Can we learn from others´ mistakes?

There are obvious issues there. She suffers…yet despite her claiming differently, she’s afraid to let go of what’s hurting her. She maintains and constantly empowers the trauma by compulsive and relentless verbosity.

She reiterates the same scenario. She talks ceaselessly. Not a moment of silence.

Unless you let go of word-clinging, allowing a new space be created within, you’ll never have a chance to heal your pain.

Don´t subordinate Awareness to your idea of time

Emma:
Thanks to Eckhart I try to be aware of awareness all day but it only happens occasionally. I love it when I am aware like now. Thanks for starting my day with this reminder.

Me:
You see,

Let´s put it like that: Awareness doesn´t belong to Tolle, to me or to you. It doesn´t belong either to what we usually call chronological time. It doesn´t obey or fit in our classifications of time and space.

Thus, let it just happen “occasionally” – take it from there. Get to know its sparkling timeless quality. That means you need to learn to adjust yourself to the PULSE OF THE SECOND, as a new and real measure of time.
Pretty soon, you will realize that “the pulse of the second” is the only reliable measure.  To awareness, days, weeks, minutes or years mean naught as timeless time is simultaneous.

Therefore, don´t try to subordinate it your will or your idea of time – “be aware of awareness all day”.
Don´t control it in an attempt to prolong it…Whenever we try to prolong something, we prolong our ego and with it, our further suffering.

Only falseness can be prolonged, controlled and possessed.
