sometimes people come up to me and say, you'll drinking cofer you shouldn't be drinking coffee. What do you need coffee for? That's why not enjoy it who. So I enjoy all kinds of things. I don't have many negative emotions that I think the last time, I even had a negative emotion. But it's possible I perhaps members maybe some years ago. Yes, I was watching people were mistreating an animal and has felt anger. So it can happen. What did you do when you felt the anger? What did you do with that anger? Did you say all I'm feeling anger? You notice the anger? Yes. And the situation somebody else interfered at that very moment. Otherwise, I already taken steps towards stopping it. And so the anger was there. I felt it and it was in my sister. Of a couple of minutes as vibrational intense. My brazen in the buddy. And then it's dissipated. I let it go. Like, you don't just like like little things don't upset. You have. No, no. I've let gold I had so much of that in the past so much suffering with all kinds of little things. It's it's not worth it. Yeah. I never understand this because I'm not, you know, I don't get triggered by. You know automobiles driving. I never understand the people the road rage. That's right. Yes. And the why. Then why not getting in a not being led in a line or being cut off? Why that would cause you to be? So I don't understand it either. But for many people that is something they personalized the traffic. So it's an ego ick phenomenon. So when when somebody does something regarded as a personal insult to them to their dignity, or so, and of course, if if it were personalized the traffic. It's gonna they wouldn't do it with the weather. If some hail rain hail or rain hits your windstream, then you have see wouldn't get angry. But if Dr KATs across then you suddenly get angry, but it's the same thing. It's just an energy field, cutting cutting across why pastoralize it, and I may said people suffer so much stress in traffic because if you don't react than there's no stress if you don't pass allies other drivers if they were had some personal. Gra disagreement with you. It's nothing to do with you. They don't even know you right? If you don't pass allies things, it's actually quite stress-free or you get stuck in traffic, and you get so frustrated get a second traffic. Yes. I know that can be a wonderful meditation. You can't move. Why not be in the body feel the intense alive too alive in your energy field and everybody who's listening every been stuck in traffic you now after reading the book, you know, how ridiculous it is

"Your mind and suddenly make your mind thing. What it wants to think so remained the SEO n is for eight all this pain, buddy. Then it cannot renew itself. And it also cannot control your behavior your actions. All it is you have contained it's not through holding it down. But you have contained fast through your presence. Okay. And then it conned renew itself through in that situation. So it suddenly it comes up, but it cannot renew itself. And then it will subside. Gain of no, but the pain Monte being very clever. It will then wait for a more suitable opportunity, and when you unless conscious in that moment, and then it will try again. And for example, you're always being tested. Yes. The pain, but he's like a little little wild animals. Something is always it's there in the back saying, okay? What's your can? I am. I going to come out now on is situation. Not not right. He's too conscious the pain body. Also, your ego Eckhart the the plane body is an ask the emotional aspect of ego. So the dentist with the pain body. It becomes part of the ego. Because whatever you identify ways becomes part of the ego. When you don't identify with it. It's no longer part of the ego. All right because what you identify with is the yes, I like this question from Lorraine from Vancouver British Columbia, who writes, I attract negatively, it seems that my whole world is one big fight. I just want people to stop instigating fights with me. I don't deliberately go out and begin conflict. But it comes to me. I hate it. I just want peace. What's the problem? That interesting. Yes. Yes. No. This is whatever you experience a repeatedly intriguingly externally is a reflection of your inner state. So you attract certain things into your life that reflect your state of consciousness, so for Lorraine is very important to become. Much more aware of whatever state. She is in at any given moment become more aware of what emotions is feeling at any given moment as the rain could not be attracting fights and conflict unless she was emanating that energy. Yes. And you say on 162 every human being emanates in energy feel that corresponds to his or her interstate. Most people can sense it, although they may feel someone else's energy emanation only subliminally that is they don't know that they sent it. Get a determined to a large extent how they feel about and react to that person. Yes now. So there are two aspects to the your inner state this the emotional aspect your inner state. What is the energy of the emotion that you feel and there's a mental aspect? What kinds of thoughts? Are you is your mind producing at this moment as your mind producing negative thoughts. What what kind of thoughts? So you need to be there. There as the awareness become aware of what is that? I feel right. A what is my state at this moment? It's a good question to ask yourself. What's my inner state at this moment at the moment that somebody instigate to fight with her? No, no normal moments when you're not being challenged. Okay. Because all these accumulate your normal state of consciousness eventually produces some external event so at and as much as possible in any onto in any situation. It's always more important what your inner state of conscious is than the extent on situation. I didn't the external situations always secondary. So what's what am I feeding now? And what am I thinking? Now, these are important questions. So become an alertness, then arises, you become suddenly realize, what's my mind saying, what's what's most of the day? What kind of thoughts is my mind producing how many