Often people ask questions about manifesting and the power of intention, and how that relates to the power of Now.  One person asked me about the difference between the continuous wanting that I write about in A New Earth and intention - the intention to create something.  What is the importance of manifesting things in your life, or creating, or is that counter-productive?

Eckhart Tolle > Simple But Profound Joy

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,” Jesus said, “for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” - What does “poor in spirit” mean?

Eckhart Tolle > Going Beyond Limitation

In each person’s life there comes a time when he or she pursues growth and expansion on the level of form. This is when you strive to overcome limitation such as physical weakness or financial scarcity, when you acquire new skills and knowledge

Eckhart Tolle > Peace or Drama? The True Power of Presence

You want peace. There is no one who does not want peace. Yet there is something else in you that wants the drama, wants the conflict.

Eckhart Tolle > Understanding Your Ego

I’m discovering egoic compulsions that I didn’t know I had before. Is this a good thing? How does this process work within relationships?

The “dark night of the soul” is a term that goes back a long time.  Yes, I have also experienced it.  It is a term used to describe what one could call a collapse of a perceived meaning in life…an eruption into your life of a deep sense of meaninglessness.  The inner state in some cases is very close to what is conventionally called depression.  Nothing makes sense anymore, there’s no purpose to anything. 

In ordinary unconsciousness, habitual resistance to or denial of what is creates the unease and discontent that most people accept as normal living.

Q: You talk about Presence and Being as the keys to enjoying form, and creating positive circumstances, or softening circumstances.  How does karma fit into all of that?

There’s a particular dimension where creativity arises.  It’s a little bit like the wick burning the flame, and its sustenance is the oil – it’s in an oil lamp, and you are the flame.  All the analogies, by the way, are very deficient, but it’s just a distant approximation to get you into a sense of what that place is.  So you are the flame, and you feel your way into the very source – down the wick into where the oil is, inside yourself.  That’s the place, the source, so if anything is new, creative, then it has a fragrance of the source.

The ego creates separation, and separation creates suffering. The ego is therefore clearly pathological. Apart from the obvious ones such as anger, hatred, and so on, there are other more subtle forms of negativity that are so common they are usually not recognized as such.
