This book might have singlehandedly be responsible for making me a positive person no matter what.
“All negativity is caused by an accumulation of psychological time and denial of the present. Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry – all forms of fear – are caused by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of non-forgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence.” – Eckhart Tolle
Just that quote alone changed my emotions from then on. Now that I think about it, that quote has saved me so much stress. I might go into a negative emotion, but I won’t stay there for long because I’ve become way more aware of my emotions and what is causing them. I was spending years in negative emotions not knowing it. If I feel like I’m in a negative emotion, all I have to do is return back to the present moment. That’s where answers can come in and problems can’t exist.
It introduced me to Eckhart Tolle too and his work with other people. His answers are just so right and simple.
I read this book 10+ years ago and it continues to remain the best one I’ve read. Thank you Eckhart.