negative thoughts to have every hour every minute you become aware. But. Actually of because the eagle laughs negative thinking. And so that those. You what you're saying? Then it would be impossible for Lorraine to be a peaceful person to say she says here, I just want peace. What's the problem? It would be impossible to just be a peaceful person. Minding your own business. Having peaceful loving thoughts. And people wanna pick a fight with you all the time. Yes, let's notable not be possible. So it's a little something in her that she needs to become aware of. And that's not her true self. It's a foam of conditioning her right sale is the awareness, which is already perfect. It's fine. There's nothing wrong with who is in essence be vigilant as much as possible. Have. Maybe put little spill signs at home little little remind us. So that you remember to be conscious of what's going on inside. What's going on inside me, very important? Question. That's going on. Inside me

"Understand that many traffic accidents are caused by drivers whose pain bodies are active at the time when two drivers with active pain bodies arrive in an intersection at the same time. The likelihood of an accident is many times greater than under normal circumstance. So is it always the pain body that attracts accidents and other bad things? No. That's just one factor that often them, but many other factors that could attraction accident. Many people are not not fully present when they drive well Davis from Madison Wisconsin day. Thank you for joining us. I I. Question is first off. I just wanna say, thank you. Thank you. Thank you to both of you. You are welcome. Welcome. My question is when my wife, and I have a disagreement. She comes back hours or days later line to rehash that disagreement, and she always feels there has to be a wrong or right to it. How can I get her to live in the present? And get the equal out of the white though, you NATO scene of what is your role when you have disagreements at home. I assume that your wife has a pain boating that becomes active at that time. And when you have disagreements is your pain body, also a contributing factor at home, or do you feel that it just just your wives pain body, Holly? In other words to Haji you feed into what is your part in the disagreement and in the energy field. How are you playing into the drama of a day? I don't play into drama of it. And that seemed to initially increase it more on her behalf. And Dan, but lately after going through the book. As find that. I've looked for a single thing. Horizon. Beautiful, and I just think of those and I take to a different place inside myself. And it seems that it kinda just diminishes on her behalf that. Though when you disagree or you have an argument. That means to some extent, you must be identified with a mental position. And because if you don't have a mental position that you identify with is no arguments wrecked. Soul. Soi says today this. Yes. So this is why Oprah was a little bit skeptical. Yes. When you were talking. So it's perhaps before we talk about your wife. Maybe they something that you can do. So that you let go of identification with mental positions when you discuss things you can still discuss the practicality of certain things that you need to talk about. But don't become identified with a mental position of rightness that makes you right? And because that is what the eagle thrives on. And that is what feeds the pain body whenever you identify with anything. It'd be it's the go. Yes. Whatever you identify with becomes eagle. So. Perhaps bring more vigilance interest. Specially when you see situations developing that is going to become an argument, all you can see that the the pain body in your life is becoming active in, and then it's is tired of being particularly allowed and vigilant inside yourself. So that you do not get drawn into opposing her in any way. And even Dave the reason why I said, none was skeptical because of what Eckhart just said if I may reiterate, if you aren't if there's no drama at involved at all with you. If you just become piece, then the argument has to dissolve like the woman the story that he tells them the book of the woman who came and it was so upset and carrying all the papers in the bills and so forth, and as he sat there just listening taking it in. She finally said, this doesn't really matter. Does it and left and went home? You remember that and? I understand what you're talking about. Because often when you start reading this material, and you start to awaken yourself. We become a little self righteous about it, you know. So perhaps maybe there's a little bit of that still remaining with you. Or you want to say I am. So because I know this happened with stem and myself, we're in a in a discussion, and I'm feeling well, I am very wakened very evolved person. So what you're saying is is not going to upset me. But that attitude the energy of that my ego and my self righteousness is what could contribute it to the drama. You see what I'm saying? I do. Yeah. Do your need to be right or you need to feel like, you know, I'm a little bit more superior because I'm not engaging in this. And you are yes. Yeah. Yes. So that's. Alertness and vigilance is very important on your part. I think what you just said here is so important for every one of us who's who's trying to continue to wake into this process that whenever there's an argument or disagreement the thing is to not and it's not to ever make it about the other person. Even though it seems to be the question is not what can I do for my wife for my partner for my boss for my co worker, but it is what can I do in the situation? Yes, right. Let's let's let's all what is my contribution to it. That's right primary, and then your wife, I don't know whether she has an interest in a spiritual teaching or the pain buddy, have you ever mentioned to her the pain voting not to blow out there's a pain buddy attack happening. But when the payment is nobody hears you when you know because when you talk to the pain boaty about the pain, buddy. The that was actually dangerous because the payment throw something at you.

