A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose – Day Two

Tolle’s extensive discussion about the ego should resonate with many. The distinction made between the ego and the essence of who we are is especially valuable. Quotes that highlighted this important lesson can be found throughout the text.

“Sometimes letting things go is a far greater act of power then defending or hanging on.”

“Attachment to things drops away by itself when you no longer seek to find yourself in them.”

“Whatever you fight, you strengthen, and what you resist, persists.”

“Spiritual realization is to see clearly that what I perceive, experience, think, or feel is ultimately not who I am, that I cannot find myself in all those things that continuously pass away.”

“The ego doesn’t know that your only opportunity for peace is now.”
