Eckhart Tolle on Karma and Consciousness
Why do parts of my life seem like they’re out of my control?
There have periods in my life that no matter how hard I try to make change, nothing happens. I put effort into breaking patterns, doing things differently, moving and even leaving relationships.
After reading the following article, I came to the sobering conclusion I was looking in the wrong place…outside of myself.
The following insight is an excerpt from Eckhart Tolle’s article, Conditioned by the Past: Karma and Consciousness.
“The voice in the head has a life of its own. Most people are at the mercy of that voice; they are possessed by thought, by the mind. And since the mind is conditioned by the past, you are then forced to reenact the past again and again.
The Eastern term for this is karma. When you are identified with that voice, you don’t know this, of course. If you knew it, you would no longer be possessed because you are only truly possessed when you mistake the possessing entity for who you are, that is to say, when you become it….
To see one’s predicament clearly is a first step toward going beyond it. So while you are perhaps still waiting for something significant to happen in your life, you may not realize that the most significant thing that can happen to a human being has already happened within you: the beginning of the separation process of thinking and awareness.”
From here on, the process for me to initiate change starts by recognizing (and not following) the voice from the past inside my head.