"Hello to all you podcast listeners. We're bringing you something really special one of the great spiritual thinkers of our time Eckhart tola, and I are giving you a chapter by chapter class on what I believe is his groundbreaking masterpiece. Eckhart bestselling book, a new earth awakening to your life's purpose? This book resonated with me in such a profound way. I truly think that it's the most important book I've ever read. It's changed the way I live my life so much so that I always have a copy on my nightstand. Because I constantly give myself a refresher course. And now more than ever we need to create what Eckert calls a new earth inside our personal lives in our communities and the world give it a listen and over ten episodes U2. will be opened up and learn how to quiet your mind. Get your ego in check live a fully more present life. We're talking deep big picture even delving into consciousness, and the reason why we're all really here. My greatest hope is that Eckhart quiet, wisdom and patient teachings will resonate with you as they have. With me each podcast episode will start with my conversation with Eckhart about a chapter, and then Eckhard answers questions from people who are reading along in the book. So I encourage you to get your own copy of a new earth awakening to your life's purpose and join us for a thrilling, enlightening and spiritual experience. Hello everybody and welcome to week six of our new earth series. I am thrilled about this material. This is a book that's always on my nightstand. So that's what's exciting about this. Material Eckhart always beat you where you are. So last time he introduced us to the concept of the pain body. It's an accumulation of all the pain negativity from our pass the stuff that's really hard to let go of simply put your emotional baggage. According to Eckhart, though, the pain body is the source of all the friction in our lives. We all carry our own to one degree or another for some people that stronger than others, and we've all met people with some head to have heavy pain bodies. But the good news is you can free yourself from the pain body after all chapter six is called breaking free. So today we explore what triggers that pain body and how we can begin to free ourselves. From its grip. We're also going to look at how the pain body affects shoes. Drennan how you pass it on. So parents you don't wanna miss this. Let's get to it. Open up your books. Here's a newer tapped or six welcome again at cartilage. Thank you. Thank you, one of the things that we both look forward to every week is the energy that we feel from all of you out there. I consider this to be a sacred moment when we can all come together and in community this way and share in this work. So wherever you are right now. I thank you Eckhart. Totally. Thanks you for awakening with us. One of my other favorite books is a book that Eckhart only had written. I don't know how many years ago the couple few years ago a few years ago, and it's a little book with wonderful passages in it. And it's called stillness speaks that really speaks to just on a different level. So what we've been talking about in new earth? It says stillness is your essential nature. What is stillness the inner space or awareness in which the words on this page or being perceived and become thoughts without that awareness? There would be no perception, no thoughts. No world, you are that awareness disguised as a person. I just love that that you are the awareness. That's what we've been saying week after week here is that you're not your thoughts. You are the awareness of your thoughts disguised as a person. And do you not your sense perceptions? You will the awareness that makes all sense perception possible, you'll not only motions you're the band, this that makes all these emotions possible. So that's the end that's the dimension where you are timeless. Everything else is time. So when you lose touch with your inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself when you lose touch with yourself. You lose yourself in the world, your innermost sense of self of who you are is inseparable from stillness. This is the I am that is deeper than name and form you are the awareness disguised as a person. Yes. All right. That is beautiful. So everybody we're discussing chapter six breaking free. Let's start with an overview of what this chapter is really about in chapter five as you all know, we met the pain body. And that's we all know what that is that part of us that dicta tonight. Activity and unhappiness in Eckhart says that the beginning of freedom from the pain body lies first of all in the realization that we all have a paint body that was chapter five. We did that last week now in chapter six we're going to explore what triggers the pain body in our everyday lives, and whether it's a situation or certain things or the people do say Eckhart shows us how that we can actually use those triggers to enter a more heightened state of wariness. And also this chapter is about breaking free of the prank pain body. So you don't have to continually carry the past and everything that happened in the past, and what people did to you your story, you can release that tonight is about breaking free at the beginning of the chapter and page one sixty two you say that when you disagree with the pain body, the energy that was trapped in the pain, buddy. You say then changes itself, it's vibe. Frequency and is transmuted into presence in this way. The pain body becomes fuel for consciousness. This is why many of the wisest most enlightened men and women on our planet. Once had a heavy pain body, you say so what I wanted to ask is it so many people today medicate themselves, any uncomfortable feelings that you have you go to psychiatrist or counselor. Remember, the first thing they do is prescribe medication for you does medication. Get in the way of using the pain body is fuel for enlightenment through large extent dollars. There may be such an extreme crisis. When medication is necessary, and for people who already all medication it certainly not advisable to go off medication without the advice of a doctor. So if you feel that it's time for you to get off talked to Dr Who is relatively conscious and can help gradually to get off the medication. So. So it's really a question of not giving into this culturally conditioned behavior that says whenever you feel some discomfort inside yourself emotional disturbance, immediately to seek some external help in the form of a substance that you ask your doctor to give you rather land to be was in his comfort that arises learn to be with emotional pain that arises rather than wanting to eliminate it. Learn to accept it. Acceptance is one of the main. Focal points of this teaching teaching learn