Eckhart explains how the mind can deceive you with romantic fantasies about old flames, or people you meet on the Internet, (but haven’t met in person). The mind creates a mental image of the person, and suddenly you are in love with a mental abstraction. He uses this example to illustrate how a thought can take you over, and you end up having a relationship with an idea.

from past emotional energy and unconscious patterns.

As Eckhart explains, “there are millions of people in this world who are tortured by their own minds.” The “voice in the head” creates doubts, fears, and suffering, but many of us aren’t aware of what’s happening or how to experience a lasting inner peace.
That is, until we discover the power of Presence.
With practice, Presence increasingly arises within you.
It manifests in many different ways: inner peace, empathy, an outflow of goodwill, creativity, a heightened sense of aliveness, freedom from dysfunctional and compulsive thinking, and a deep appreciation of the present moment.
Eckhart Tolle Now was created to help you practice and experience Presence increasingly arising within you. As a part of the program, Eckhart Tolle and Kim Eng will be sharing with you powerful practices that you can incorporate into your everyday life as well as during your meditations.

ECKHART TOLLE was born in Germany and educated at the Universities of London and Cambridge. At the age of 29, a profound inner transformation radically changed the course of his life. The next few years were devoted to understanding, integrating, and deepening that transformation, which marked the beginning of an intense inward journey. Later, he worked in London as a counselor and spiritual teacher. Eckhart’s written works include two New York Times bestsellers, both widely regarded as among the most influential spiritual books of our time: the Oprah’s Book Club selection A New Earth, and The Power of Now, which has been translated into more than 30 languages.
KIM ENG is a counselor and teacher who travels and works extensively with her partner Eckhart Tolle. Kim has developed a teaching approach that incorporates and complements Eckhart’s teachings. Her work translates these teachings into a structured, body-based practice to support the arising of Presence and the awakening of consciousness. Kim is the author of two instructional DVDs on Presence Through Movement—Qi Flow Yoga and Yin Yoga—and of two audio-learning programs, Meditations for A New Earth and Resist Nothing, offering practical ways to overcome our inner obstacles to Presence.
