  1. 99.9% of our happiness and unhappiness is a direct result of the stories we tell ourselves. The story of how wonderful or how terrible we are, is just that, a story. Being happy and enjoying this wonderful experience is so much easier and much much more honest without all the mind created horror stories and self delusional ego created stories we tell ourselves about ourselves and others. Without the story everything is just fine 99.9% of the time????????????????

  2. If the person has grown to be degraded as a natural state of being, it may be very hard for the mind to reorganise it's patterns whilst subconsciously sabotaging and self-degrading during the process of transformation.

  3. When they said she was going crazy, she was awakening.
    When they said that she was isolating, she was healing.
    When they said she was acting funny, she was growing.
    When they said that she had changed, she was evolving.
    When they said she did not care anymore, she finally realized that her peace lives within.

  4. It is true.????✨
    There is no need to love yourself or hate yourself,it is wasted energy to stop at this and it leads nowhere! Sensing the flow of energy that WE ARE this is vital!
    It is to perceive the energy of which we are made, of which the universe is composed of.
    WE are life! ❤️Is it not enough?!

  5. Thank you Eckhart ????????????????☀️????????️????
    For every video, for the words, Smiles and that intelligens ????????????????
    LOVE ❤️ (i can't say/write anything yet). But i found some inner peace & happiness with my self (by thinking more about God) – maybe it is the same as love. ????????????
    I don't know 🙂

  6. In this day and age it is vital to understand all these aspects of life and consciousness and protect kids from being indoctrinated with made up ideological identities .

  7. ❤ I have found that stepping into "presence" automatically opens up your capacity to fall in love with yourself. The more you entertain that state the more you are "loving yourself".

  8. Please read this

    Loving oneself in an esoteric sense, with a Kabbalah mind, involves cultivating a deep connection with your inner divine essence and recognizing your inherent worth and uniqueness. Here are some principles and practices from Kabbalah that can guide you on the path of self-love:

    Divine Spark: Understand that within you resides a divine spark, a fragment of the divine consciousness. Recognize that you are an expression of the divine and inherently connected to the sacred essence of existence.

    Unity and Interconnectedness: Embrace the Kabbalistic understanding of unity and interconnectedness. Realize that your well-being is intertwined with the well-being of others and the entire universe. Cultivate compassion, empathy, and kindness towards yourself and others.

    Self-Reflection and Awareness: Engage in self-reflection and self-awareness practices. Through meditation, contemplation, and introspection, explore your thoughts, emotions, and patterns of behavior. Develop a deep understanding of yourself, including your strengths, weaknesses, and desires.

    Tikkun HaNefesh: Embrace the concept of Tikkun HaNefesh, the repair and purification of the soul. Recognize that self-love involves healing and transforming any negative beliefs, traumas, or conditioning that hinder your connection with your divine essence. Seek spiritual practices, such as prayer and meditation, to foster personal growth and self-empowerment.

    Gratitude and Acceptance: Practice gratitude and acceptance for who you are in the present moment. Embrace your strengths, talents, and achievements, while also embracing your imperfections and areas for growth. Celebrate your uniqueness and honor your journey.

    Sacred Self-Care: Engage in sacred self-care practices that nurture your mind, body, and spirit. Prioritize activities that bring you joy, peace, and rejuvenation. This can include meditation, spending time in nature, engaging in creative expression, or engaging in rituals that connect you with the divine.

    Balancing the Ego: Recognize the role of the ego and strive to find a balance between egoic desires and the alignment with divine will. Cultivate humility and surrender to the higher wisdom and guidance of the divine. Let go of self-judgment and self-criticism, and embrace self-compassion and self-acceptance.

    Remember, self-love in the esoteric sense is an ongoing practice that requires dedication and patience. By nurturing your connection with your divine essence, embracing unity and interconnectedness, and engaging in self-reflection and self-care, you can cultivate a deep and transformative love for yourself in alignment with the Kabbalah mind.