to accept whatever emotion arises in you rather than run away from age a wanting to eliminate the thing at cart. Why would I want to accept it? That's why people are medicating themselves. Yes. Why people eat they gamble? They overwork themselves. They're living denial. They become unconscious because they don't want to deal with the pain. That's what we're all trying to get away from saying. Yes, no. If you medicate, it doesn't actually go away it dollars the pain. So that you're not conscious of it anymore. It's still there in the background. It's the same thing for many illnesses. The for example, I had a heavy cold couple of weeks ago. I didn't take anything and some people take things too. So that the symptoms are surprised of the right, it doesn't suppress the coal it. The cold is still there. So. Why accepted is because it is here at this moment. So it's part of bringing this INA. Yes. To whatever arises in the present moment is part of becoming friendly with the present moment. Even if on the surface, the present moment doesn't look that. Great. So we have bringing and this is where the awareness begins to come into the emotion. If we bring acceptance to whatever we feel at this moment, rather than not wanting to feel it the equivalent of that would be an external situation that arises, and then I resist it because I don't want this situation to be as it is. But it already is. Then you just cause stress when and that's what you say in this book and also in the power of now wanting something to be different than it is is what causes stress and creates further negative emotion. If there's some emotion you that is not pleasant. And then you don't want to be feeling what you feel creates. On top of the old motion. It's already there another negative emotion that wants to deny what stand. So the best thing to do is to feel it except it allow the feeling to do whatever it's going to do to you make you feel sad or angry or upset or whatever. And then choose to do something about that. Yes. Or now st-? Yes. Realize I you of the awareness for that emotion. You're the space for it. You are awareness disguised as a person, you'll not emotion. You're okay. So then already shift has happened because if you completely identify with the emotion than the motion will very quickly rise into your mind, and it will control your thinking. So and you will think it's you. Yes. Yeah. He will think he's all you'll be identified with emotion. Let's say it's anger that arises. Yes. Slides trigger triggers. Enormous anger and immediately you start to think angry salts. Correct. Or if it's sadness or depression, you immediately start to think thoughts that reflect the emotion and the pain, but loves that because the pain what he will feed on the energy of your thinking. That's right. And once you're trapped in the vicious circle between emotion and emotional thinking when all the self talk in your head that is everybody experiences. Most of the time these self talk in the head, then becomes the voice of the pain, buddy. They talking in your head. And then all your interpretations of other people of events will be totally distorted and very negative because you say at the bottom of page one sixty two when you realize it pain bodies unconsciously seek more pain that is to say they want something bad to happen. You understand

So I encourage you to get your own copy of a new earth awakening to your life's purpose and join us for a thrilling, enlightening and spiritual experience. Hi again. So glad you're joining me today because this classes another one of my favorites. I know I say that I've only said it about three times because I have three really favorite chapters in this book chapter seven now, you know, the full title of Eckhart spoke is a new earth awakening to your life's purpose and in order to awaken to your purpose. You have to be able to answer the question who am I who are you who are you at your core? Once you take away all the labels. What's really left of you with the capital wife will figuring out who you are. And perhaps more importantly, who you are not is what this class really is all about and hopefully that is all becoming a little clearer to you. As you read the book as you'll see you'll have little epiphanies am a little under the weather, but I can tell you. I love. Love doing this so much nothing. Dampened my spirits or enthusiasm for these conversations with Eckhart. So my apologies for the stuffy nose and the sniffling onto chapter seven of new earth. I truly believe that is each one of us becomes more waken aware in our own lives. So we'll our families and everyone being encounter our communities, and our and our country's eventually our world in so Eckhard, totally. And I welcome you once again to yet another lesson chapter seven my favorite chapter thus far. All right, everybody. We're discussing chapter seven binding who you truly are which I know is the reason why so many of you picked up this book in the first place because when I first announced it, I was reading the subtitle that the book is a new earth awakening to your life's purpose. Let's start with an overview of what this chapter is really about you begin with no self chapter seven start with those two words that you say are inscribed. Above the entrance of a famous Greek temple. You say on page one eighty six what those words imply is this before you ask any other questions. I ask the most fundamental question of your life. Who am I? And then you say on page one eighty nine that, you are not the ego. So when you become aware of the ego, and you doesn't mean, you know, who you are. It means you know, who you are not. But it is through knowing who you are not that the greatest obstacle to truly knowing yourself is removed. So let's start off with these two questions who aren't I? And who am I? And of course, the best starting point is the first question who aren't I because what is left when you realize at it's usually a process for most people realizing who you are not letting go of identification with things and so on. When you realize who you are not then suddenly who you are. Becomes revealed to you. And who you are cannot easily be put into words because if it codes, then it could be answered in one simple sentence. And then everybody could repeat that ons. Believe that they know who they are. That's so we start with knowing who you are not and that begins for people sometimes with loss, but they lose something valuable that they had identified with or deaths comes into their lives. Some kinds of breakdown on his us to happens. Sometimes those people suddenly. Awaken awaken. Something has been taken away from them that they had identified with for many years that had become part of their sense of self. And if something very fundamental that has been part of your sense of self is removed deaths loss, even

