Eckhart Tolle on Shyness, Self-esteem and Ego

Eckhart Tolle on Shyness, Self-esteem and Ego | All About Now | Scoop.it

OPRAH WINFREY (HOST): But what surprised me is that you say that often people who are also shy are also acting out of their egos. And you say whenever you feel superior or inferior to anyone, that's the ego in you. Why is that?
 
ECKHART TOLLE (AUTHOR, “A NEW EARTH”): Well, if you're shy, then what you fear is to be found wanting. But so you're not, you dare not...

John Donovan's insight:

When our egoic mind defines my life by external things like career, brand I work for,  how much I earn, measured by the past, and what I strive here in the future, we lose the present moment and our true self.

Take a few minutes today to focus on the very present moment. That is the only time that is really existing. #EckhartTolle - #PowerOfNow

A common fear when it comes to meditating in the silence of the mind is that perhaps one will lose themselves. On the contrary, it seems that meditation is a keen way to find oneself, to be more of oneself than ever before.
John Donovan's insight:

I don't meditate but always silence the mind ;) so agree on that!

Review: "A New Earth" by Eckhart Tolle

Beneath the surface, everything is connected with everything else and also connected to the Source of all life. When you first hold on to an object without naming it, you feel its essence, which is the same as your essence or Being.

 

When you do not cover the world with words, a miracle of newness and freshness is experienced by your essential self. One must disentangled oneself with all the forms that one has been mixed up with of so far. This disentanglement is what this book is all about. The faster one labels things the more intelligent one becomes, but the less wisdom one has.

 

The Illusion of self. The words “I”, “me”, “my” and “mine” are the most frequently used and also the most misleading. “I” embodies the primordial error, a misconception of who you are, an illusory sense of identity. This is the ego.

Even if it flirts with commercialised/pop new-ageism, Tolle's "A New Earth" is a great book with very interesting and useful concepts.