  9. It’s interesting the concept of “Self love” … when generally it’s discussed by the same paradigmatic new age thinkers that say remove awareness of a self or self identification? … I love a lot of these people I’m just thinking critically for a moment – feel free to let me know your thoughts

  10. Is it hard to stay in shape, eat vegetables, beef and chianti? Drink a lot of water and take showers regulary, take walks and talk to some woman you want take in bed? Then you won't hate yourself, you are going to be Alice in Wonderboobs being chased by funny smelling mushrooms while Beavis is scoring with Beyonce and Butthead is passed out out of drinking while driving drive tru with the Mustang he test drived in his local car sales saloon. HA HA JUST join the army and cut your hair you maggots!

  11. I think there is really good wisdom on self love and dealing with the personal aspect of life in psychology and personal development. There are many enlightened people in the personal development field who have a more sensible message that Eckhart Tolle. We are human and have emotions and processes that are well understood through psychology and personal development. Yes, working with your ego and the self that you are, a challenging but hugely rewarding practice. Learning to relate to others better can be improved through understanding your ego self. Having a broader perspective than just spiritualuality is crucial to being a better person.

  12. But the dogs & cats are programmed with instincts & not evolved with reason like humans. We can love ourselves as a beautiful divine beings & not just ego. May all beings be happy & free! 🙂

  13. Hi Eckhart!..I love the analogy about animals not being self conscious of who they are. Yet I have always noticed this about them and felt the same way about myself. It doesn't matter what we look like in the flesh, but rather what kind of spirit we are inside. Thus I remember one time an ex girlfriend had asked me if her bum looked too big in her jeans and I replied, no!..not at all dear!..and yet in my mind I was sighing and thinking…For God Sake, does my dog come over to me then ask me if his bum looks too big in his fur, or if his tail is too long for his body, or if his paws are too thin for his legs?..I found it so ridiculous to ask me such irrelevant questions, and now it's just me and my dog. I'm sorry Ladies!..but this is a defect that some of you need to eradicate from your minds. Men too, if they all worry about they're self images the whole time. Thank you for yet another great philosophical reminder that me and my doggy is on the right path Eckhart!????

  14. Let me break this down as I see it.
    Quote; " mind pattern: Its not your choice ( ie not the brains choice) whether you love yourself or hate yourself, it is only the source's choice within every intelligent species that makes the decision how to evolve and who to breed with because it sees the image that it could fit with to breed with and evolve for its survival. The/ones image shows future faults to the source so it can adjust. Hello, it's not your choice. It's been doing that since creation. When your source makes you feel good about yourself ( ie itself) that means the source has advised the brain via the ego tool that the source has made the right decision. When there is conflict between the source and the brain, that only occurs when the brain is adopting external beliefs which is an attempt to confuse the source by someone telling you the ego is not a good thing. . The source is even trying to save you from confusion through every part of your lifes journey, it's been doing that since creation, it's not your choice. To know the source is to be all knowing therefore the question " how can I love myself" would not even be a question. The comparison for animals used here is no comparison, except for the animals source is pure survival of a source and an owner trying to manipulate their pets brain.
    This is a very problematic teacher teaching something that is not his choice.

  15. Loving yourself is only intermediate stage. It's still egoic mental image.
    Dogs and cats have no self image. They are in the present.
    The more presence that comes into your mind, the more present you are.
    Your self image stays in the peripheral.

    Thanks Eckhart. 7 June 2023.????????????????????????????????????????????

  16. I like how Eckhart Tolle explains going beyond loving and hating yourself. The chatter in my mind can be very negative at times and I can fall into a habit of identifying with it. Eckhart Tolle's teachings have helped me disconnect from that stream of thoughts and have helped reminded me of the importance of the present moment. The advice I always got when I identified with those thoughts was to learn to love myself, but that always felt impossible. Coming to a point beyond identifying with the thoughts…now I can see a way out of this mental construct, the ego identity. When people spoke of self love, I always felt trapped because I felt that I had to get to a point where that was the case for me.