"About her and what was going on. And why she was interacting with us the way that she is. My question is now that I've seen that. Of course, I wanted to call her and have a read the book, and but you've already talked about how sometimes that's not necessarily the best way to approach, right? People write a hot. What is the way? How can I really reconnect the family? She has separated from our family, she separated from her children from us, and we had no relationship at all. And it's really tragic, and I want to do something to help bring us back together. And don't know what to do. So at the moment, you have no contact with her at all she has totally with John everything I do send her emails every month or so just to check in. Sometimes she responds, but very terse and cold most times not. While the. On. I hope an opportunity will arise for you to get together at some point. So you can continue to invite her. If there's an event at home or whatever, and then just be open. And but when she does come it's very important for you to not to buy into her and drama. I don't know where this happened in the past with us. She used to drill other family members into her drama. That's usually the tendency. Now, when you meet again, then you will realize, of course, you will be in a different state of consciousness because you will see that what she is suffering from is the disease of the pain, buddy. And that is not part of who she actually is in truce. So you can't be there as a very compassionate presence. And when the drama arises again, as it will because her pain body will be very active again, when she meets you any family member when it happens again, it is very unlikely that you will be you will find yourself forced to react to the pain, buddy. Because you'll be present. So you can simply recognize the pain in her without the need as that was under past the need to react to it, and that will buy into her drama and feed her drama, and that we very true. Experience for her somebody who simply accepts her the way, she is. And if the accusations come at you, whatever she does, you this whatever whatever form the drama takes you sound like, you know, her I know the pain, buddy. They all the same basically. No. Then you can you can simply accept that. She's suffering from this and simply be there as a compassionate presence without reacting allow her to be in her pain, buddy. And that that means that the drama cannot sustain itself a very long if only one part one person place drama de needs to so you're not feeding pain buddy anymore. And then see what happens. She may be confused. I've experienced that quite a few times when people came up to me with heavy pain bodies this history that you tell in this chapter friend friend who comes to your house, and she has all the papers, and she's complaining, and she doesn't know what to do. And she lays out all the papers, and she's complaining complaining planning and Eckhart basically says nothing, but just listens and is the presence therefore her and finally she picks up her papers confused, and does it goes. Home in the next day says what did you do to me? Yes. Yeah. Yes. Yeah. But don't underestimate the pain body's ability to draw out some to make you unconscious again to punish some kind of button. And you will find yourself reacting again because pain buddies are very cunning, very clever, and they know exactly what what would make you unconscious, and what will make you react you speak of it. Like, it's a creature. That's like an alien force inside of us. Yeah. Yes. That's how I see it really. But you see that Linda that this is this then becomes your sacred spiritual journey. This is a part of your spiritual journey to not be drawn into the drama while I it's so interesting, you put it that way over because that's what I've kind of come to the conclusion that this is part of my awakening. Yeah. If I were all in my family is to kind of be the one to help. Her get out of this. Yeah. And not by judging and not by telling her to but by being that, which you, you know, want wish to emulate. Yeah. And that's the hard part of that is not such engine because I guess that's the part of the pain body that she activates in me. Does your anybody wants to say who do you think you are exact? I've been there and. And of course, when the when the pain body takes over a passing the the whole personality becomes transformed. And sometimes people are shocked when they they marry somebody or they started living with somebody. And this this lovely man or woman that they saw that they loved so much one moaning, suddenly he or she. Turns into a little monster, and the total energy shift in them talk complete change of energy like like, it's totally if they were possessed by completely different very negative personality, and that comes as a shock open to people when they start living together. And again, it doesn't mean that necessarily that you chose the wrong person to live with it just means for the fast time, you experienced the pain by show in Spain. But also what you what we were talking about in the last chapter you replaying a roll up until then playing the role. I am in love with you and often love you say about your own possessiveness. Yes. And so the roles easy to play as long as you're not living together, then you can sustain the roads. But when you saw living together, very soon the roles cannot be played anymore. And also, that's why I was thinking the pain bodies. What happens on a lot of holidays? Linda you've seen. This in families. Everybody comes together, and you have all those pain bodies in a room lashing clash in reacting to one another and all living in the past about the past. That's what all the that's what the coming together for families is about thanksgiving and Christmas day are the best day for the pain buddies because. Really everywhere and often the families go through the same thing year after year, really Bank. You Linda for bringing that up. Thank you so much. Yeah. The reason why all the have all these pain bodies clashing thanksgiving on the major holidays, they come together and people have a an image in their mind, the Currier and Ives the painting of what they want the thanksgiving dinner to be and instead, it becomes something different. Because everybody's bringing their past living living that moment through their past. Yes. Yes. Mazing? So how do we change that world the? Peep, it just takes one person to be present and one person not to participate in this. So when next event happens family, gathering, whatever it is. Then you will see the usual comments. We'll be made. That's right, and the usual reactions will happen. He did. Yes. Yeah. Yes. All you, all you. Visit your