Acceptance & Surrender

Whenever you are able, have a look inside yourself to see whether you are unconsciously creating conflict between the inner and the outer; between your external circumstances at that moment, where you are, who you're with, or what you’re doing, any thoughts and feelings. Can you feel how painful it is to internally stand in opposition to what is? When you recognize this, you also realize that you are now free to give up this futile conflict, this inner state of war.

~Spoken by Eckhart Tolle

Karma ~ by Eckhart Tolle

Karma is the complete absence of conscious presence. And, so it’s automatic. It plays itself out. Karma is unconscious identification with these patterns that you have inherited; the conditioned.

Complete identification of consciousness with the conditioned patterns, so consciousness is dreaming. Consciousness is awakening. Consciousness is in a dreamlike state when your identified with the unconscious patterns and then you are condemned to rebirth.

In fact many times every day you are reborn into a reaction, an emotional, mental reaction. No presence at all. Just rebirth into some form. Or, your reborn into thoughts that arise and you completely believe in every thought and then you act from those thoughts and emotions and the action creates further reactions and the actions confirm to you that you are right.

The only thing that can free you of karma is the arising of presence.

~Spoken by Eckhart Tolle