parents, and your parents don't fully approve of you. And then they say, well, you remember ten years ago? I told you you should have done that you would be better of now if you had done that right and gained immediately. If you're not present pain buddy will arise and become defensive Anga will arise. So ran it. You're drawn drama. Yes. So it requires great alertness not to be drawn in right? So because the. Don't underestimate the pain body's ability to draw in sometimes even very present. People can still be drawn. And you were saying that it happens in intimate situations in family situations. More often than not because I suppose because out in the world. Everybody's trying to be at least on their best behavior. A lot of people who are taking this class. You know, are working people who see it in their jobs everyday with people every day. I love them page one thirty four when you say, although the body is very intelligent cannot tell the difference between an actual situation and the thought it reacts to every thought is if it were a reality. It doesn't know it's just a thought to the body a worrisome fearful thought means I'm endanger and responds accordingly. Even though you may be lying in a warm and comfortable bed at night, the heart beats faster muscles contract breathing becomes rapid. There's a build up of energy. But since the dangerous only a mental fiction, the energy has no outlet. The rest of the energy turns toxic interferes with. Harmonious functioning of the body. So that's what you said weeks ago about worry. Yes. Yeah. Oh to to to just see in oneself when warrior rise as what we call warrior is simply repetitive negative thought patterns. That's right. And your body doesn't know the difference. And so all of that energy is inside your body. And that's what makes people sick. Yes. Yes. So it's very important to clear up your mind. So that you stop the continuous negatively of the ego. Ick self talk as we call it. So recognize it and then step out of that stream of thinking. Use any device, you kind I recommend device number one to step out of the stream of negative thinking come into the present moment. Take one or two conscious- Bryce. You've stepped out of the stream of thinking or feel the inner body feel the aliveness in your arms Johan's your legs, put your tension there. Right. You've stepped out of the stream of thinking all if look at something and bring your full consciousness to the active perception, for example, tree or flower, anything natural dispensed, look at anything natural give it to your full attention.

And if you're an animal lover like me, you're going to love what Eckhart has to say about the greatest lesson. Our pets can teach us. They're not just there to be pets big lessons there. And here we go chapter four at Cartolini's a new earth. Welcome everybody to week number four. Of our new earth class. Thank you again for joining us as we come together to study and to discuss Eckhart Tolis a new earth. I am just so happy that so many of you around the world are making time you're giving time to yourself every week to be awakened. And we're all doing this together. It is really my deepest hope that our collective consciousness will begin to create a powerful transformation not only in our individual lives, but in the future of our planet. So welcome to you, all and welcome, sir. Thank you. Yes. Let us begin here on chapter four which is a very long chapter. Yes. And you wrote this you must you must have been at it for a while underway. It's reflects all the main themes in the books to actually go ready contained in chapter. Yes. The chapters called role playing the many faces. Ios of the eagles. So before we really began. I'd like to take a moment and talk about one of the most frequently asked questions, so many people who are committed to to the book and becoming aware of a new way of thinking a new way of conscious want to know how they can relate to people in their lives who are not yet on this path. And don't think they need to be. Yes. The main thing is that the shift can only happen inside you so not to expect other people to also change or to expect say, I cannot change unless somebody close to me also changes. The main thing is to take responsibility for your own state of consciousness and allow other people especially people that you're close to to be where they are not to demand that because something is happening inside you and your. Beginning to change, not months that others would also change change. Does not come about in others by trying to make them change. The most powerful way of bringing about change in others is not trying to bring about change in the other two completely except the other as he or she is. So that's that is absolutely vital that they're even schools of psychotherapy that recognized that so you give the other person you complete acceptance, and that part of this change that's happening in us is that we step out of the judgmental mind, but continuously judges the other. So we step out of that. And if we stay out of the judgmental mind, we are able to simply accept the your partner close friend of family member, relative this. This where they at right now, they still going the old behavior patterns. What has changed is? You are no longer resisting that I Don reacting to and by reacting reinforcing that pattern. That's right. That's right. So you're not taking part in that game. A more part of your change has to be your willingness not to judge, you know, to sit back into to be an observer in your own life. And then two more clearly see the ego and others as you also see it in yourself. This don't judge it. No. And it's just know that that's what it is. And don't mistake what you're observing the behavior that people manifest as them. Not. That's not true. They are. Hey, let's vital distinction. Because if you mistake that for who they are then you will perpetuate that kind of behavior. So that's not it bone work. Acceptance is. Vital exception. And isn't it sort of like, I mean, all of you who've asked that question. It's kind of like when people joined the church or are quote born again, or you know, we've heard about being born again in the church or you find Jesus or you find Buddha or you discover a new way of being for yourself. And now you want everybody to go to Jesus, and you want everybody to believe what you believe that is part of your eagle? The now wants people to believe what you believe. Yes. Yes. That's the Trump won control injure even this teaching which is really based on belief at all. So it's not a new believe we're not trying to find some new believe it's going beyond the thinking mind to into a winners butts is always the danger. When you discover something new that you talk on shared with every other and sometimes it works because sometimes the other person is totally ready and say, well, I never realized they recognize it from within. Because there's the readiness is there. At the raiders is not there in everybody's. So some people buy copies of the new us or the Paul of knowledge for their friends relatives, and then give them out. And sometimes they disappointed when the other person says doesn't make sense to me means they are not yet ready, and that's fine. Maybe they put it on the shelf, and maybe ten years later. They're ready wide constable. Absolutely, absolutely. We're going deeper into identifying the ego in all of its forms chapter four role playing and the many faces of our ego. Let me start by saying that I think the essence it's a long chapter. But I think that the essence of this chapter is what you say on page one hundred and four everybody that you are a human being what does that mean? Mastery of life is not a question of control, but of finding a balance between human and being mother, father, husband wife, young old all roles that you play the functions you fulfil, whatever you do all that belongs to the human dimension. It has its place and needs to be honored. But in itself, it is not enough for fulfilled, truly meaningful relationship or life, human alone is never enough. No matter how hard you try or what you achieve. I just love that since I loved it so much I wrote. Wow. Yeah. We're while human alone is never enough. No matter how hard you try or what you achieve. Then there is being it is found in the still alert presence of consciousness itself. The consciousness that you are human is form being is form less human and being not separate. But interwoven, that's the essence to me of his chapter. Yes. Could say the essence of the whole teaching in a way. Yes. Pointing it. So and of course, human alone is never enough. No matter how hard you try a what you achieve and that is the essence of why people are in such suffering in such struggle and such angst against themselves in life. Is it not hundreds while they play roles because ego place roads because there's unawareness that within you. There is the source of all power. So people who are out of touch with the power within all the place where all power resides the aliveness itself consciousness itself, then they feel a sense of lack. Why are they not in touch with it because they are not present? They're not in the present moment because the present moment is the entry point into that place of power within. If you're not present. You don't realize that is a source of power with? Thin. And then you believe that you need to get secondary power from someone or some situation or other people than the ego plays rollers to manipulate the environment and other people to get what it thinks it needs, not realizing that all the things that things will give it the power that it seems to lack all that is already within you. If you could only be present in the novel. I got it. Okay. So the question is how not to lose ourselves in the human dimension. How not to by being present in the now. Yes. And by realizing that whenever you lose yourself relearn human dimension in the all the stuff that's the being being human brings with it. Yes. The on the most primordial level losing oneself means losing one sales in that continuous stream of thinking that goes through people's heads. So you it drags you along it takes all your conscious. Attention. Remember? We started today with taking attention away mind and putting it into the body, right? Another thing you can do is take attention away from thinking and put it into sense perceptions, and really look, and listen and touch things like a lot of arises. You know, what I found by doing this? I don't know about all the rest of you. But I have found by being more present just doing that one exercise putting yourself if I'm walking along a path in the woods near my house. Be. E there and not be you know, in my head thinking about what I need to do just to be there. And what I found is. I don't know if you all are realizing this to you are just less stressed stressed or just less calmer. And you don't carry the heavy burden of of a personality of me with the burden of past and future. My problematic future, my probably Matic past you'll much more your light and free when you walk in in presence. Then how do you ever plan for anything? If you're

It is about how all the stuff you're dragging around from your past is causing all kinds of pain and drama right now in the present Eckhard has Dame for this. He calls it. The pain, buddy. Oh, this wins a game changer. I gotta tell you once you begin connecting to the idea of the pain body. You can see it. You can. I mean, we all know somebody where it's shown up big time. And it may be showing up a new you're going to have new perspective on those moments.

So together, I believe that we are beginning to create powerful changes in our lives as individuals, and then putting that out into the world before we get started. I wanted to share something with all of you, our friend, Elizabeth lesser of the mega institute sent me a poem that I'd like to share with everybody. So listen to this card. It says standstill the trees ahead and bushes beside you are not lost wherever you are is called here. And you must treat it as a powerful stranger must ask permission to know it and be known the forest breathes. Listen, it answers. I have made this place around. And you if you leave it you may come back again saying here, no two trees are the same to raven. No, two branches of the same to Ren if what a tree or Bush does is lost on you. You are surely lost standstill. The forest knows where you are. You must let it find. You. So you love. Yes. What I'm finding to reading this book, and then working with you every week is that everything starts to be sacred. Everything starts to be you can find the sacred in the most ordinary things. And that that there is there is a there's a calmness and stillness to almost everything if you can get quiet enough yourself to feel it. Yeah. That's what's happening to me. As so many other people are experiencing, whatever you're experiencing how this this. The reading of this book, the awakening for you is taking on whatever form it does and your life. That's that's what I'm seeing for myself. Yeah. But there's everything's magical never have to board ever. No. No, that's and the need for artificial stimulus goals for people continuously to whenever they get home. They need to switch something on June, some kind of entertainments you can still enjoy entertainment, but you're not dependent anymore on that. To fill you up. Well tonight, we're discussing chapter five so glad we're in the pain. So I wanted to just start with my idea of an overview of this chapter, you say that in this chapter that the human mind seems to be hooked on on my me, and my story constant mind chatter that keeps negative emotions alive and personalizes everything you say the beginning of this chapter on page one twenty nine I'm on everybody that the greatest part of most people's thinking is involuntary automatic and repetitive. It's no more than a kind of mental static and fulfills. No real purpose, strictly speaking, you don't think thinking happens to you the statement. I think implies volition you say in implies that you have a say in the matter that there's a voice involved on your part. But really you say I think is just as false statement as I digest or I circulate. My blood digestion, happens circulation happens. Thinking

I everybody today we start chapter two we're taking on the biggest thing ever the ego. Now for so many of us at totally redefined the word ego because before Eckhard I knew it as a way to describe someone who is really kind of full of themselves. You know, like so and so has a really big ego. Well, that is what the ego is. But as you're learning if you're reading this book, it is also so much more quitting to card. It's the part of us that causes all of the friction in the pain and the suffering in our lives. It's the part that holds onto all that painful baggage from our past. And it's the part that makes us jealous makes us angry makes us depressed. And also fearful get that. I mean, it's just it's amazing. When you do today what we're going to do is focus on the first step of. Getting it which is learning to recognize when your ego shows up. This was so big for me big big big big big. And the best part is that once you become aware of your ego. You start to develop some real spiritual muscle and a higher level of consciousness. I think that's just the biggest. Wow, ever. It's an aha, Bing, Bing, Bing moment. So let's get going to be able to identify when that ego shows up since I read this book, I can just the instant my ego shows up. Oh, that's ego. Shut that thing down onto chapter to the ego. Welcome again at cartilage. Thank you. Thank you. You shared with us. How there are tools that we can use to bring ourselves into the present moment, and you were saying from that first chapter that and throughout this book that there is only the present moment, and you were saying that if we would allow ourselves to take ourselves out of our mind and just go to our breath that that we could could learn presence that way. That's how you begin to learn presence. Yes. Yeah. Yes. And I suggest that we all do that right now, which is to say, we are taking attention right now away from way, usually dwells, which is in the head in the thinking mind, and redirect our trenching to Bryce in the simple question that one could ask is or you could ask yourself is Amer still breathing. Let's. Just check if I'm still breathing. Now, how do you find out? Whether you're still breathing. You have to take attention away from the thinking mind and sense yourself breathing right now, and as you taking attention away from the thinking mind, which always vote barks using past and future as stains itself by always generating past and future thinking you also enter the present moment when you take attention away from thinking direct attention to your breathing. You'll always breezy, but usually you're not aware of it. And now we are bringing awareness to it, which means we are taking attention away from thinking, so we are not losing consciousness Riveria conscious but thinking much

So I encourage you to get your own copy of a new earth awakening to your life's purpose and join us for a thrilling, enlightening and spiritual experience. Now in this first class to kick things off Eckhart teaches some very practical ways for us to learn how to be more present. Because as he says things this is his quote things cannot give you happiness because happiness comes from a deep replace within you that you can only access in the present moment. I'll tell you this chapter either believe is going to make you want to get outside and see the world through a different lens. I know it did that for me. I started seeing everything differently. So here we go week one a new earth. Of course, I'm honored to introduce the author of this great book, a new earth awakening to your life's purpose at cartilage. Yeah. And many people are saying that they look at flowers differently. Now, I can certainly say that I do and one of the things that you said that struck me when you said that they they are representatives of the spiritual realm, and that when you are still allow yourself to be still with a flower or a crystal or a bird or really anything of nature, but you used a flower specifically does because of flow is nature on the whole is beautiful access point into in stillness. If you can be there for the president of flour is even everyday messengers from another realm. Yes. Like messing flower is much more fragile than applaud, it is more fleeting. I think it's the words cereal. So it's it has less density to age than most other things and because of the lack of density. It's almost as if spirit could flow through it more freely. So when you contemplate a flower without too much interference of the thinking mind to actually truly look this is what Jesus said, by the way in charge issue here recency, I look at lilies of the field. Yes. And so when he said that he wasn't just saying look at the list of the field. Yes. He said, look, you really have to look because there is something that they embody something that you also have a but because of all your anxiety about tomorrow. And you're thinking that's what I'm translating he freely. Now Jesus said these flowers are not anxious. They have not concerned about tomorrow and see how beautiful. Well. I'll gold closes them in such beauty, and you can live like that. Also. So he wants he used his natural round and flowers to get people in touch with the dimension of depth within them. Well, what's very interesting to me about all of this is that when I read that the first time, I thought it was a beautiful passage, and then I read it a second time and awakened a little bit more and started to look at nature differently in California. And you know, I always just appreciated the garden, aren't they lovely and all the different colors and the roses and all that. And then I decided to move into the garden without naming it. What if I were like, a babe? But if I were a babe learning what a flower was for the first time. What if I went out under the the oaks that I love so much? But I didn't know it was an oak didn't know what to call it that for the first time, I've loved trees all of my life and the. Sense of power and stillness they represent but by not naming those things in nature that I
